Description of Kerala tailor made holiday
Kerala is one of India's most beguiling regions, set between the Arabian Sea and the uplands of the Western Ghats, traversed by over forty tranquil emerald-green rivers lined with colourful villages. It's a laidback place too, whose countless palm trees – Kerala means 'land of coconuts' – provide cooling shade from the tropical sun.
Kerala has one of India's loveliest shorelines, including the glorious beach at Kovalam plus the delightful city of Cochin, perched on a saltwater lagoon. Visit its 16th century Church of St. Francis, Paradesi Synagogue and Mattancherry Palace.
Heading inland and upward, you reach the picturesque town of Munnar for an overnight stay amid the tea plantations of the lush Cardamom Hills. Driving on to Periyar, you pass through pepper and coffee plantations before an afternoon boat trip on Lake Periyar - a beacon for birdlife (herons, hornbills and egrets) as well as hundreds of elephants.
After a day relaxing in the resort at Kumarakom, end the trip with a full-day cruise on a private houseboat (kettuvallom) along a palm-fringed backwater, with pauses ashore to visit local temples and other attractions. There will also be ample chance to enjoy a local cuisine inspired by influences from a rich trading past, from Syria to Portugal. Crab and coconut are classic Keralan ingredients, while karimeen is a delicious river fish traditionally served marinated in lemon juice and red chillies then baked in plantain leaves.
