Kerala Hill Station Tour
Kerala Hill Station Tour: The Western Ghats mountain ranges make up an impressive fortress all along Kerala. These mountains ranging from the southern tip of Kerala all the way to Mumbai, on the western coast of India have been a natural barrier in the eastern border of Kerala and a helping hand to reap the bounties of both the Southwest and the Northeast monsoons.
The hill stations of Kerala have drawn the attention of tourists for their agreeable climate and proximity to the wildlife sanctuaries. These hill station ranges are also home to most of world's spices and have over the centuries attained a certain mystique. The principal hill stations are at Wayanad in North Kerala, Munnar and Thekkady in Central Kerala and Ponmudi in South Kerala!
Kerala Wild Life Tour: The elephant is the symbol of Kerala, signifying the deep links that the forests have on the lives of the people of Kerala. These forests have been closely associated with the customs, traditions, and social life of Kerala for centuries. The forests here are indeed some of the most magnificent and varied found anywhere in the world.
A number of excellent Wildlife Sanctuaries and National Parks have been created to protect the forests and the multitudes of animals therein. Periyar Tiger Reserve, Silent Valley National Park, Eravikulam National Park … are some among the best managed sanctuaries in India!
Backwaters : Backwaters are an amazing phenomenon of Kerala - a necklace of lagoons lakes, canals and rivers that run through the length of this beautiful land. In fact much of Kerala's uniqueness lies in its backwaters - found nowhere else in the world.
Visit to the backwater destinations of Kumarakum, Kollam and Kozhikodu can be a most rewarding experience. The lagoons at these destinations with their spectacular view and fringed by coconut trees have been featured in travel books all over the world. No journey to the backwaters is complete without a stay on board a "Kettuvallam" or a houseboat which takes you on a journey through the length and breadth of the lagoons and waterways!
Kerala Beaches : Kerala has long stretches of silvery beaches for those interested in the Sun . . . Most of it is still in a pristine stage, giving a chance to the wanderer to enjoy these stretches in relative peace. Kovalam to the south of capital Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala, Cherai, and Alleppey are some of the best beaches on the Southern stretches of the state.
The beaches to the North are beautiful, unspoiled and not too crowded. The districts of Kannur and Kasargod have many miles of unbroken silvery beaches. Some of these have been developed into resorts, but the vast majority is still there for the travelers interested in Solitude and Sun!
