Luxury Kerala Tours
Kerala is primarily a rural and scenic destination National Geographic named the state as one of their ‘Top 50 Must See Destinations of a Lifetime’.
There are wildlife sanctuaries (with many endemic animals and plants), forests, beaches and perhaps what Kerala is best known for – backwaters. As well as this diverse geography Kerala has a vibrant culture, a fascinating history, delicious food and friendly locals. Kerala is a wonderful introduction to India as it is more relaxed than many states and the people are really friendly. Kerala is like opening up a lucky bag of surprises. The first thing most people pick out is the western coastline that unfurls along the Arabian Sea. With its historic past of spice traders, European colonists and, consequently, cosmopolitan communities, each bay brings a different culture, craft and cuisine. The next surprise gift is the Western Ghat Mountains in the east, with hill towns created as summer retreats by the British when the summer heat started to defeat.
When you are working out where to go in Kerala, it helps to think of it like a well-stocked spice rack. Some are just basics and musts for every recipe. Such as the backwaters of Alleppey, or the old town at Fort Kochi. Others must only be used fresh and thrown in at the last minute, like a hiking trip up to the waterfalls of the Western Ghats, as soon as the monsoon has ended, when everything is aromatic and deliciously verdant. Ginger is revitalizing and awakens the palette, just like the Ayurvedic way of life that underpins much of Keralite’s wellbeing. And pepper, the most famous of all, represents the stimulating multi-cultural influences dotted all over this vibrant outward looking region of India.
