Kerala is yet another unique region of India. It is known as a paradise and there is no bragging to call it "God's own country". It is a land of simple and well literate people. Kerala offers an equable climate, serene beaches, tranquil stretches of backwaters, lush hill stations and exotic wildlife. The best thing about traveling to Kerala is that most of the destinations here are only a two - four hours’ drive from each other. This keeps you wondering how many different landscapes and experiences are stacked by God in such a small piece of land.

In just a couple of hours drive the mountains change to vast stretch of backwaters, and another couple of hours take you to pristine beaches. The enchanting backwater destinations, Kumarakom and Alleppey offer the best backwaters experiences in the world. An eco-friendly kayak ride though these backwaters will take you closer to the day-to-day life of the villages lying on the shores of the backwaters.

This trip culminates with a lovely experience of overnight stay at a private AC houseboat in the backwaters.
