Another coastal area of India but one definitely worth mentioning for its 600km of Arabian coastline. Situated in the south of India. Definitely a world apart from what you’ll find in Goa, Kerala is more famed for its national parks, wildlife, pristine beaches and quiet little backwaters. You’ll find a local trade here of spices, tea, coffee and local crafts.
Arguably one of the most beautiful regions of India, Kerala is relatively calm, serene and the perfect place to unwind. The tea plantations of Western Ghats are worth a visit, endless rolling hills with glistening tea trees, remember to bring your camera!
getting back to nature is definitely the aim of the game in Kerala. The National parks are a must, especially Eravikulam and Periyar where guided treks and rural homestays are a possibility for eager tourists. There’s also plenty of animal sanctuaries to visit and give your support to. The Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary is home to tigers, leopards and Asiatic elephants.
For something a little human try and find the Edakkal Caves in the Ambukuthi Hills. where you’ll find ancient rock carvings believed to be from the Neolithic age around 15,000 BC.
