From Trivandrum to Munnar by bus (Kerala)

After had done some research on how to get to Munnar from Trivandrum I found a government bus that takes you there for 245 rs, which is about 3-4 USD/Euro.

And this is for an 8-9 hour bus trip! It’s incredible.

You can’t book ahead online though so you just have to show up at the KSRTC central bus terminal in Trivandrum and buy a coupon (5 rs) in counter number 2 and then buy the bus ticket on the bus (245 rs).

You need to be at the station at least 15 minutes before the bus departs to buy the coupon, which I believe is some kind of seat reservation.

I was there at 6 am but had to wait until 6:30 before I could buy the coupon and my bus departed at 6:45.

Because the timetable can have changed when you read this I advice you to call them up beforehand to check if there’s any changes but there’s definitely buses that goes daily to Munnar.

Here’s a phone number you can call to check the timetable and the bus ticket fare: 

+91 0471 2323886.

Right now as I write this, here are the buses that goes daily from Trivandrum to Munnar:

6:45 AM, 10 AM, 1 PM, 10:30 PM, 11:45 PM.

Are the buses comfortable?

No. They can be crowded at times and having other sweaty people almost sitting on your lap when it’s over 30 degrees Celsius.. need I say more?

No AC and not being able to drink enough water (believe me, you don’t want to visit the public bathrooms/toilets) if the bus driver even stops is not a fun event that I would recommend for the fainthearted or families who travel with young children.

I heard about a guy who peed himself on the bus between Delhi and Rishikesh because the driver refused to stop.

Of course I don’t know if this is true but after had experienced a bus ride or two I can imagine it is.

The bus-drivers drive like madmen, they just want to get from point A to B as fast as possible.

I mean I know my mom would scream of horror if she went on one of those buses; I always think of her and giggle within me because I know she couldn’t take the traffic here in India.

And the roads are very bumpy and the buses very old…

Forget about taking pictures, drinking water without getting it all over you, and the constant honking.. etc etc.

It wasn’t a pleasant ride at all and because of this I have a new “rule” now; no more bus trips like this if they are over 4-5 hours long.

That’s about all I can take! 🙂

Good things about the bus trip was that I got to see much more of India than I would have had I taken the train (which does not go directly to Munnar).

I was the only white person on the bus so people stare at you but you just have to get used to it. Pretend you’re a celebrity or something if it’s too much for you! 🙂

A funny incident came to mind; it was when I was at the Yoga resort place in Goa.

A group of 5-6 teenage girls came to me and asked something about taking a picture, so I just assumed that they asked me if I could take a picture of them so I said “of course” but instead of giving me their camera they came and wanted to take a picture with me with them, one by one.

I felt like a celebrity or something, it was kind of funny! 🙂

A note on this is that if men come and ask the same (and you’re a woman) say no.

They usually aren’t that innocent in their intentions and I have heard from other women that they want a picture of you with them so that they can brag about you to their friends saying you have had sex with them.

Yeah :-/

So photos with men, no, but if it’s a group of girls or a family, sure, why not 🙂

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and after our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

– A.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

Beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared

Maria, I am beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared. it was nothing less than a miracle that has allowed me come into who I really am. I wake up every morning with a big smile on my face, feeling immense gratitude for just being alive, I can’t explain it, I´m just enjoying this fully. Your guidance has so profoundly changed my life, and I cannot thank you enough.

I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

Could not more highly recommend

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Catherine Rondeau, Westport, Connecticut, USA

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

— J. Carlson

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

    You will never forget this day! Hope you can remember more situations or scenes you’ve seen during the trip and tell us, even if it did not involve you. Take care and hydrate with delicious tea (I hope..) 🙂 GS

  2. I don’t have memory like other people anymore, it’s difficult for me to hold on to them and the interest is not there either.

    I’m very much in the here and now.

    Looking back is like trying to remember a dream and it feels irrelevant to even try so I probably don’t have many tales to tell after this trip is over!

    I tell them as I go, whenever I remember to and feel inspired to 🙂

    But do ask about things, that always triggers my inspiration to come up with something to share.

    No tea yet, but will look up the tea museum tomorrow. I think they have samples there too so you can try different teas.

    That would be great, I’d love that 🙂

    Oh, I meant right away, same day type of thing.
    I was asking about scenes of the day in pure selfshenss, because I like to read about these things.
    Yes, it gets harder to hold onto anything, doesn’t it?

  4. Ask away! I love hearing from readers! 🙂

    I’m just about to go on a backwater cruise here in Kerala and look forward to it very much.

    Will post pics on FB later 🙂
