Classic Kerala Tour with Backwaters : 10 Days

Begin your journey in Cochin- Gateway to Kerala, a vibrant cultural hub with strong Arab, Portuguese, Dutch and British influences. Capture the mesmerizing beauty of its harbor , the cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, a Jewish synagogue and the palace built by the Portuguese. In the evening enjoy the story-telling art of Kathakali and the martial-art grace of Kalaripayattu.

Head to Munnar , a picturesque hill station in God's own country , known for its serenity and remarkable beauty. Set amidst thriving green tea plantations, exotic wildlife and clear trout streams, Munnar is a delight for tourists.

Drive through tropical evergreen and deciduous forests to arrive at Thekkady to the Periyar Tiger Reserve. The best way to see the reserve is by taking a boat cruise on the Periyar Lake to do some bird spotting and perhaps catch a glimpse of the elusive tiger!

A short drive takes you to Kumarakom –the awe-inspiring backwater town of Kerala. Enjoy the picture perfect coconut –fringed Kerala backwaters aboard a luxurious houseboat as you sail through narrow canals abundant with aquatic life and animals such as the otters, turtles and beautiful migratory birds. Unwind and relax as you admire your picturesque surroundings and watch the water gently slinking past as you sip cardamom tea from the deck.

Head to Mararikulam , a beach village in the district of Alappuzha full of coconut trees and a relaxed holiday atmosphere. From luxurious Ayurvedic massages, a rejuvenating yoga class at the beach front to sumptuous seafood, this little piece of paradise will take you away from the chaos, stress and humdrum of life.

Back in Cochin, you will find it hard to bid adieu to this gorgeous and spectacular place.
