Whenever you choose to explore the backwaters of Kerala, the kerala backwater cruise and the scenes from the cruise will surely be among the memorable moments.
Munnar Munnar is without doubt the most beautiful hill station in South India and one of the adventure trip in Kerala. Located at 1600 m above sea level, this was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India and the Britishers gave the lush green mountains adorned by tea and coffee plantations which is a sight to watch in modern Munnar.
Kumarakom Kumarakom which is located close to Ayemenem village where god of small things is set is the most beautiful place in Kerala (arguably) with its mangrove covered lagoons and houseboats made on bamboo, serving you the most delicious Kerala food , this place just amazes any visitor. Sailing through the calm waters of Kumarakom or enjoying an ayurvedic massage, life just slows down for you.
Wayanad Wayanad shows you how beautiful nature can be without human interference if the beauty of the Munnar is partly man made through tea gardens.Wayanad is a derivative of the term Vayal Nadu, where Vayal means Paddy fields and Nadu the land, comprising it to indicate a land of paddy fields. Wayanad is explicitly beautiful with mist clad mountains, intense forests and fertile green plantations.
Thekkady Thekkady is probably the best place in Kerala to observe wildlife while doing a boat trip. From the mighty Indian elephant to the Great Indian tiger, this place has it all.Elephants, deers, boars, bisons and lion tailed macaques are a common sight in the reservoir area. With some luck,other animals like tiger and leopard can be observed.
