Kerala is truly “God’s Own Country”, favoured by the God because of the rich flora and fauna, season changes, climate conditions and friendly people. The phrase was coined in 1980s to promote the high tourism potential of this beautiful destination in South India before the travel world.
The October 1999 edition of the National Geographic Traveller Magazine chose Kerala as “One of the Ten Paradises of the world” and also included Kerala in the list of ‘”50 Places of a Lifetime”. The enchanting backwaters of Kerala are a plexus of lagoons criss-crossed with rivers, shallow pools and narrow canals.
Houseboat cruise across the tranquil stretches, treehouse stay in the lush jungle, a walk through the swaying coconut farms and lulling paddy fields, sunbathing in the exotic sandy beaches and the fascinating views from the alluring hill stations provide the much needed serenity to the travellers.
You can witness numerous timeless traditions in Kerala, be it dance forms like Kathakali, martial arts like Kalaripayattu, Ayurveda – the science of life and longevity, herbal spas or festivals like Onam.
