- Fort Kochi
Known as the “Gateway to Kerala” Kochi has had eclectic influence and is an enchanting city. There have all been Arabs, British, Dutch, Chinese, and Portuguese. The region is attracted by most tourists by the architecture and historical sites of Fort Kochi. If you have children, think about taking them to Kochi’s Wonderla Amusement Park too. With all budgets, there are also a variety of hotels and homestays.
You can spend about an hour in the north of the city of Muziris if you are interested in history. The most important trading port in Kerala, where industry flourished for more than 1000 years, was badly damaged by the flooding, was this multicultural district. The Kerala administration has created it as a heritage project. Muziris spreads to the town of Kodungallur (where each year in late March and early April there will be an amazing Kodungallur Bhagavathy Temple festival). It is packed with ancient churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples. In 629 A.D. India’s first mosque was built there, Cheraman Juma Masjid.
- Kerala Backwaters
A holiday on a housing boat along the palm-Boden Kerala canals, popular as backwaters, is one of the quietest relaxing things to do in Kerala. Refrigerated Indian food and chilled beer (buy your own and bring it to the boat) make it even more interesting. You can even spend the night in the middle of a lake. Camp in the backwaters for a few nights or in a resort. Happy! Don’t miss a sunset from the island of Kakkathuruthu in Vembanad Lake for the ultimate experience. From Alleppey, most Backwaters trips begin.
- Marari Beach
After a nice and open beach break in Kerala, you are only 30 minutes north of Alleppey, photographic Marari. This placid fisherman village has an unpaved beach, from the picturesque resorts to the easy homestays, and a wide range of accommodations. There are people facing the beach.
- Periyar National Park
Kerala’s Periyar National Park, in the district of Thekkady, is one of South Indian’s most famous national parks. It remains open all year long, except during the moonsoon season, unlike most other national parks in India. Periyar is renowned for its forest and the jungle provides 30-minute elephant rides. Safaris are done by boat, which captivates the lake at sunset. There is also a wide range of eco-tourism events for tourists to take part in.
If you like tea, visiting Munnar is a must! The area is famous for its large tea plantations. See the tea picked and processed, and directly from the gardens try fresh tea. Even a museum for tea. The area is full of native plants and wilderness, the natural beauty of winding avenues, misty hills, and forests. Adventure lovers can walk to Anamudi, India’s highest mountain, explore Eravikulam National Park, climb or paraglide. Munnar is surrounded by nature, providing a wide variety of accommodation.
The environment of the beach of Varkala is striking enough to breathe away, with a long cliff and panorama over the Arab Sea. The long cliff is paved by a footpath, lined with palm trees, quaint boutiques, shackles, hotels, and bed and breakfasts. On the ground floor of the mountain, the long portion of the sparkling beach is nestled and reached from the top of the cliff. Varkala is one of India’s best beaches, it is not surprising.
The Wayanad area extends along the Western Ghats, a light green mountain range. It has a lot of picturesque attractions. The landscape is made up of abundant coconut palms, trees, paddy fields, and high peaks. Due to the nature of the region, adventure enthusiasts are also accessible. Trekking to Chembra Peak and Meenmutty Falls, explore ancient Jain temples, climb up the Edakkal Cave and spot wildlife in Muthanga and Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuaries are popular attractions. Wayanad’s many lovely homestays in the area are another highlight. One of them is Glenora.
The Kannur district of northern Kerala is one of the best places to get off the beaten track in India. It is an ideal mixture of remote beaches and a mystical spirited possession they rituals (October to May), as well as hand weaving. The beach is also located in Kannur in Muzhappilangad Drive-In. You can drive along its large sandy stretch! Relax and take a look at one of the cheap accommodations at Beach House and enjoy the peacefulness.
Kovalam, Kerala’s most famous beach, stands about 40 minutes to the south-east of Trivandrum’s capital and is dominated by a distinguished sun. At the start of the 1970s, it was catapulted to the tourist map by masses of hippies following the Hippie Trail to Ceylon (now called Sri Lanka). Kovalam would certainly not appeal to anyone, as it borders on its main beach a thick row of hotels and gets occupied, but in places, there are quieter pockets.
