Destinations to be visited
Alleppey or Allapuzha as the warm villagers call it is a small, green town dotted so perfectly with canals and clear ponds, you can feel God’s craftsmanship. As you roam the tiny streets and venture out the environment of the backwater town envelopes one with the serenity of a dream. Once on the backwater cruise you’ll almost forget that Alleppey is the heart of Kerala’s coir industry. Water of course is Allepey’s most coveted feature, in fact you can opt skip a hotel and stay on a primitive yet luxurious houseboat.
Set snugly in Thrissur district Athirapally is home to many of Kerala’s gushing rivers and lazy streams. Also set here, amidst God’s own country are waterfalls, some of which are 80 feet tall that appear to cascade from the heavens and settle here on Earth to make some of the best picnic spots.
Kochi is Kerala’s premier city. A city filled with glamour and endowed with tradition, it is also Kerala’s financial capital. Moreover, it is the perfect city to visit by day or by night. If the fact that it was the first city to have Arabian and Chinese ties doesn’t impress you; then you must visit the Chinese fishing nets; these fishing nets have withstood history itself and are still the major fishing tools. All in all Cochin has something to offer to everybody. The young and restless can experience the vivid nightlife; the newly married can simply admire the Portuguese romance still left over and if you’ve seen all life has to offer simply enter the city to relive.
Till the dawn of 1930 Kovalam was a simple village with fisher folk. It was then that the Rajah of Travancore turned Kovalam into a serene beach retreat for European royalty. Kovalam however is a place of metamorphosis and thus in 1970 it sprung up as one of the top most youth destinations. Today, Kovalam is a perfect balance of serene beaches and bustling youth. The white sands and the crystal waters make it the ideal relaxation spot while the beach side cafes and the delightful cuisine are almost movie like. As they say, Kovalam’s beaches appear so surreal, you often leave reality behind.
Set snugly in the hills of Kerala, Thekkady is not a typical and lazy hill station. Home to the Periyar National Park, Thekkady has a host of adrenaline pumping experiences to offer. It is also one of the only places in India where you can observe magnificent elephants spraying water on the boat you ride in. Thekkady rightly said is a hill station which surprises you always.
Munnar, the erstwhile retreat of the British is now one of India’s most loved hill stations. Its green flowing hills and silent brooks always compete with the verdant tea gardens to grab your attention. Imagine waking up with the aroma of fresh tea leaves, imagine a driving through a fluffy cloud, imagine boating in clear lakes; imagine Munnar.
Kumarakom is a tiny village complete with charming ethnicity and beautiful backwaters. Few places are as perfect to enjoy a boat ride on the backwaters while you sip on fresh coconut water. Kumarakom is a village close to its roots and thus unpolluted. This clean atmosphere makes the village an abode to thousands of rare migratory birds and gives India its best bird sanctuary.
Thiruvananthapuram is considered the most precious jewel in the crown of Kerala and is rightly its capital. Thiruvanathapuram is the only town that so elegantly summarizes the Kerala experience; a visit there becomes a must. Dotted with ayurvedic spas, the holiest temples and museums this town is a pot pouri of culture and experiences.
It’s lush green surroundings and gushing waterfalls gives one the feeling of paradise. Its ayurvedic spas and luxury hotels do a more than satisfactory job pampering you while the boating spots revitalize that inner romance you always missed. Wayanad is home to three dazzling wildlife sanctuary each with its own little speciality. Wayand is famous for its wide variety of plants and animals; while Tholpetty is home to the most rare and exquisite flora and fauna. Pakshipathallam is the most unique; here one can see birds resting on beautiful rock formations. Natures own art at its best!
