If you have never visited South India, Kerala is probably the perfect place to start. A million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the major cities in the northern states, Kerala is a haven of natural beauty and geographical uniqueness. Nicknamed ‘God’s own country’ and highly regarded as one of the top 50 countries to visit in the world, the diversity of the landscape in Kerala is mesmerising. Enjoy mountain views from lush rainforests, only a stone’s throw from the white sandy shores of the Arabian Sea.
With so much to see and do, you could absolutely lose yourself in the majesty of Kerala. Indulge mind and body in a therapeutic spa retreat, explore the mysterious backwaters from the comfort of a house boat or hop in a 4×4 and discover the local wildlife in one of the regions sanctuaries. Elephants in particular are a common fixture in this part of India, and Kerala remains one of the only places you can see them in their natural habitat.
Rich in culture and tradition, Kerala is one of the most progressive states in India. The local hospitality is second to none and although the region boasts a number of luxury hotels, home sharing or cottage rentals are the most common forms of accommodation. If adventure is what you seek, look no further, Kerala is the perfect destination for you. So what are you waiting for?
