Kerala Travel Guide - Kerala Tourist Attractions
Several rivers, beaches, lakes, hill stations and quaint houseboats sailing in its backwaters dotted with gently waving palm trees, have made Kerala a topmost tourist destination in the world. Adding to its many natural charms which include innumerable waterfalls and picnic spots, are the therapeutic spas, yoga and ayurvedic treatment it offers.
Situated in the south-western part of the country, Kerala has the mighty Arabian Sea on its west while it is sheltered by the Western Ghats on its eastern side with tall mountains and deep valleys. From here stem its 44 rivers. The nature lovers will love the Kerala Holiday Package as they trek through heavily forested hills and valleys, or head to hill resorts which lend panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Popular destinations are Nelliyampathy where one can view the spectacular cloud-draped Nelliyampat mountain peak; Munnar, which is known for its natural beauty; Rajamala, another scenic hill resort near Munnar; Vellerimala with lush greenery, innumerable brooks and waterfalls making it an ideal spot for picnickers and trekkers; and, Pullumedu in Idduki, to reach which one has to sail through a river.
Tourists availing of the Kerala Holiday Package will find several splendid beaches hugging the coastline scattered all over Kerala, though the most famous is the Kovalam beach. A stay in a houseboat is a favoured experience, as you sail in the placid backwaters through lush paddy fields and palm-tree lined coasts. Alongside are Kerala’s variety of seafood and the popular toddy, as well as its spas. Rich in flora and fauna, the state has hundreds of species of plants, birds and animals of which several are found only in this state. There are several wildlife sanctuaries, including the famous Idukki, Periyar and Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuaries as well as the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary and Parimbukkalam Tiger Reserve.
