Kerala, best known as God’s own country is much more than that. It sure will take you to heaven and back with one single trip there. With its spice & tea-covered hills of Western Ghats, languid network of backwaters and ayurvedic massages, Kerala is sure to take the soul languishing for lush green quiet away from the maddening crowds of city life, into a quiet peace that will take you closer to your soul.

Apart from the famous backwaters, rice paddies, coconut trees swaying by the river and the rich heritage of spices & tea estates, Kerala is also home to wildlife such as elephants, myriad species of birds, awe-inspiring waterfalls and rich cultural heritage in the form of Kathakali and the likes. If lucky, you will also be welcomed by the odd appearance of a Tiger at the Periyar Tiger Reserve.

There are the famous places travellers visit like Munnar- known for its tea & spice estates, Thekkady for its wildlife reserves, Kumarakom & Alleppey for its backwaters but there are also some off-beat places that should be on your must visit list if taking a long break in this part of South India. Varkala, a beach destination offers breath-taking views of the beach from a cliff. Varkala is about 118 kms (2.16 hrs) from Alleppy and a 3 hours distance from Cochin. It is famous for its beach, mineral water springs, Shivagiri Mutt & a 2000 year old Vishnu temple. Apart from Varkala there are a couple of places like Anamudi, Aruvikkuzhi waterfalls, Beypore Beach, Ashtamudi Lake – second deepest lake in the state after Vembanad Lake, Cherai beach, Veliyaparamba Backwaters and Kuruva Islands which demand a dekkho. These are rarely explored but are definitely worth the time when in Kerala.

And for the adventure lover there are plenty of options to choose from – bamboo rafting in the rivers, canoeing & kayaking, mountain climbing, wildlife safari or staying in a tree-house. All of these experiences make up the place called Kerala – jewel of South India
