Kerala – a Perfect Getaway for Tourists
Kerala is a truly mesmerizing state and one of the most distinct states in terms of culture, traditions, cuisine and general way of life. As the state is flanked by Western Ghats on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other side, the weather pattern is unique to Kerala. It is cool on the eastern side and temperate weather on the sea front. The state has many hill stations to boast of and also is a heaven for Hindu pilgrims with many historically important temples. It is no wonder Kerala holiday packages include all these features in their programme. With as many as 44 rivers flowing through Kerala, there are vast stretches of cool backwaters. The state is even well known for Ayurveda medicine, and of late tourists throng the state to rejuvenate themselves through Ayurveda health packages. Therefore, a tourist can select his choice of package from amongst different Kerala tour packages.
Kerala has everything a tourist wants – pilgrimage, health tourism, adventure and romance. Tour operators offer varieties of Kerala tour packages keeping in mind the preferences of different categories of tourists.
For people looking for some religious and spiritual relaxation, a visit to the famous Ananthapadmanabha Swamy temple at Thiruvananthapuram, Lord Ayyappa at the world famous Sabarimala and many more famous temples is definitely called for. All these temples have a very rich historical background.
For those who want to unwind in the peace and beauty of hill stations, a visit to Munnar, called the Kashmir of South India, a beautiful hill station surrounded by lush green tea estates and thick forest is a must. One can simply idle away in the beautiful tea gardens or go trekking into the wilderness. Munnar is a must in all Kerala holiday packages. Sultan Battery is another adventure spot for the young and daring.
Kovalam is one of the best beach resorts in the world. Tourists can lounge leisurely on the splendid beach adorning clear blue waters of Arabian Sea. As such, Kovalam finds a place in all Kerala tour packages. You can also take a boat ride on the cool backwaters of many rivers flowing through Kerala. Some of the Kerala hotels include houseboat stays in their package as an added attraction. One can see the beautiful sunset on a clear day from Varkala, a beautiful beach situated below rocky cliffs.
You can have a chance to see wild elephants and other wild animals at Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. You can go around in a boat, take a conducted trip on a jeep or simply go hiking along with a guide to have a glimpse of the wild animals in their natural habitat. One can also visit Kumarakom bird sanctuary near Kottayam to see many different species of birds. Waynad Wildlife Sanctuary, habitat of wild elephants, is another very nice place to visit. Waynad is also a peaceful hill station where tourists can spend some quiet time all by themselves.
Staying will not pose any problem. Kerala hotels come in all categories – from budget to star accommodation. A tourist can choose Kerala hotels to suit his taste and budget. For those who want to have the typical local touch, a stay at house boats can also be arranged. All leading Kerala hotels offer different Kerala holiday packages to woo tourists.
