Lovely Hill station with cool climate. You can easily spend at least 5days here without getting bored for a second. Mattupetty Dam, Tea plantations, Echo point, Rose Garden is a must visit. No need to carry additional woolen clothes. You can eat here in Tree Top Restaurant, Rapsy Restaurant, Eastend or Saravana Bhawan. Don't forget to buy a beautiful Kanjivaram Saree for yourself or your loved ones from any handloom co-operative.
An early morning walk earned us a couple of free freshly plucked coconuts. It was amazing to see them climb and pluck those coconuts(without any extra support), as it were a child's play and the gesture was overwhelming. In Thekkady ayurvedic massage is a must try but pre booking is required mostly everywhere. I will not advice you jungle safari as it is not nicely managed but yes you can enjoy spice plantations here and long walks in local markets for spices, chips, ayurvedic oil or dry fruits shopping.

It was is a delight to experience Alleppey. Backwaters, Houseboat, food, scenery, etc. People use boats for conveyance to office, school and other places. You can take a Houseboat for stay to experience the calmness of nature as it rows amidst the lush of trees. For sea food lovers, Alleppy offers food delights cooked in indigenous local spices. Not to forget, Kerala spices was the reason why Europeans got to India which makes the food a must to do on the list.

Alleppy has lots of seafood options available cooked in local spices in a traditional way.
Beautiful beach but also the busiest part of Fort Kochi. Go here for sunsets, sea food shops and Chinese fishnets.
