Kerala is a land of timeless natural beauty. It is fondly called God’s own country. Such is the blessings of nature showered on this emerald piece of land. This verdant region is located in the Malabar Coast of south western India. This coastal territory rolls in green vegetation from Western Ghats to Arabian Sea.


With its pristine beaches, mist shrouded hill stations, placid backwaters, exotic flora and fauna, verdant
landscape and suave art forms – Kerala lures millions of tourists to its lap.

The prominent beaches of Kerala are Kovalam, Cherai, Varkala, Kappad, Muzhappilangad, Mararikulam and
Bekal. Kovalam is the much sought after of the lot and thus it is included in almost all the Kerala tour
. Formed by three crescent shaped beaches, Kovalam is now a premium tourist destination. The tourism potential of Kovalam was discovered by Travancore Kings. It is one of the oldest known tourist spots of India. Kovalam shot into limelight when in ninety seventies hippies horded to this place. It found a place in global tourism map after that. Situated in the southern part of Kerala, Kovalam is thirteen kilometers away from Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala and is easily accessible through road. This accessibility makes it popular among locals also. The seas in Kovalam are shallow and one can go about hundred meters into water. This fact combined with calm weather makes it ideal for swimming. Most tourists cannot resist the temptation to sunbath in the white sandy beaches of Kovalam. The accommodation facilities and quality of service offered in Kovalam are world class. Most of the resorts are located in the vicinity of beach letting tourists stay in the ambience throughout.

The important hill stations of Kerala are Munnar, Wayanad, Wagamon, Peermade, Nelliampathi and
Ponmudi. Of these, Munnar is the more oft visited. Munnar is a mist shrouded hill station blessed with salubrious climate. Situated one thousand six hundred meters above sea level, this gorgeous paradise stands near the confluence of three rivers. With its rolling hills, undulating meadows, manicured tea
gardens, attractive colonial bungalows, gushing brooks and cascading waterfalls Munnar is ideal for trekking and mountain biking. There are many sightseeing spots nearby Munnar which are worth visiting like Eravikulam National park, Anamudi Peak, Mattupetty, Pallivasal, Chinnakanal, Anayirangal, Rajamalai, Echo Point, Top station and Tea Museum. Nilgiri Tahrs – an endangered species - is an attraction of Eravikulam National Park. These all make tours to Kerala more enjoyable and memorable.


Kerala Backwaters are something you cannot afford to miss in Kerala tour. The tour will be rendered incomplete without savoring the unique phenomenon of Kerala. Backwater is found only in Kerala. It is formed by canals and inlets – both manmade and natural, estuaries of over forty rivers and five lakes. Backwaters make for exhilarating landscape with shores adorned by abodes, swaying coconut trees, emerald flora and lush green paddy fields, fishing nets and various activities of life; and backwaters embellished with water flowers especially water lilies. Cruises savoring this setting are memorable
affairs. Alleppey, Kochi, Kollam and Kumarakom are the epicenters of backwater tourism.


Houseboats are now the poster boys of backwater tourism. Houseboats are modeled on erstwhile “Kettuvallams”. Although the structure remains largely unaltered Houseboats are modern and luxurious. Houseboats provide for sleeping space, dining space and balcony open on all sides. From the balcony you can relish the backwaters while on cruise. They come attached with generators providing for air conditioning. Although Houseboats are motorized, they are run in a sluggish pace.


So plan your Kerala tours and enjoy ultimate holidays in the lap of Mother Nature with immense pleasure and delights.
