"God's Own Country"

Kerala, India

Nestled in the southwestern corner of India, Kerala, often referred to as "God's Own Country," is a land of enchanting beauty and rich cultural tapestry. Lush with tropical vegetation, pristine beaches, serene backwaters and a variety of flora and fauna, Kerala is an ideal destination for honeymooners and families. The famous backwaters of Alleppey and Kumarakom, adorned with houseboats gently gliding on tranquil waters, epitomize the unique charm of Kerala.

Kerala is divided into three distinct regions  – Malabar, Cochin, and Travancore – comprising a total of 14 districts each offering a unique experience. The Malabar region, with its historic spice trade, has a rich cultural heritage. Kochi, a bustling port city, reflects the influence of various colonial powers through its architecture and cuisine. The southern region of Travancore boasts majestic temples and pristine beaches, contributing to the state's diverse charm.

Kerala also boasts thriving wildlife sanctuaries and lush tea plantations. The Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, nestled in the Western Ghats, offers a haven for diverse flora and fauna.  The idyllic hill station of Munnar is renowned for its vast tea plantations, where emerald-green slopes carpet the landscape. Kerala's cuisine is a gastronomic delight, featuring a variety of flavorful dishes. The traditional meal, known as "Sadya," served on a banana leaf, showcases an array of curries, rice, and accompaniments. The state is renowned for its spices, and the cuisine reflects a perfect blend of aromatic herbs and distinctive flavors. 

The culture of Kerala is deeply rooted in its traditions and arts. The state celebrates Onam, a harvest festival of Kerala, with grandeur, marked by elaborate feasts, traditional games, and vibrant cultural performances. Thrissur Pooram, another major festival, is a spectacular display of colors, music, and fireworks. Kathakali, a classical dance form, and Theyyam, a ritualistic performance art, showcase the state's rich cultural heritage. The traditional martial art form of Kalaripayattu, believed to be one of the oldest in the world, adds another layer to Kerala's cultural landscape.

Kerala's international airports, including Trivandrum, Cochin, and Calicut, facilitate seamless connectivity, welcoming visitors from around the globe. The state is a haven for Ayurveda, with rejuvenating practices deeply ingrained in its culture. Ayurvedic resorts and wellness centers, nestled amidst serene landscapes, offer holistic experiences, blending traditional therapies, herbal treatments, and yoga. The best time to visit Kerala is during the winter months, from October to March, when the weather is pleasant, and the landscapes are at their verdant best.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Hill station and long beaches within kilometers of each other. Rolling backwaters and amazing amalgamation of cuisine.

What's Not So Great?

Language could become a barrier if you are not a Malayali, though there are a lot of people who can converse in English or Hindi. The summers can be a pain in some parts of Kerala. While the hills would remain cool, the rest would be sweating through and through.

For Whom?

One would think that Kerala is only for families. Young adults can have a fantastic time in God's own country. If one is all about relaxing and enjoying some fresh sea breeze while getting a holistic Ayurveda spa treatment, this could be the destination. If there is an appetite for adventure, there is plenty of room there too.
