Kerala - A Gateway to Heaven

  • Relax in Marari beach

  • Enjoy the scenic drives

  • Indulge in a massage

  • Backwater in Alleppey

Kochi Munnar Thekkady Kumarakom Marari

For many travelers, Kerala is South India's most serenely beautiful state. A slender coastal strip is shaped by its layered landscape: almost 600 km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a languid network of glistening backwaters; and the spice- and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. Just setting foot on this swath of soul-quenching, palm-shaded green will slow your subcontinental stride to a blissed-out amble. Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the looking Glass and become an altogether more laid-back place. Besides its famous backwaters, elegant houseboats, ayurvedic treatments and delicately spiced, taste-bud-tingling cuisine, vibrant traditions such as Kathakali plays and temple festivals frequently bring even the smallest villages to life. It's hard to deny Kerala's liberal use of the slogan 'God's Own Country'.
