Here are all the places that you can explore on your holiday in Kerala:
Known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, Cochin has one of the world’s most attractive natural ports. It is well known for its centuries-old trading of spices, silks, ivory and sandalwood. It has a traditionally rich heritage, but at the same time, it is one of the most fast-paced and contemporary cities in India. It is very easy to be spellbound by the magic of Cochin and it is the beauty and comparatively good infrastructure that makes it the ideal gateway to the state. The city offers visitors a peek into palaces, museums, old churches, cool backwaters; palm-fringed lagoons, beaches and the practicality of a modern metro city.
Kumarakom is a small village on the Vembanad Lake in Kerala. This beautiful paradise stocked with mangrove forests, green paddy fields and coconut groves comprises waterways and canals adorned with white lilies. Kumarakom charms tourists from all over the world. It offers a wide variety of flora, beautiful sightseeing, boating and fishing experiences. It is a part of Kuttanad region and the bird sanctuary spread over 14 acres is a safe home for many migratory birds. It is a fascinating sight for the visitors. The best way to watch the birds of the Kumarakom sanctuary is a boat ride around the islands, as hundreds of swaying verdant coconut palms lining the rivers lean to brush the tops of your heads.
India’s Own Venice, Alleppey is a town nestled in the heart of the scenic backwaters. You can explore the town on a houseboat ride on the backwaters. Alleppey beach is also a pretty scenic stop. Ayurveda massages are a must in the humid bliss, a sit works like magic here. You can visit any certified Ayurveda massage centre or we can happily guide you to one.
Periyar is one of the most popular National Parks in Southern India, but these days this is more famous for its serene feel, than for sightings of wildlife. The uniqueness of the sanctuary extends around the banks of a huge artificial lake that was created by the damming of the Periyar River a century ago. The sanctuary is known for the Tigers. It has a wide range of animals, including elephants, bison, macaque leopards, jungle cats, wild dogs, mouse deer, gaur, sambar deer, barking deer. The sanctuary treasures a wide variety of rich flora and rare fauna.
Named among the most beautiful places in Kerala and India, the hill town of Munnar is worth visiting. Nestled in the lush lap of the Western Ghats, the hill town is surrounded by rolling hills covered by tea estates. The town was settled in the era of the British Raj and there are many remnants of the period in the mansions, churches and the charming city.
Close to the wildlife haven of Periyar, Thekkady is a scenic town known for its spices. It is a quick outing where you can walk among the fragrant spices, learn about them and shop for some. The rolling hills are a beauty that deserves your time and attention.
Kovalam is Kerala’s popular tourist destination and a famous beach. In 1960 the Kovalam beach was discovered by the western hippies. It was the hippies who changed the small fishing village into the Kovalam beach. Since then it has become one of the most popular beach destinations. Presently Kovalam has acquired all the accessories of a beach resort, such as the seaside eateries serving a fusion of Indian and Continental food, fast-food vendors and pubs, etc.
These and many more delights await in Kerala! Ready to explore the 'Heaven on Earth'?
