KSRTC launhes tour packages to Munnar
KSRTC’S recently launched tour packages, aimed at raising non-ticket income, debut with a trip from Malappuram depot to Munnar.
The trips are scheduled every Saturday at 1 pm which will reach Munnar at 7.30 pm. Travellers can sleep on the sleeper coach of the KSRTC depot during night. On Sunday, they will be taken for sightseeing and return to Malappuram at 6 pm.
Malappuram is the district from where more people visit Munnar, hence the first package was introduced from there. If the budget package becomes successful, it will be extended to other districts too.
During the season, KSRTC will start sightseeing services to Anakulam and Mankulam.
Meanwhile, it is reported that there is a huge demand for the unique accommodation provided by the KSRTC in two of its buses parked in Munnar.
The tariff is Rs 100 per bed and an extra Rs 50 for a woollen blanket. As the buses are parked at the KSRTC depot itself at night, travellers staying in the buses can use the washrooms there. For food, the guests can choose from the several eateries and restaurants nearby.
Even though there are 16 beds in a bus, the KSRTC would allow one or two persons to book an entire bus by paying Rs 1,600. For details, contact Munnar depot of KSRTC on phone number 04865 230201.
