Kerala, Special deal May-Dec 14

$555* / 5 Days/4 Nts


Kerala, The Malabar Coast - 5 days/ 4 nights

A short tour of this gem of southern India – the backwaters, wildlife and lush countryside of Kerala.

Kochi, where the tour begins, is a conglomeration of islands, one of the finest natural harbours in the world. It was a major center of trade with the British, Arabs, Chinese, Portuguese and Dutch. Today it remains the main trading center for spices and seafood. Though it is Kerala's most cosmopolitan city, it still retains in charm and provincial feel.

Periyar is the Wildlife capital - the tigers maybe a bit elusive in these dense tropical forests but there are a multitude of animal and birdlife to keep the nature lover enthralled.

Kumarakom slumbers on the banks of the famous Vembanad Lake with its numerous canals, streams and distributaries that weave an intricate and enchantingly beautiful web. Its undisturbed tranquility makes it a favourite with a vast number of migratory birds who are also attracted by the abundance of fish to be had. This is the ideal spot to start or finish a backwater kettuvalam (housboat) cruise.

The journey I was about to undertake would not only  in geographical terms span vast distances over land and was an odyssey which would cover a period of over four hundred years and one in which I would try to establish a "connection" with my ancestors.
