Kerala

Coconuts and kalari, synagogues and backwaters, seafood and kathakali. There's much more to Kerala than the swaying palm trees make it out to be. Step into a trader's wonderland, laden with spices and beautiful people, haven to Jews and Christians alike. Nothing in 'God's own country' is ever understated. From its people and politics to the fiery cuisine, everything in Kerala is in abundance.

Things to do

Kochi backwater island tour- A short 22-kilometre drive to 'Poothotta' is the perfect way to begin your day. Head out past urbanization and a steadily growing city of Kochi to the quaint village of Poothotta. A pleasant surprise from rush-hour traffic in the city, the amazing backwaters of this region are a treat for sore urban eyes.

Ayurvedic massage- No visit to Kerala is ever complete without experiencing world's oldest healthcare option, 'ayurveda'. Choose your time slot and head over to the Ayurvedic Centre of your hotel for a uniquerejuvenating massage in medicinal oil.

Bamboo rafting- NilgiriLangurs are set in motion with alarming calls as they flee on treetops deeper into the jungle with your entrance.Move on to bamboo rafts through the reservoir dotted with little islands as the forest gets darker around. Expect the odd splash or two on this surprisingly comfortable rafting experience.

Chinnar Trek- Jungle Book it certainly is not, but close enough. Get up close and personal with nature as you spend a night in a thatched hut on top of a hill, in the middle of a jungle, overlooking the vast expanse of forest ahead.

Best time to visit September to March

For clearer skies, opt for a slot between the early September to the end of March. The beaches look their best early November through to March.

Mid-October and November does see a fair amount of rain with the North-West monsoons.

Sultry summers set in by April to the end of May with fairly high outdoor temperatures.

Monsoons arrive by the first week of June right through to the end of August. Cool temperatures with overcast skies and green all around make this a visit like none other.
