WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS TOUR
A Dreamy Landscape
Unlike the hectic tourist epicenters of Jaipur and Delhi, relaxation practically oozes out of Kerala. As your boat glides along the backwaters, watch the farmers work on rice paddy fields, housewives washing laundry while coconut palms wave under a warm breeze.
See Animals In Their Natural Habitat
Up in the mountain range, the spectacular Periyar National Park is a tropical jungle filled with trekking trails, lakes and abundant wildlife. It is easy to spot monkeys, water buffalo, even elephants, Bengal tigers and jaguars if you are lucky.
Locally Grown Kerala Cuisine
Food is flavored with delicate spices from local spice farms, generating gentle spikes of heat to enhance your taste buds rather than the intense heat often associated with Northern Indian Cuisine. Being next to Arabian Sea means a plentiful supply of fresh fish and crabs.
