There are dime a dozen Kerala tour packages, but to pick the one that truly suits your interest whether it is nature, history, art, culture, cuisine or leisure, requires discretion. We help you shortlist Kerala holiday packages that are a bang for your bucks.
There is no exaggeration in Kerala’s status as ‘God’s own country’, for how else does one explain its gorgeous 600-kilometre stretch of undisturbed coastline skirting the Arabian Sea, the palm-fringed beaches, a network of languid backwaters home to a vibrant rural life, the misty tea-covered Western Ghats, wildlife reserves teeming with endemic flora and fauna and spice plantations running rampant on its valleys and hill slopes. One of the country’s cleanest states, and perhaps the friendliest too, it is an absolute delight travelling around, visiting the historical temples and museums in Trivandrum, getting a slice of the maritime history in Cochin (Kochi) or taking a boat ride to islands like Mattancherry to trace its Jewish roots. Add to it a culture that is defined by colourful folk art and dance forms, a cuisine that is subtle yet generous in its use of spices, and a passion for Ayurveda that promises to soothe frazzled nerves. Simply slacken your stride and let all its sights and smell envelop you.
In your quest for Kerala packages, make sure your itinerary incorporates these places.
Alleppey: Kerala’s getaway into the backwaters, Alleppey or Alappuzha is an intricate network of waterways that is choc-a-block with a thousand houseboats either anchored or motoring down a mesh of canals. A major hub for the state’s coir industry, the Alleppey backwaters stretch to its south, north and east and bring you face to face with some glorious rural scenery that you’re going to remember for time to come. You could opt for the heavy rice barges or the houseboat and let it take you down the Kollam route in its languid pace. The green waterways with a heavy fringe of coconut trees shelter a backwater life that is at once picturesque and heart-rending. Stand on your deck and watch little kids leave for their school in punted canoes or wooden boats, toddy shops busying up for the day, village women stooping over their paddy crop, the elderly folk sitting in a huddle and reminiscing, until a flock of thousand ducks decides to cut across and bring everything to a grinding halt. It is only when the villages taper off revealing a great blue sea burbling in the distance with the Chinese fishing nets forming the only tangible barrier between you, the fragility of life in the backwaters dawns upon you.

Wayanad: A Kerala trip mandates a visit to Wayanad, its wild northern region that shares borders with Karnakata and Tamil Nadu. An important elephant corridor, Wayanad surrounded by the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve which is a part of the Western Ghats creates a breathtaking mountain scenery. As you explore further, a canvas opens up before you of blazing green paddy fields, betel nut groves, bamboo jungles, fields of ginger shrubs, and plantations of coffee, cardamom, rubber and eucalyptus. Wayanad’s seclusion compared to the rest of Kerala, the presence of some quaint coffee and spice plantation stays, and the British-made serpentine highways that wind up its hillside, make it a perfect retreat and a refreshing break from the tourist-heavy backwaters and the beaches. Dissected by the Kabini River and home to one of the country’s largest dams, the Banasura Sagar Dam, Wayanad’s fecund land has been a proven goldmine for a variety of cash crops since the colonial era.Share this tour
