Kerala is one of the most emblematic state of India. From mountains to coastal cities, from the backwaters to the spice plantations, it is a place that is rich with history, culture and landscape. You start your Kerala tour in Kochi, a port town that was popular with Arab, Chinese and European merchants. There, you discover the oldest church in India as you walk along winding streets lined with mosques and old Portuguese houses dating back 500 years.
Next, continue your Kerala tour to the Backwaters where you immerse yourself in the incredible labyrinth of lagoons, rivers and canals that is a fabulous ecological sanctuary filled with traditional boats, “kettuvalmom”. You spend a night on a traditional houseboat for an unforgettable experience in this dreamy setting.
Get your dose of nature by continuing to Periyar Park and Kodaikanal (also known as Elephant Valley) where you admire the national park and hill stations which were once the summer resort of the former British Government. And finally, end your Kerala tour with some days on the beautiful white-sand beaches of Marari, where rest and relaxation await you under a palm tree..
