What people say

"Imagine looking up and finding yourself surrounded by palm trees and lush greens glowing with the setting sun... Imagine exploring the backwaters on houseboats and kayaking the small lanes which lead to meeting the ocean under vast blue skies... Imagine a gut reset with rice & coconut-based delicacies... Imagine tripping over well-spiced seafood & eating in a banana leaf... Imagine a week of ayurvedic treatments and massages to nourish your body, and refresh your soul... Imagine, the best of both worlds- hill stations & beach towns... Imagine your mouth drooling over the local tea & coffee varieties.. Imagine doing unique adrenaline adventure activities to actually meeting the wild animals and birds in their sanctuary.. Imagine being immersed in the culture by visiting local temples, watching Kathakali & Mohiniattam dance performances to watching the country's biggest boat race festival to shopping traditional clothing & jewelry that make you feel like an Indian god/goddess.. Kerala's got it all for you! If there's any state that hits a wholesome checklist for traveling, this place is it! If you want to explore South India in its essence-Kerala has to be the top of the list followed by Tamil Nadu. Here are some of my top Kerala destinations for you to check out: - Wayanad - Varkala (the lesser commercialized & much clear/smaller replaceable destination to Goa) - Munroe Island - Alleppey - Kochi - Munnar - Periyar If you are looking for a refreshing trip to nourish you in and out whilst getting integrated with the local culture in pleasant weather- Kerala is your place."
"Kerala, a state on India's tropical Malabar Coast, has nearly 600km of Arabian Sea shoreline. It's known for its palm-lined beaches and backwaters, a network of canals. Inland are the Western Ghats, mountains whose slopes support tea, coffee and spice plantations as well as wildlife. National parks like Eravikulam and Periyar, plus Wayanad and other sanctuaries, are home to elephants, langur monkeys and tigers. "
"Si vous cherchez à être au vert tout en étant au chaud, le Kerala est fait pour vous. Entre ses montagnes au climat clément, ses côtes aux plages immaculées, et sa riche culture, le Kerala est une destination de choix. Comptez au moins deux semaines pour un séjour entre jungle, ayurvéda et farniente en bord de mer, avec quelques jours à Fort Kochi."
