Described by popular culture as ‘God’s own country’, Kerala is a metaphor for tranquility and picture-perfect serenity. Today, this state in the south of India is as famous for its glorious backwaters and tea-covered hills as it is for its fragrant spices. In fact, a local legend claims that sailors could find their way to the Malabar shore blindfolded, guided by the glorious scent of the Malabar spices. There are several Kerala tour packages that give you an insight into its spice history.
One of the first destinations around the world to embrace the concept of eco-tourism, Kerala features several tourist villages that offer an exciting blend of adventure sports and local activities. Kerala and Ayurveda are virtually indistinguishable from each other. Pick a favourite from our several Kerala tour packages to experience the unique flavours of this gorgeous state.
Six hundred kilometres of Arabian Sea coastline and beaches, anchored by a glistening network of backwaters – a maze of lagoons – ensure that there’s plenty to do and see in Kerala. The backwaters are best explored during the annual Vallam Kali boat race, when large wooden canoes bearing at least 100 rowers race through the lagoons. The Nilgiri or Blue Mountains in the Western Ghats have several hill stations, the most famous of which is Munnar. There are several Kerala tour packages that let you experience the natural beauty of the state at Periyar National Tiger Park, Eravikulam Reserve, Silent Valley Park, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary and Wayanad Reserve. Kerala’s skies are frequented by more than 132 species of birds. You can view many of these at Thattekkad Salim Rajan Bird Park and the Malayatoor Forest Reserves.
Kerala is the perfect honeymoon destination. Our exclusive Kerala tour packages offer number of options for couples looking for budget tours to exotic holidays. Honeymooners can have a romantic dinner on the dazzling backwaters of Kerala or simply enjoy a sunset on the majestic hill stations.
No visit to Kerala can be considered complete without a day spent at its distinctive beaches – Thirumullavaram Beach lets you wade through half a kilometer of sea water owing to the region’s unique topography. Varla Beach is embellished with a long cliff and natural springs, and Kovalam Beach was once famous as a hippie destination.
