Kerala is truly a paradise dear to God. Millions who have tasted Kerala at least once nod in agreement in unison. This coastal territory is located in the Malabar Coast of south western India. Kerala, the verdant piece of land is flanked by Western Ghats and Arabian Sea.

Virgin beaches, misty hill stations, enchanting backwaters, exotic wildlife, evergreen rainforests and classical art forms – the assortments tour to kerala include are colorful, rich and diverse.

There are many hill stations with reasonable altitude in Kerala.

Munnar is the prominent of them all. This mist shrouded hill station with salubrious climate is a hot tourist destination. Situated at a height of six thousand feet above sea level, this charming gem is located in Western Ghats. The name literally meaning “three rivers” – Munnar is situated near the confluence of three rivers – Mudrapuzha, Nallathani and Kundala. With its rolling hills, undulating meadows, carpet of manicured tea gardens, attractive colonial bungalows, gushing brooks and cascading waterfalls – Munnar is an ideal place for trekking and mountain biking. Munnar homes exotic flora and fauna. Eravikulam National Park situated near Munnar homes rare species of butterflies, birds and animals. It is home to an endangered species – Nilgiri Tahrs.

Out of many beaches included in kerala packages, Kovalam is the premier one. This idyllic beach location is situated in the southern part of Kerala. It is thirteen kilometers away from Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala. It is easily accessible through road from Thiruvananthapuram. Thiruvananthapuram also homes an airport. Kovalam was brought into the tourism map by Travancore kings and it is one of the oldest known tourist spots of India. In ninety seventies hippies horded to this place and from then on, Kovalam found a place in global tourism map. Although Kovalam has become highly commercialized and overly crowded from that time, it still has not lost its innocence that made it the darling of tourists. The seas of Kovalam are safe for swimming. The reasons being the shallowness of waters and calm weather.

You can walk hundred meters into sea. The white sandy beach will spring an irresistible temptation in you to lie in the sand soak the sun.

Muthanga, Periyar, Thattekad and Silent Valley are some of the famous wildlife sanctuaries and national parks of Kerala. Out of these, Periyar wildlife sanctuary is situated in Thekkady. Periyar wildlife sanctuary is declared a Tiger reserve. There is an artificial lake surrounding the sanctuary formed because of Mulla Periyar dam. You can have a boat ride in the lake savoring wildlife and surrounding landscape. Thekkady is the only place in India where you can relish wildlife from the safety of a boat. The most prominent attraction is herds of elephant bathing in the lake.

Backwaters are a singular Kerala occurrence and if you miss it, the Kerala trip can be treated as incomplete. The backwaters make for exciting landscape and cruises savoring this setting are truly memorable. Backwater cruises can be had in Alleppey, Kochi, Kollam and Kumarakom.

Houseboats are the present poster boys of backwater tourism. They are incarnations of erstwhile “Kettuvallams”, up to date, modern and luxurious. They come adjoined with generators providing for air conditioning. Houseboats incorporate sleeping space, dining space and sit out open on all sides – from where you can savor backwaters.
