We have college trips every year & this year it was way down south! :)

Kerala is breathtakingly amazing place with beautiful beaches, lush, green hills, backwaters, houseboats and yummy, brackish, water fish called Karimeen.

Once you reach god's own country you should definitely go to Munnar. It's a hill station in Kerela, with tea and spice gardens all around. We started our trip from Ernakulam (Kochi). After that, we headed for Munnar. Alleppy was the next destination. It's famous for its houseboats & let me tell you, being on the houseboat was one of the most fabulous experiences I had. The next day, we headed to Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, the meeting spot for the three river bodies, Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal & Indian Ocean. It's the southernmost point of India. The water was so clean & free of all polluted ailments there. Our last stop was Madurai in Tamil Nadu, where we visited the famous Meenkashi Amman Temple. Its architecture will take your breath away.

Kerala's weather is hot & humid so don't forget to carry  a few extra set of clothes. Other than that everything is perfect :)

Ernakulum, east of Kochi, was the starting point for our journey through this fantastic coastal state.

It has beautiful tea & spice gardens. Munnar is like an escape from hot & humid Kerela & is way cooler. You might also need your woolen clothes by night.

We went to Periyaar National park in Thekaady. It was a water trail & we saw many birds & animals on our way. It will be an interesting place for nature lovers.

It is the place for famous Kerela backwaters. Trust me, you'll reach a different world altogether. You can also have the famous Karimeen( brackish water fish) while on your way.

Being the southernmost point of India, you'll have 3 water bodies around. There are Vivekananda rocks right in between the ocean. You can go there & witness the amazing Indian Ocean closely.
