Kerala is a treasure trove of experiential splendor and natural wonders. The western coastline along the Arabian Sea is high on beauty, beaches and culture with a historic past of spice trade on the Malabar Coast. The Western Ghat Mountains in the east, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, are alive with rich flora and fauna, and dotted with lush plantations and quaint hill towns. Surrounded by pristine stretches of backwaters with thriving local culture, it’s hard not to see why Kerala is God’s Own Country.
Thanks to such diversity, experiential travel is the way to go here. Watch the sun set through fishing nets, traverse the evergreen Ghats, or kayak along the backwaters. Spot elephants while bamboo rafting, mingle with locals at homestay, or discover exotic food. Immerse in an Ayurvedic massage, or just laze on quiet beaches. Kerala truly is a refreshing escape, revealing the most authentic, eco-friendly and sustainable side of India.
