I spent a week on a short but fruitful sightseeing tour of Kerala, and returned back yesterday. My earlier experiences with Kerala was restricted to Wayanad district and Munnar, except for a short journey to Kochi when I was a kid.
During this week of travelling, I discovered what Kerala is all about and why it attracts so many tourists. I covered all the popular tourist circuit of Kerala including the beaches at Kappad near Kozhikode, Cherai beach near Cochin, the venerable and the must do – Fort Kochi, the ever popular Ayurvedic massages, the backwaters trip on the Vembanad lake and south India’s most well known tiger reserve – Periyar.
The trip gave an excellent introduction to Kerala and has worked as a good precursor for taking my own time someday and spend more time travelling to the corners of this beautiful state. As usual, I shall write about all of it in detail with photographs here sometime in the days to come.
