In that strip of land that lies between the Western Ghat mountains and the Arabian Sea, you’ll find Kerala, known as “the land of coconuts”. This tropical part of southwest India is a wonderful way to shake off the jetlag after your flight to India. 

Take a ferry through the waterways and lagoons in the shade of swaying palm trees. Some of the best resorts – and beaches – in India are to be found on Kerela’s coastline. Cooler weather provides a welcome break from the rest of India’s searing heat as you dine on delicious vegetarian fare. 

Explore the temples, churches, natural forests, wildlife reserves and plantations that produce the tea, coffee and spices used back home. With mountains overlooking lush, green valleys and gorgeous sights such as Athirapalli Falls, it won’t be long before you’re planning a return trip to Kerala.
