The slender coconut trees, banana plantations, silent but charming backwaters, and lush greenery coupled with an occasional animal or bird peeking out from the thick, green, healthy foliage make Kerala an endearing place. Experience the magic that nature has to offer in her platter, with Kerala tour packages, designed to cater to the aesthetic pleasures of every globetrotter. Starting from Cochin, the Harbor City, followed by Munnar, featuring some of the best-looking hill stations in India, the Kerala tour packages are bound to mesmerize you. There is wonder waiting for you in the wilderness of Thekkady and the attractive backwaters of Alleppey.
Cochin is the first destination in the list of Kerala tour packages, and your arrival at the Cochin International Airport, located in one of the popular cities in the state, marks the start of your trip.
The one Cochin sight that will stay with you even after you leave Kerala would be the dip of the Chinese fishing boats into tumultuous seas at high tides around the headland of Fort Cochin.
In the evening, an awe-inspiring Kathakali performance, one of the most celebrated cultural shows of Kerala will keep you engaged. Then, there is the exhilarating Kalaripayattu, where the sounds of the swords cutting into the air and hitting the shield can be deafening but thrilling to your senses.
After breakfast, it’s time to get moving to Munnar, which was once the summer resort of the British Government, but a popular resort town these days. At the confluence of Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kundala stands Munnar, with the picture book towns, winding paths, and tea plantations adding to its glory. Here you will come across the highest peak in South India, Anamudi, towering over 2695 meters, the perfect site for trekking.
Everything about Munnar is fascinating and Anayirangal (Elephant Lake) is one attraction that lures visitors and keeps them busy for hours. The dam and reservoir complement the scenic beauty, making it an ideal picnic spot. So, don’t forget to carry your picnic hamper!
Also, you will get some wonderful snaps, with the perfect background to boot. The evergreen forests and the clear skyline will tickle the nature-lover in you, and the aromatic scents of tea plantations at Tata Tea Museum will make you hesitant to leave.
It’s time to bid adieu to the enchantment of Munnar but there is no need to be downcast, for the next trip in Kerala tour packages is to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary at Thekkady. As you move along the rolling hills, the intense scents wafting from the coffee plantations will rouse you from your slumber and get you excited for the rest of the trip. At the heart of the sanctuary, the wild boars, elephants, ibex, and long-tailed monkeys are in their element. You will occasionally hear a bird calling out to its mate, and you might even recognize a hornbill, heron, kite, kingfisher or darter.
After the treasure hunt at the spice plantations surrounding the reserve, a refreshing ride on Periyar Lake would start to beckon you.
Periyar has one of the major spice plantations in Kerala. Lucky you, you’ll come across a variety of spices, namely pepper, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger, curry leaves, and turmeric, their scents staying with you even after you retire for lunch at the plantation.
Your day gets even better- it’s time to make friends with elephants! The Periyar National Park under Kerala tour packages offers a lifetime opportunity to buddy up with elephants! You can feed them bananas, go on a walk around the plantations, and even bathe them!
A day full of leisure and peace awaits you in one of the traditionally styled thatched houseboats, on which you would cruise along the backwaters of Alleppey. The houseboat chef gets your meals ready while you take in the glorious sights and breathe in the fresh, sweet-smelling air of Alleppey. You will find modern comforts in the houseboat, and it’s a great way to spend time with your co-traveler, enjoying nature and feeling the cool breeze on your face.
It’s time to leave the backwaters and go back to Cochin, the first and the last location in the list of Kerala tour packages. The last day of the trip would be limited to light exploration, along the Old Cochin area, which was once home to the Jewish community. Their Paradesi Synagogue is an architectural masterpiece and you will easily note the touch of tradition in the interiors of the synagogue.
Next, we will visit the Vasco Da Gama Square, the place which offers the best view of the Chinese fishing nets trapping fish. The tour comes to an end with a trip to some of the historical landmarks of Cochin.
Every traveler after a visit to Kerala comes back as a changed person, with eyes full of cheer and optimism, and a spring in their steps. Kerala does that! After all, it’s “God’s Own Country!”
