Kochi | Munnar | Thekkady | Kumarakom | Alleppey | Kovalam | Trivandrum [10 N/11 D]

Kerala, a vibrant and beautiful land with mile upon mile of silver beaches, stretched taut and inviting over a lace edged coast; silent, sleepy backwaters fringed with trailing fingers of green; verdant hillsides with their bounty of spices; gracious homes gleaming with the warmth of polished wood. The heart of the land is composed of intensely green paddy fields and a unique network of rivers and lagoons. Upland Kerala, relatively little visited, comprises hills thickly wooded with teak and rubber. It is here that Kerala’s most precious spices are grown in carefully nurtured plantations – cardamom, pepper and nutmeg. Sun-kissed beaches; exotic hill stations, suspended in time amidst sprawling tea plantations; picture-book towns with winding lanes and an intruiging mix of cultures; wildlife reserves; trekking and cruising facilities; all combine to make this a most enjoyable itinerary.
