Overview

Kerala, God’s own country, is one of the most unique states in India! Blessed by a rich & diverse culture, there’s something magical in the air of Kerala, which urges us to explore it everytime. To start on this exploration trip across God’s own country, we’ve chosen our favorite gems of all that we’d like to show you all!

Our journey starts in Munnar, a hill station located in the western ghats. Here we visit the famous Cheeyapara & Vallarta waterfalls, truly nature’s gems! The best thing about Munnar is that it's an amazing location for self-exploration as well. Following that, we hike to the Lakshmi hills; amidst nature with spectacular views. However, a trip to Munnar isn’t complete until we go for tea tasting! All the chai lovers in the house, this is a must. And before leaving Munnar, we visit the Eravikulam national park to experience nature at its best! Kerala is also famous for its spices and so we head out on a guided tour of the spice plantation at Thekkady; spend the evening boating at Periyar Lake and also enjoy the Kadhakali Kalari show! A trip to Kerala also calls for a houseboat cruise in Kumarakom to slow down and enjoy the beauty around. We also explore the village along with a local guide to get a better insight into a whole new lifestyle of people! And then we head to Varkala, Kerala’s most popular destination! However we go offbeat with a boat ride to Munroe Island and a trip to Jatayu Earth center! The evening, before the end of the journey, can be spent relaxing or adventuring on the waves while surfing! You would definitely go home with new friends, new memories and wonderful stories.
