Tripoto
13th Nov 2016

It’s the most amazing travel destination because it has everything from serene beaches to scenic hills, from tea & spice plantations to dense forests & calm backwaters. It’s located on the Malabar Coast, South India.

We started our journey from 13 Nov 2016 via Thiruvananthapuram Rajdhani express and reached on 14 Nov 2016 at some around 11:30pm in Thrissur.

One of the famous temples in South India.

This is dedicated to Lord Krishna and had breakfast near local south Indian restaurant having Masala dosa and throat calming tea.

Then we go back to our hotels for rest as we were so tired of travelling from all the way Delhi to Kerala.

In the evening we visited Thriprayar temple, Shree Rama temple which is located in Thrissur district only.

And then we had fun eating pineapples with pinch of red chilli powder (It tastes really amazing, I don’t think eating pineapples with chilli powder before) and ice creams on the beach.

It’s really an amazing experience to explore the forest on elephant we clicked and posed. And one of the things impressed me the most there when the Elephant rider said he is pursuing an English honors and work here as a part time worker.
