Journey in TAXI from Kochi Airport (Cochin) to Sabarimala

November 8th, 2011| News.

Recently I visited Sabarimala.  My journey was started from Hyderabad International Airport. In Kochi Airport, there are airport taxies. They charge around Rs.4500 for a A/C Car for Kochi Airport-Pampa-Kochi Airport.  If you book Qualies or Innova or Toyota, they charge around Rs.14/KM. Do bargain to get cheap taxi. There is a Prepaid Taxi counter too. Only taxis of  Airport taxis association are allowed to take care of passengers. But own vehicle too allowed to pick up their friends and family members. The distance from Kochi Airport  to Pampa is around 175 KM. It is the short route distance. But there are 2- 3 routes are there, which route is longer.

It took 5 hrs nearly to reach Pampa. This is including lunch break and tea break in evening too. The road was damaged in some places. But overall the route was OK.  John (ph:09400377497- anyone can call him to book the car in advance. He will give some good discount for direct booking.) driver of that Taxi told that the roads will be ready by the Mandal puja of 2011. Of-course I too observed that some roads are patched up to make it ready for Ayyappa devotees by the season of 2011. In some places repairing works were going on.
