Kerala lies on the west coast of India and is characterized by its tropical climate and swaying coconut palms. We will start our journey at Fort Kochi - an apt introduction to the multi-cultural ambience of Kerala.
Day 1, 2: Historic Fort Kochi
Explore and discover a hamlet which the explorers made their home, Kochi. You are sure to feel welcomed in this city of winding lanes, chinese fishing nets, colourful shops, great food and ferry boats moving about in the backwaters that surround Kochi. Walk through the old part of town where several Portuguese style houses, cobbled lanes, the famous St Francis Church, the Cochin Clubhouse, the Dutch palace (Mattancherry palace), the Synagogue, Jew town and many other vintage sights will charm you. A live Kathakali performance would be a fitting finale to a perfect day.
Day 3, 4, 5: At a Spice Plantation Villa & Spa
You will move to a homestay tucked away in the deep interiors of Kerala, at the foothills of the Western Ghats, to an organic farm. From the patio of your room you can view the Sahyadri mountains, beyond the river and the forest. Here, you will visit the village, meet the people working their farms, learn to cook and maybe visit the local school during your stay.
Day 6, 7, 8: Wilderness at Periyar
With over 900 sq kms of thick rain forests, Periyar is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Herds of elephant, tigers, Indian bison and sloth bears are common sightings here. Surrounded by spice plantations, Periyar makes an ideal place for forest treks, wildlife safaris and visiting indigenous tribes. A night trek into the Periyar Tiger Reserve in the company of the forest guards will reveal much of the wildlife in the area.
Day 9, 10, 11: Backwaters at Alleppey
We will drive to an interior village located on the backwaters near Alleppey. Your destination today will be a beautiful Keralan style heritage villa along the banks of River Manimala. Cycling along these quiet friendly villages will give you the chance to visit the farmlands, watch the local brew ‘toddy’ being tapped or see the local artisan weaving coir ropes or coir mats. For those interested in a visit to the beach, you can take off for a walk along the local beach which is just a few minutes away. Delicious Kuttanadan cuisine is sure to light up your stay here.
