Best things to do in Kerala and sightseeing in Kerala

Munnar - Kerala

This is the kind of place that will look good on any camera, no matter which angle you take your picture from. Emerald green hills, with mist looming over them like wandering ghosts, Munnar makes for a vacation that will be etched in your memory for years. Munnar happens to be South India's largest tea growing region, hence a walk through its aromatic tea gardens cannot be missed. For more insight into the tea industry, the Tea Museum can make for an interesting visit. Sadly the meddling of the plantation industry with the flora and fauna, causes many species to lose their habitats and become endangered, some being the Nilgiri Thar, the Nilgiri wood-pigeon, the Grizzled Giant Squirrel, the gaur, the sambar, and the Neelakurinji flower, which blossoms only once in 12 years. Consequently, Munnar is home to many national parks, such as the renowned Eravikulam National Park, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Kurinjimala Sanctuary, Amaravati Reserve Forest, Anamudi Shola National Park and the Pampadum Shola National Park, a visit to which is highly educational and peaceful. More quiet and scenic spots include Devikulam Lake and Attukal waterfalls. Munnar also caters to restless spirits, who can enjoy adventure sports such as paragliding, rock climbing, rappelling and even cycling. Some famous places to eat are Rapsy restaurant, Saravana Bhavan and Eastend, all known for their delicious non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. Munnar is easiest to access by road through state run or private buses, compared to flights since the nearest airport is in another city, Cochin. The nearest train station is in Aluva, although cabs and buses are easily available from both the places to reach Munnar.
Munnar, though famous for its tea plantations, is also a place of breathtaking beauty and amazing landscapes.The green backdrop to every scenery just adds to the over all charm of the place. Located in the state of Kerala, Munnar is considered a very safe place to travel to, owing to the honest and hardworking nature of the people working here. The variety of resorts around this place also offer some very attractive options to the people who are looking to travel solo to the district. Things to do: Mattupetty, Pallivasal, Tea Museum.

After connecting flights we reached Kochi in the evening. The weather was totally different from Delhi. I pulled out my jacket and folded my jeans. The weather was coastal as we say. After checking in at the Resort which was a nice resort with good and helpful staff near airport. I tried to travel in Kochi like locals. We tried to take bus from the bus stop outside the resort. Since only a few buses were available on that route we stood there for sometime but were lucky enough to find a taxi with his owner who was going home and agreed to drop us on the halfway to Marine Drive which was HMT Junction (chauraha, but its junction in Kochin). From HMT, Menaka was our next stop. A walk with ice cream in one hand felt amazing. While coming back we needed to get in a bus till Airport Athani but somehow only managed to get in a bus till Aluva. From there we got into an auto and reached our resort for dinner.

Fort Kochi is basically the old and historic part of the new town, Ernakulam. Fort Kochi is dotted by several remnants of the colonial periods of Portuguese, Dutch and finally Britishers. Most of the accommodations in Fort Kochi were residential and administrative buildings of Portuguese, Dutch and Brit times which have been now converted to either home stays or budget to expensive hotels. Hence, most of these hotels bear vintage look in Fort Kochi. The streets are flanked by several modest cafes selling cakes, pastries, coffee, cappuccino and the yummy wafers of different flavours such as vanilla, chocolate etc.

Taking a stroll in the Fort Kochi area, revealed around a dozen chinese fishing net lined on the banks of the sea. It was off-season so none of the fishermen were getting much of a catch in their nets. I decided to stroll on to the deck of one of the fishing nets and started clicking a group of fishermen tugging at their net. They were a group of 6 men, and in any other place I would not probably have strayed into a shed with 6 men. But these guys were really pleasant and happy to be pictured through my lens. So they asked me to join as well! And I said yes! After a lot of heave and ho, we managed to get the net up! Two of them helped me to tie the ropes as two others rushed to get a look at their loot.

Kumarakom - Kerala

Kumarakom is an exotic cluster of villages in Kerala that was created for tourists by claiming land from the Vembanad Lake that surrounds it. The landscape is covered by greenery consisting of shrubs, grass and bushes punctuated by pretty lilies and other flowers. Coconut trees line the horizon and complete the picture. This sleepy lake village is the abode of countless rare migratory birds, including the Siberian Stork and Waterfowls. Egrets, herons, ducks and kingfisher are also commonly seen here. The Vembanad Lake is home to fish, shrimp and prawn. Tourists frequent this destination for its backwater boathouse rides. Though expensive, the experience is worth it, especially if you have a good chef on board, who can make you delicacies of the local cuisine. Kumarakom also houses the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, which is a great place to walk around and for birdwatching. If you happen to be here during the festival of Onam, don't miss out on the boat races. Various kinds of boats such as Odi-Vallam, Churulan Vallam, Chundan Vallam and Kochu-odi Vallam are taken over by more than a thousand oarsmen. Canoe trips can be organised on request and are best enjoyed early in the morning or during the evenings.

This is a small town at approximately an hour from allapey. Its still untouched,still not as commercialized as allapey. Its backwaters and nature at its best. Small roads with greenery on both sides,few restaurants. You may not have a lot of things to do here. But you can just relax and enjoy the nature. Its more of a family /friends kinda place though. Definitely worth a visit even otherwise maybe for half a day or a days stop.

The two picturesque and majestic waterfalls, Athirapally and Vazhachal are located just five km apart, on the edge of the Sholayar forest ranges. The Athirapally falls join the Chalakudy river after plummeting down 80 ft. The cool spray that covers a large area near the falls makes Athirapally a scenic location. The picturesque Vazhachal waterfall is close to dense green forests and is a part of the Chalakudy river.

Kovalam - Kerala

If you were the one to pick 'beach person' in one of those magazine quizzes, then Kovalam is the place for you want to be. This beach town in Kerala is what every laid back traveller is looking for. Laze around at the Samudra Beach with a book or your music, where you wouldn't have to worry about tourists thronging the spot. The Lighthouse Beach comparatively remains a popular tourist destination, but the trip is oh so worth it, for it will provide you with a view of the mighty Arabian Sea like no other from the very top of the lighthouse, which at night sets the entire area intermittently ablaze with its sporadic beams. The beach also has a surf club from where one can also learn the water sport. After you are done failing and hurting yourself innumerable times, treat yourself to a rejuvenating massage at the aromatic and serenely ambient Santhigiri Ayurveda Heritage. Restaurants and cafes such as Fusion, Swiss Cafe, German Bakery and Curry Leaf are the some of the most popular ones to devour local and multinational cuisines.

Periyar Tiger Reserve - Kerala

As we think about Kumily and Thekkady, the images and the beautiful scenes of spice and coffee plantations come to our minds. The lush greenery, rippling waterfalls and the scenes of wild animals, birds and reptiles run through our minds. The Periyar tiger Reserve and Wildlife sanctuary is one of the best forest sanctuaries of the country. The sanctuary is spread over the whole Idukki District and is a very popular tourist attraction. The tigers are the main animals found here and is also a part of the Project Tiger. On your visit to Kumily, a visit to this reserve is a must for everyone.
A wilderness experience like never before- such is the thrill and excitement that engulfs you as you set out for the night patrolling trail in Periyar Tiger Reserve. Periyar is a part of Project Tiger and its dense jungles boast of a variety of wild species, especially the Nilgiri Langur and the Malabar Squirrel which are endemic to this region. Experience the life of guardians of our forests- the forest guards as you accompany them on foot during their night patrol duties for 3 hours. The experience is sure to leave you feeling proud for having participated in a forest conservation initiative!

Historically, Cochin (now Kochi) was a major trade centre for spices. Over the centuries, the port city was held by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. Cochin is well connected with all the major cities. Fort Cochin (the old town) has the country's oldest Jewish Synagogue, as well as a number of lovely boutique hotels. The Chinese fishing nets along the coastline are a sight not to be missed.

A picturesque beach, located on the north-end of the Vypeen Island is ideal for swimming. Lined with luscious green coconut groves and paddy fields, this sandy beach is a unique combination of the sea and the backwaters, studded with seashells of various hues and shapes. Dolphins are occasionally seen here. Thick coconut groves and Chinese fishing nets on the waterfront are added attractions. I had my lunch from a restaurant near cherrai beach, if you are a seafood lover u will get lots of restaurants serving good sea food near by the beach. Then after having lunch went to munambam beach.

It was a very long drive from the ferry stop to the beach, and we drove through a road with no other car on it. I grew vigilant and kept my phone in my hand just in case I needed to make an emergency call. But this path was much more green than any other part of Kochi, and we passed through several backwaters, and I really enjoyed the whole drive. To save on car parking charges my driver dropped me off on one end of the beach, which was a bit remote. All I could see was two fishermen tending to their boats and net. It took me some time to reach the crowded section of the beach.

Kottayam - Kerala

In God’s own country is the relatively larger city of Kottayam, famous for being the trade centre of rubber, commercial crops and spices. More than being a tourist attraction, this city is the gateway to the high ranges of central Kerala, Wagamon and Elaveezha Poonchira. It is also conveniently located between the ghats and the backwaters, providing easy access to both as well as the best of both worlds! Among the many places to visit here, Marmala is a wonderful option for its magnificent waterfalls and absolutely breathtaking beauty. The Poonjar Palace, on the other hand, is a testimony to the glorious past of Kottayam. From an enormous collection of antiques to exquisite furniture, everything is preserved in this former home of the royal family. The palace protects even the tiniest of items such as jewel boxes, lamps, sculptures of Nataraja, palm-leaf engravings and grain measures. Pathiramanal, fondly known as the 'sands of midnight' is small island on the backwaters of Alappuzha. Sparking in natural beauty, the reflection of the moonlight on the white sand of the island is a sight to behold. Vembanad Lake is also a good option to spend a day on the coconut-fringed backwaters enjoying a leisurely meal!

Located about 6 km away from the Bekal Fort, this is one of the cleanest and unpolluted beahes of the region. If you are the one who prefers seclusion more than the crowd, this should be a perfect beach for you over the rest of the beaches. This place is however becoming a favourite location for tourist with every passing day the Kodi Cliff nearby serves as a watchpoint for tourists. From here you can get awesome views of the Arabian Sea and the surroundings too. The views of the Pallikunnam Temple, which is about 2 km away can also be enjoyed from this cliff. Besides, you can also enhoy small picnics and lazy strolls along the beach.

Thiruvananthapuram - Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram still goes by its colonial name, Trivandrum. Located on the south-western tip of India, this city is home to a number of temples, wooded highlands and idyllic beaches. Even though this city is mostly used a pit stop by Varkala- and Kovalam-bound travellers, it is worth exploring for a day or two. Besides its natural landscape, the various Ayurvedic treatment centres here attract people from across the country and world. Trivandrum is considered one of the greenest cities of India. Akkulam, on the banks of Akkulam Lake, is a scenic picnic spot perfect for a relaxing day out. Traditional boat houses here also offer lodging options. The palaces of Kowdiar, Kuthiramalika, Padmanabhapuram and Kanakakkunnu are specimens of rare craftsmanship. The Napier Museum offers an insight into the rich cultural heritage of Kerala with its bronze idols and ivory carvings. The influence of the colonial era in the form of gothic styled architecture is apparent. The beaches of Varkala, Kovalam, Hawa and Shanghumukham, all nearby, are excellent spots to unwind. With its pleasant blue skies, rivers merging into the sea and meandering backwaters, Thiruvananthapuram is a delight for wanderers.

Yes, it’s India’s longest lake and the largest in incredible Kerala, but the wonders of relaxing by this lake and enjoying that slow fire near your feet is something else. The houseboats and snake race are the major attractions on Vembanad Lake. The lake makes an enchanting picnic spot and provides house boat stays, fishing and sightseeing experiences.

Vagamon - Kerala

Vagamon is an untouched land in the heavenly state of Kerala, located far away from the madding crowd. The sleepy hill station will win your heart with its deep valleys, widely-stretching green meadows, dense pine forests, tea estates and waterfalls. In fact, the National Geographic Traveler has listed Vagamon as the '50 most attractive places to visit in India’. The drive to this hill station is extraordinary, to say the least. The winding road cut through solid rock lined with pine forests, takes you through lush green hills, with the plains below running along with you. The landscape here is mostly hilly with its green meadows filled with a wide variety of flowers and orchids. Vagamon offers opportunities for various adventure activities such as trekking, paragliding, mountaineering and rock climbing. An interesting place to visit here is the Indo-Swiss Project Dairy Farms, located on Kurisumala Hill. The farm is run by monks and you need special permission to go inside. Kottayam is the closest railway station from here and Cochin International Airport is the nearest airport.

Granddad used to say that Vagamon cannot be read about, but only experienced! And, experience it, I did. I rode up to the velvet greens and mountain breeze of Vagamon for a perfect Paragliding opportunity amidst the hills. As if the view wasn’t enough, my landing spot brought out an emotional reaction that even I hadn’t expected. As I glided my way down, the winds carrying my flight brought back the essence of my granddad, of my ancestry, of my roots. I landed on a nice green hill spot, took off my shoes, and just closed my eyes, ready to be drowned in the essence of this beautiful landscape.

From the Cardamom Hills of Thekkady, you'll pedal your way to the tea gardens of Vagamon, via the rubber plantations. Though a hilly ride, the cool weather keeps your ride smooth. An enchanting hill station, you can even choose to relax or indulge in some adventure activities like paragliding or just explore some of nature's trails! The Summer Sand Resort is an eco-friendly resort built in the middle of the plush greens of Vagamon, where we'll stay for a night. Along with the moon's reflection in the crystal waters of the lake, you'll also enjoy sights such as the fisherman amidst their activities and the waves hitting the shores, making harmony with the breeze at midnight.

Marine Drive A stroll along the long tree-lined coastal pathway that lines the backwater is well worth the time spent, especially late afternoon or dusk. The bustling backwaters, dotted with fishing boats, speedboats, ships, tankers and passenger boats, can be observed from this walkway that lines the coast.

Eravikulam National Park - Kerala

This national park is the breathtaking home of a plethora of precious flora and fauna, and lies along the Western Ghats. Considered the magnum opus of Kerala, the park provides magnificent panoramic views of tea plantations and rolling hills blanketed in mist. The grasslands protect the endangered Nilgiri Tahr and harbour several other species of animals, birds and butterflies, including a new species of frog that was discovered recently. Eravikulam park becomes a sought after destination when the hill slopes get veiled by a carpet of blue, a miraculous phenomena caused by the flowering of Neelakurinji, which blooms only once in 12 years. Anamudi, translating to elephant's forehead and located within the park, is the highest peak of South India and its might and height of 8,842 ft can be enjoyed from a distance at Rajamala, from where the endangered Nilgiri Tahr can also be observed. The park provides a number of safaris for convenient and safe tourism around the park. The Kurinji Trail, which follows through misty tracks of protected animals and flowery grasslands, is a must for trekking lovers. Another famous but charming spot is the Lakkom Waterfalls, which provide an enchanting view along with an eco-shop cafeteria to eat at. Close to these falls is a log house, which offers comfortable accommodation with complimentary food and the much desired solitude and peace amidst the lap of nature.

I absolutely love animals in all shapes, sizes and forms. So, when I got to know there was a National Park that was so beautifully conserving Nilgiri Tahr [an endangered species of mountain goat], I wanted to be here. This is Eravikulam National Park. We were told that the place would be closed during early months of the year since it is calving time of the Tahr. Once again, there is a bit of trek involved. Ensure you go early in the morning to this place to buy ticket. As early as 6.30-7.00 am. This is the Nilgiri Tahr. I had to zoom and zoom to get a shot of this guy. It felt as if he was somewhere up in the skies !

The adventure here seems to be travelling in the rickety buses up narrow winding mud paths to reach the abode of the Nilgiri Tahr rather than sharing space with dangerous wild animals. A short trek from the bus stop will lead you to the destination, you can view waterfalls and tea bushes that float like broccoli in the thick mist. The Tahr seemed quite elusive when we made a trip there but the rolling hills were bursting with the purple of the neelakurinji flower – which bloom once every 12 years. P.S: Make sure you arrive there early in the morning, as the lines do tend to get very long.

Thrissur - Kerala

Thrissur, the land of temples, is one of the most visited cities in Kerala. The waterfalls and the scenic temples here offer one a mix of nature, history and culture. Among the most significant temples, the Vadakummnathan temple is a must visit. The temple is slightly orthodox and allows only Hindus to enter. The temple is known for its antique murals and paintings and even if you aren't spiritual, do visit the temple for its beauty and brilliant architecture. Another stunning spot in Thrissur is the Athirappilly Waterfalls. The space around the waterfalls is the perfect picnic spot allowing you an unobstructed view of the gushing waters. Though, like all waterfalls, this one is in all its glory during monsoons, but you can still spend a day here irrespective of the season. Among other important temples, Vadakkunnathan Temple, Thiruvambadi Krishna Shrine and Triprayar Sri Rama Temple are a must visit. A day in Thrissur is more than enough to explore the city and if you have plans to head to the popular backwaters, let Thrissur be a short stop.
This humble district is finding its way on most Kerala Itineraries owning to its splendid display of culture and festivals that form a highlight of the trip.

Post breakfast and a stopover at a petrol pump, I headed off to see my late grandma’s place in Thrissur. With the past two days spent in the lap of greenery and serenity, I didn’t much enjoy the hustle-bustle that came from what had become a grand city in southern India, yet I was in awe of its technology parks and religious diversity! On one side, I could kneel to pray at the Lady of Dolors Basilica, Palayur Church and the Lourdes Cathedral, and on the other hand, I bowed down to offer prayers at the Cheraman Juma Masjid, Vadakumnathan Temple and Thiruvambadi Temple. The next morning, with a half-day stopover at the ancient pilgrim center of Guruvayoor, I headed off for a ride through the Athirapally & Vazhachal Waterfalls.

Bekal Beach - Kerala

This is a shallow beach just by the Bekal Fort and is the one which has been developed by the Tourism Department over here. This is now an exotic location for tourists and also the most visited place in Kasaragod. There are all sorts of facilities here including waste bins and toilets. There is a children's park for the little ones to enjoy and there are also shady areas and tree houses for you to rest. To make the beach even more beautiful two laterite statues of Theyyam have been built here by artists from Neelambur too. Apart from these facilities, the beach is very nicely lit up during the evenings to make it look beautiful as well as to let the tourists enjoy the place even during the hours after sunset.
Bekal's beach is still pretty much untouched and unexplored. It is a new entry on the list of places to visit in Kerala and is growing quickly. The most famous aspect of Bekal would be its fort, which is also known to be the oldest fort anywhere in Kerala. There are options such as exploring the fort, driving through thick coconut groves and even boating across the serene backwaters. On crossing these backwaters, one will witness the visual splendour of the beach. Since the beach and the fort are almost adjoined, the fort also provides a majestic view of the sea. This is also a popular place of shooting for Bollywood movies.

An overcrowded beach with vendors and tourists all around is very common in India but Bekal beach is very different from from all those beaches. It is quiet, serene and absolutely clean. If you are lucky, you might even spot a dolphin swimming in the sea. We started walking along the shore and after 1 km, you will spot uduma fishing village with multi-colored fishing boats. The Uduma fishing village is also marked by an artificial rock bund created to prevent sea erosion wiping out the village. Climb over the embankment and walk until the village is behind you. The embankment merges with the beach soon after. Half hour later reach the rocky outcrops that mark the end of the Bekal beach.Cross the rocky outcrop to reach Kappil beach.

Kovalam Beach - Kerala

One of the must visit beaches of the country, the serenity will call you to this place and the peace will make you stay
Shivali Singh

138 Followers, 7 Reviews


Kovalam beach is a favourite with tourists for swimming in the sea. There are coast guards around who keep a watchful eye. The beach is advertised as 'jelly fish Free' on the various travel sites. So it was a surprise to find large number of purple jellyfish being washed onto the shore by the waves. The coast guards assured us they are dead and harmless. The fishermen throw them out when they get caught in their nets. It seems there is a migration of jelly fish for about a fortnight in October, when the sea gets foamy with the gelatine in the jelly fish. Kovalam beach never fails to arouse curiosity!

Trivandrum - Kerala

Capital city of the state. A must visit. It was 4-5 hrs journey. We reached late night. It was really tiring to find a good place at such an odd hour. Time was 2.30 am, we started searching but it was not worth it. I was not feeling good. I was about to burst out but somehow I controlled myself. That night was really a nightmare. 5 adults on one bed and moreover a 3rd grade room and mosquitoes are adding pleasure to it. I have never thought that something like this could happen but it did happen. At 6am, I woke up and went out to book a cab for Kovalam beach. We reached Kovalam at night booked the hotel and slept. Places to see: Zoo, Kovalam Beach, Travancore Palace and Museum and lot of temples.

Ambalapuzha Sree Krishna Temple - Kerala

After getting off from the houseboat, we set off on the road to the famous Sree Krishna Temple at Ambalapuuzha, a small town located 14 kms south of Alleppey. After spending couple of hours in the temple complex with the supreme deity, and few minutes having a photoshoot with the temple elephant which irritated the jumbo towards the end, we bought some Kerala sarees and dress material for our loved ones. Then, resumed our journey 5 kms west of Ambalappuzha to a lesser known place called as Karumadikkuttan.

Alleppey Beach - Kerala

Also known as the 'Venice of the East', this beach is the main one of the city and known for the boat rides and entertainment on the bridge. There is also a century old lighthouse and the coir industry flourishes here. Presently, one of the most popular places for picnic by tourists, the Alleppey Beach is just beautiful. It is a strange fact how even after so many people coming here, the beach remains so clean but it is so. The pier here is a 137 year old one and the Kettuvallam boats are worth taking a ride here. Kettuvalams are very old types of rice carrying boats and the name came down from the fact that the boats were made by only tying knots of coir here.In the backwaters areas, the Kettuvalams are the renovated ones, but in the beach part these are absolutely authentic. houseboat cruises are also popular here.
From Mannarasala, it took us about 45 mins to 1 hour to reach back in Alleppey. Enroute we spent some time in a lonely 'unknown' beach located some half an hour before Alleppey. Alleppey beach was somewhat crowded with people from all walks of life gathered to spend the evening time with family & friends, as the Sun was setting behind the vast limitless expanse of the Arabian Sea. We spent some joyful time with each of us taking turns for our personal photoshoots and playing with the sea waves. Before wrapping up the trip to Alleppey, last one thing attracted my attention which was a broken, dilapidated iron bridge that stretched only by few hundred metres into the sea. I took some snaps of the bridge as addition to my travelogue. From the beach, we stratight away headed to the Alleppey bus stand to reach our next destination in Kerala , 60 kms north of Alleppey. ... Guess which one ?????

Backwater Trips - Kerala

The backwaters of Kerala are the premiere attraction here and Alappuzha has a lot of these beautiful attraction. As a tourist, one thing which you should never miss is an overnight cruise from Alappuzha to Alappuzha. A romantic cruise along the backwaters of Alappuzha is the most beautiful feeling you can enjoy. The romantic Punnamada and Vattakayal Lake look even more charming in the dark. You will then be taken to visit the Champakkulam Church and the ancestra havara Bhavan. Kottayan, Mankotta and Alamkadavu are other important attractions along with the sound of migratory water birds and the sight of water lilies blooming.
This is a must do if you are in allapey. Its totally worth it. Take the canoe(small country boat) if you need a true experience of the life in the backwaters. I took a full day trip(cost me Rs (900 with breakfast and lunch). I was travelling with others in my stay. The boar goes through small villages and streams and few of the views are just spectacular. The numerous tiny bridges or sight of pampa river and the tiny islands which have just 2 to 3 houses or just he view of the backwaters and the land with all the coconut trees. This is just brilliant.

Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica - Kerala

Built in 1505 by the Portuguese, this place happens to be the oldest church in India and a heritage site in all of Kerala. The interiors are done in an Indi-Gothic style and the main altar was painted by a famous Italian painter called Antonio Moscheni. The place was given the status of a cathedral by Pope John Paul IV in the year 1558. This church was the brainchild of Dom Francisco De Almeida in 1505 who was the first Portuguese Viceroy. He sought permission from the King of Kochi and thus the church was built. It gets its name from the date 3rd May 1505 when the foundation stone was laid and that this day happened to be celebrated as ‘the invention of the cross.’
The original church, situated in Fort Kochi, was built by the Portuguese in 1505 and named as a cathedral in 1558. The British colonists destroyed the cathedral in 1795. The current structure was built in 1905 and raised to the status of a basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1984.

You don't need an itinerary for this one since any place you head to is an adventure in itself, though for the sake of clarity, Chembra Peak, Soochippara Water falls and Sunrise Valley are spots you simply can't miss. Wayand is also an exporter of cardamom, pepper, vanilla, coffee and pepper. You may catch a glimpse of coffee plantation and spice fields while exploring this lovely city. Do include Kuruva Island in your itinerary for its unreal beauty. Situated alongside Kabani river, it's the ideal picnic spot and there is no better way to spend your day in Wayanad than enjoying the bliss here. For foodies, Wayand is a delectable surprise and if you are in the mood to experiment, this is a great place to start. As for a place to stay, Wayand has recently become home to boutique hotels and guesthouses that will definitely add to your holiday experience.
Wayanad District came into existence on 1st November, 1980 as the 12th District of Kerala consisting of Mananthavady, Sulthanbathery and Vythiri Taluks. The name Wayanad is derived from Vayal Nadu which means the land of paddy fields. It is a picturesque plateau situated at a height between 700 meters and 2100 meters above the mean sea level nested among the mountains of the Western Ghats on the Eastern portion of North Kerala and on the sides of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka States.

Bekal Fort - Kerala

Spreading over forty acres, the fort has massive walls about 12 meters in height built of local laterite stones. The headland on which it is situated runs into the sea with fine bay towards the south. The site was so well selected to give a complete view of the area and also the laterite bedrock was very well utilized to strengthen the fort. It is a large fort, the wall and ramparts on the sea side being strong and interspersed by the bastions with opening for guns. The other interesting discovery was the mint house (Huzur) and a palace complex of the medieval period. Remains of Darbar hall and temple complex were also brought to light during the excavation.

Once in Kasargod ,you need to take other bus to reach the fort which will take about 20 mins. After the long and tiring journey, I finally reached the place and this place is beyond BEAUTIFUL. There are many local vendors in front of the fort selling coconut water ,pineapple ,watermelon and faluda. Dont miss the pineapple with honey, It's delicious.To enter the fort, you need to buy a ticket costing about 5 rs( for Indians). The fort is spread over forty acres and is well maintained by archeological survey of India. If your idea of fort is ruins, writing across the walls and litter all around, you will be surprised. This is one of the cleanest and well maintained fort in India.In fact a part of the fort is converted into Garden.Some important features of the fort are the water tank with its flight of steps. A tunnel in the fort which opens towards the south and the broad wide steps leading to the bastions.The bastions rise to a great height and offers clear views of nearby places like Pallikare, Kanhagad, Kottikulam, Uduma and others. The fort was built solely for defence purposes, unlike other Indian forts which also had the residence of the royalty. Holes in the walls and on the bastions helped keep the enemy at bay.There is a flight of steps leading to the bastion on the extreme right of the fort. We climbed down the gaps in the rocks to reach Bekal beach.

It is the largest such temple in Kerala.

Sree Nagaraja Temple at Mannarasala attracts devotees of serpents (called as Nagaraja in devotion) in hundreds from every corner of the state and also from several parts of the country. We learned from the temple priests that usually women seeking fertility come to worship here, and upon the birth of their child they again come to hold thanksgiving ceremonies, often bringing new snake images as offerings. The Mannarasala Temple has over 30,000 images of snakes along the paths and among the trees, and is the largest such temple in Kerala. Finally, we headed back to Alleppey which was then around 35 kms up north from Mannarasala

Parumala Church - Kerala

Parumala is an extremely popular - so popular that the old one had to be remodelled to fit in more people. It’s also the church where St. Gregorios, commonly called Parumala Thirumeni by most people in Kerala, is entombed. It’s a huge church and has been renovated recently, though many people feel its old charm has been lost. However, to really feel what this church is all about, go during the Ormaperunnal – like an annual feast or festival, held in early November every year. It’s a huge occasion and it will be jam-packed, but it’s a real celebration. But a lot of people will tell you that the old church was more charming.

Ambalapuzha - Kerala

Very well known for the popular Shree Krishna Temple, Ambalapuzha is a small town in Kerala and sees visitors from all across the country. Though the town doesn't offer much to visitors, the temple here more than makes up for the lack of other touristy spots. The Krishna Temple is situated alongside a small pond and is famous for its delicious prasad, payasam. The dish is made of rice and milk is perhaps the best in the southern part of the country. In earlier times, human sacrifice used to take place here but now the sacrifice is restricted to animals. The temple is also one of the very few temples in the country where Pallipana is performed by sorcerers annually. Ladies, do remember to wear a sari or lehenga when you are visiting the temple or else you will not be allowed. The language spoken in the temple is Malayalam and if you'd like to understand what is happening, it's best to request a local to help. Other than the temple, there is nothing much to explore in Ambalapuzha and you can use this town as a stop on your holiday itinerary rather than making it your entire vacation destination.
There are more famous, grander temples in Kerala, but Ambalappuzha is in a song that almost everybody in Kerala would hum along to if you played it. The town is in the Alapuzha district. The Sri Krishna temple is where the idol of Krishna from the much more famous Guruvayoor Temple was brought for safekeeping in 1789. Extra incentive to visit: the paal payasam (milk pudding/kheer) at the temple is very famous, both for the story behind it and for how awesome it is. If that isn’t enough either, Alapuzha has some extremely nice beaches and the backwaters are right there.

Karumadikkuttan - Kerala

Karumadikkuttan has one of the rarest archaeological artifacts as ancient as 10th Century AD which is a half broken Buddha statue in meditation pose, carved out of black stone. Though the notice board erected by Archaeological Survey of India at the site warns of severe punishment by law against man made damage to the sculpture or any theft from the site, it was quite evident that the local smugglers have least bothered about it and have indulged in trafficking of several other historical artifacts nearby and have caused serere damage to the Buddha statute itself to meet their vested business interests. Anyways, we continued on our trip 21 kms furthre south of Karumadikkuttan, to a place called as Mannarasala famous for its temple dedicated to serpents.

The church is differently styled from other churches you generally see. Its supposed to be one of the oldest churches in south India though. Maybe its worth a visit if you have time.Bus is the best mode of transport since its a little far from the main town.

Sabarimala is located in Kerala and is one of the most significant Hindu pilgrim centres. Though the main temple, Sabarimala Sree Dharma Sastha Temple, doesn't hold any restrictions for visiting the temple and people from any caste, creed or religion are allowed in the temple, it mostly sees Hindus devotees. The temple is located on top of a hill and is not open throughout the year. It is open only during the days of Mandalapooja, Makaravilakku and Chitra Vishu and one has to go through a rigorous fast of 41 days before embarking on a journey to the temple. There are some other rules to follow before setting out on a journey to the temple and it's best to research a little bit before heading out. There are umpteen hotels at the site of the temple and finding a place to stay here is not a hassle at all.

Changanassery - Kerala

Boasting of a culturally rich history, this small town close to Kottayam is home to numerous temples. Changanassery is laidback and seems quite happy with where it is and there is no rush to do anything. The matter of daily business is taken very lightly but not casually, and it's actually quite a delight to escape the hustle and bustle of cities. There are many temples here that deserve a visit. Among the more notable ones are Perunna Subramanyaswami Temple, Vazhappally Temple and Thrikodithanam Temple. Thrikodithanam Mahavishnu Temple is one of the five temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu and connected to the Pandava brothers. It is one of the most sacred temples in Kottayam and the most visited. Besides the temples, there is not much to explore here and it's best not to spend more than a day here unless this is where you are staying. If you are staying here, you can travel outside the city to explore other touristy spots.
Changanacherry, a town in Kottayam district of Kerala is located between Kottayam and Thiruvalla townships. It is known as the gateway to the high ranges and the backwaters of Kuttanad. In the past, the region was known as Anchu Vilakkinta Pattanam, which in local language means ‘Town of five fire lamps.’ It once formed the northern boundary of the erstwhile princely state of Travancore.

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary - Kerala

We have experienced beaches, temples, culture etc. Now it was time to do something exciting. So we were there. We reached there around 7pm same day. Nothing can be done, so we went off to sleep. It was really cold out there. Things to do: Sanctuary, Coffee Plantations, State Border, Suicide point, Elephant Safari and lots of temples. Next day was the best. I started with jogging in the early morning. Then we hired a car to see all the places nearby. But first we went inside the forest to check the set up. We were here to do night walking in Jungle. But something went really wrong. In excitement I broke the soft tissue of my right leg and was not able to walk. I was really disappointed and it was paining so hard that I thought I will die soon. But our driver saved my life. He took us to some Ayurvedic doctor and guess what it really worked out! How was the treatment He put some hot oil on the area where it was paining. I was shouting like as if I was going to abuse (later on my friends told me). They were holding my both hands and legs. I was shouting, abusing but they didn’t leave me. Then after 1 hour it was all done. Doctor told me to go to hotel and sleep. Then I told my friends don’t worry everything will be fine but you guys don’t stop enjoying. Doctor came in the evening. He gave medicine and told me not to walk, you need a complete rest otherwise your upcoming would be hampered. I cancelled my ticket to Night Walking in Jungle. I was sleeping but then also I was feeling the pain and suddenly I was waking up again and again. It was a nightmare. 9th day I was able to walk but very slowly. Somehow after so much of effort it worked out. Now we were heading towards our next destination and more over New State- Tamil Nadu. It was a hill station. Only this was left and here we are – At Kodaikanal. I hate mountains but since it was my first visit to any hill station in South, I Went.

Kavalam - Kerala

Kavalam is a village in Kuttanadu, Kerala state, India. It is located on the borders of Alapuzha and Kottayam districts, on the banks of Vembanad Lake. The Pampa river flows through the village to merge into the famed Vembanad Lake. Its natural scenic beauty is legendary and has been used by many filmmakers. Relatively untouched by modernity, Kavalam is a green haven. Interspersed with the kayals (canals) and lakes, this belly of Kerala is serene. The lakes and kayals are filled with flocks of ducks, and in summer the rice paddies of Kuttanad turn golden. With a longtime history behind it, Kavalam is part of Kerala's cultural folklore. A decade back, this sleepy village was accessible only by the lake boats provided by the government of Kerala. As in many other remote parts of Kerala, this non-accessibility gave Kavalam a laidback atmosphere. The place is now accessible from Alleppey, Kottayam and Changanacherry by road. What makes Kavalam unique is its vast "watery junction" that joins five canals at one place unlike other road junctions — a rare sight indeed!

You too get a chance to venture waterside markets to handpick fresh sea food ingredients such as Pamphlets, Tiger Prawns etc., which the on board cook prepares for you. The overall experience, as far as food is concerned, was truly splendid.

Allepey Houseboat Cruise - Kerala

This is a must experience if you happen to travel in Kerala. We took a day cruise option . You can even opt for full day cruise which includes night stay as well. Our houseboat was well equipped with bedrooms,washrooms,upperdeck,kitchen etc. We enjoyed a wholesome meal onboard which was prepared the cruise crew. The crew bought all the groceries before we started . They prepared the meals while we were lazing around. We witnessed beautiful views of paddy fields, other houseboats on the backwaters, the villages on the banks and how the local people lead their lives. Their lives are so different from ours. I saw many boats parked outside the houses of the villagers. I came across many boats with children as they were returning from school. The local women and the children were rowing their boats so effortlessly. Apart from the local life, you get to witness nature's best views . You might also be lucky to spot various birds flying over the lakes. Overall, this is a must experience which everyone must try atleast once in their lives. Few tips before you take a houseboat:- 1) Check out at least 3-4 boats before you agree to one. There is lots of variety present in Allepey 2) The rates are highly negotiable. So look out for the best deal 3) Choose a houseboat with an upper deck option. It is amazing to lounge around on the upper deck and watch the picturesque views. 4) If you dont have much time for a half day/full day cruise you can opt houseboats on hourly basis. The rates vary between 1000-1500/- per hour.

These grasslands are covered in green velvet if u notice them well. You can just lie down there and take in that fresh air and enjoy the spell bound beauty of the nature there. The cool breeze are bound to take all your tensions and stress in the rat - race of the daily life. If you are mad about trekking these meadows are bound to excite you. It was really nice to have a look at the tea plantations that looks like green carpet rolled out for you. The meadows are directly accessible from the road. The misty air will sooth your mind give you some quality time in the lap of nature. Did I tell you that this place is not just owned by meadows but frothing waterfalls and rippling brooks that always hurry down from the rocks. You can have a visual of fine eucalyptus plantations down the hill along with the tree estates. The roads are zig - zag measuring which gives you closer look at the tea plantations. In all ways this a nature treat for you.

Wagamon - Kerala

The journey to Wagamon, through the smooth highway, with majestic mountains and deep ravines on your side is an overwhelming experience. Driving through the sharp curves of the meandering rock-hewn roads uphill, with deep gorges on the turns, dangerously seducing, is exhilarating. Wagamon has many incredible spots that are breathtaking. My favourite has always been the monastery and the pastoral farms.

Vasundhara Sarovar Premiere - Kerala

We were here for 2 days. This place is like a mini kerala in itself. It is the perfect amalgamation of luxury and kerala culture.It is located very strategically in Vayalar,kerala which is comparatively nearer to the Kochi airport as compared to other resorts . It is hardly 7-8 kms from Cherthala railway station as well. I was overwhelmed looking at the lush greenery and maintainence of the resort. The staff was very friendly and their services were incredible. The resort contains variety of rooms which includes the traditional heritage villas which directly open into the mighty Vembanaad lake and the floating cottages which open in their own artificially maintained lake. The food includes variety in kerala cuisine as well along with the other regular options. Every evening they have their own mini cruise which takes you over the waters of the vembanaad lake. I used to simply laze around in the hammock in the evenings which is just next to the lake. They also have a tea/coffee shop called "chaikada" where they serve complementary tea,coffee and snacks. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here

Devikulam - Kerala

Devikulam is a hill station located in the southern state of Kerala. A nature lover's paradise, Devikulam is sure to charm you with its green pastures, sparkling lakes and tea gardens. Perhaps the most famous tourist destination here would be the Devi Lake. It is believed that Sita, the wife of Lord Rama bathed in this spring and since then this lake is hailed as a site of holy pilgrimage. Endowed with the bounty of flowing waters, Devikulam also houses the Pallivasal and Thoovanam Falls. In contrast to each other, the Pallivasal falls roll gently off the surface of rocks while the Thoovanam Falls rush at a great speed. Devikulam also has a wide variety of tea plantations and spice gardens sprinkled all about, and the refreshingly delicious aroma that hangs around in the air is an olfactory delight. The nearest railway stations to Devikulam are located in Kochi and Kottayam. Buses, taxis and private cars carry passengers into Devikulum quite conveniently too.
I would recommend staying in Devikulam which is about 5km away and 500ft above Munnar town. It’s got some beautiful home-stay options, lush green tea-estates and cool mountain breeze.

Vypin Island - Kerala

Vypin Island is criss crossed by canals. Though the area nearer to mainland is now waiting to see a boom in construction of multi storey buildings, the island and its beaches still have a serenity and beauty which is becoming rarer by the day. Standing in front of a noisy school on the bank of the backwaters, one could see a school of dolphins popping in and out while a few fishermen were busy catching fish, standing right on the bank. Dolphins and fish seem to move together and the alert fishermen lower the Chinese nets into the water to pick up whatever fish can be netted. Not a very effiecient way, but then interesting to watch.

Edakkal Caves - Kerala

The caves.. yeah! Stony and slippery.. A small adventurous uphill walk(or rather climb) which will make you almost believe that you cant make it to the top of the cave! The incessant rainfall was discouraging, also a bit foggy which was obfuscating our view. Nevertheless, we marched to the caves highest point. Moving up was tedious while moving down was also enjoyable in a way that we thought we could just roll down the cliff, over the edge and down, down, down.. Shouldn't be a miss!

Meenmutty Falls - Kerala

We lunched at a near-by Mallu Mess (Kerala fish curry meals with fish fry), before we headed out to Meenmutty Waterfalls. This one is nestled deep in the woods and you would need to trek through the a dense hill for about a km or more. We were amazed at the force of water. There is a spot where you can stand to experience a bit of that force on you. Must try 

Thottada Beach - Kerala

This beach is where the river meets the sea and thus is the most beautiful place to visit in Kannur. The clean sands and foamy white waters of the sea are mesmerizing and lovely to relax. You can also enjoy a lazy, romantic walk along the beach or even arrange for a romantic date or a family picnic here. The holiday resorts line up the shores and give very attractive views of the seas and beyond. The swaying casuarinas and palms provide for the perfect green content. This place is the most recommended on your visit to the place.
Nestled amidst the coconut groves of the Thottada beach on the shores of a river bed and a small river is the home of a lovely couple Rosy and Nazir.

Comes after the beaches, this is a natural harbour separated from the Kannur or St. Angelo's Fort. The Arakkal Palace is another place to visit. Both of these are the evidences of Portuguese conquests but are now completely deserted. The Arakkal Palace belonged to the Ali Raja Royal family which is till now the only native royal family pf Kerala. The palace is still owned by the royal family and is now turned into a museum which is open to the public for a nominal entry fee. Other than that this place is also good for picnics and as a watch point from where you can enjoy awesome views.
A natural fishing harbor. On one side of the bay is Fort St. Angelo, built by the Portuguese in the 15th century and the other side is the Arakkal Palace.The bay was famous during the Kolathiri's regime as a commercial harbour that linked Kolathunadu with Lakshadweep and foreign countries, in imports.

Kannur - Kerala

Need a dose of vitamin sea? This city in the North Malabar region of Kerala can surely take care of that, with its serene beaches, such as Payyambalam Beach, Baby Beach, Muzhappilangad Beach (the only drive-in beach of Kerala) and the comparatively quiet and remote Thottada beach. Another beach-y wonder is Dharmadam, where an island is only a short walk away. The 16th century Fort, St. Angelos and the Tellicherry Fort are also some of the main attractions of this coastal town. Nature lovers will dote over Parassinikkadavu Snake Park, where an array of reptile species can be seen and learnt about, especially through a live show where trained personnel dauntlessly play and interact with a variety of snakes such as cobras and vipers. On the same lines, Aralam Wildlife Sanctuary is another must visit, along with the Munderi Kadavu Bird Sanctuary for a peaceful time amidst 'the wild ones'. Some renowned, archaic but beautiful places of worship are St. John's Angelican Church, Rajarajeshwara Temple and Annapoorneshwari Temple. If your mind still wanders off to the hills, then head off to the picturesque hill station of Paithalmala, a drive to which is just as mesmerizing as the location itself. Some more places to visit are the Alakapuri waterfalls and the Arakkal museum, which gives an interesting insight into Kerala's only muslim royal family and their lifestyle. Kannur is a sight to behold during the month of February when the ritualistic Theyyam is celebrated with vibrant ritualistic song, dance and drama performances. Places such as Randhaal, MVK Restaurant, Sahib's Grill Kitchen and Onakkan Bharathi are popular for mouthwatering local, Indian and international dishes. Kannur is well-connected through various city buses and its railway station is a major stop for most trains.
It was once a sleepy town but with the influx of Dubai funds into the town therefore there is much more happening in the town. Coastal areas of kannur, still remain calm and serene and virgin enough for a break that i would want to take more often.

The Thirakkal as well as the Kolathiri kings are the earliest inhabitants of this beautiful structures. It was at that time a common habit of royals and kings to fortify their royal enclosure or palace to defend it from the enemys. The stronger the structure of a fort is, the better it is always. Later, when excavations have been made here in the fort, a number of coins and other items have been found which bring out the clear influence of the Mysore Sultans here. Later came the British rulers and then started a new Era in the Economical and social structure of the region. At present, the Bekal Fort is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Kerala and also a known place where directors shoot movies and ads. Also, the Tourism Department has put this place as one of the five best tourist attractions here and special care is taken of this.
This one's a little far off, but worth a visit. Spreading over 40 acres, it is the largest Fort in Kerala. This fort was not an administrative center as many other forts in India, but was highly equipped with the best designs and technology. It's one of the rare forts that has an observatory, which was used to track enemy movements. Today, it is used to get a nice view of the nearby villages. The fort is around 300 years old and is situated in the backdrop of the Arabian sea. It was built by Tipu Sultan as a defense strategy and is today converted into a tourism spot by the government. It is pretty scenic with many Bollywood songs being shot there.
