Kerala Discover a tropical Indian paradise

 

Fly from Cardiff to Kerala (Kochi) with a one-stop connection

Located on the south-west coast of India, Kerala is a tropical region deemed by many travellers as India’s state of serenity and beauty that really does offer something for everyone. Kerala is far from the metropolises of India, and provides a more relaxed and peaceful experience for travellers, where it’s possible to soak up culture, heritage and cuisine whilst being immersed in stunning scenery.  The region boasts a breath-taking landscape of rice paddies, gorgeous backwaters and forests brimming with wildlife. It lines the Arabian Sea with 600km of coastline filled with sandy beaches perfect for relaxing on or exploring.

The friendliness of the local people is something that continually draws travellers to the region, and are known for being down-to-earth, peaceful people. Homestays are a great way to interact with local families and enjoy truly traditional cuisine, providing a unique experience. The most popular region and airport location is the port city of Kochi (Cochin) known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea due its key role in the spice trade. The capital, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) is situated close to the gorgeous tropical beaches of Kovalam and Varkala. However travellers are also turning their heads to the northern parts of Kerala, which is dotted with serene beaches, fishing villages and temples to capture the imagination.

1. Sample taste bud-tingling cuisine! Keralan food is so diverse from the rest of India and an absolute must for seafood lovers. You can feast on huge prawns, lobster and an array of seafood caught fresh from the Arabian Sea. Dishes are flavoured with coconuts and aromatic spices home to the region. A homestay is recommended to get a true flavour of Keralan family cooking!

2. Get up close to incredible wildlife! The Kerala region is home to rain forests where species such as the Asian elephant, Bengal tiger and even the odd leopard roam! There are a number of wildlife sanctuaries nestled within the forests where you can watch the animals in awe.

3. Cruise on the backwaters! No trip is complete without exploring the idyllic lagoons of Kerala. Take in the views of lush plantations and wildlife as you cruise along the lagoons. You can also spend the night on board a houseboat- a truly special experience

4. Enjoy a brew like no other! A must visit is the mountaintop tea-plantation of Munnar, where visitors can go on a guided hike through the plantations, take in the crisp air and incredible views, whilst sipping on a cup of tea picked from a local plantation.

5. Experience a Stunning Kathakali Show! Kathakli is a traditional dance dating back to the 17th Century and is highly celebrated in the region featuring extravagant costumes and make-up and traditional dance combining devotion, drama and music that makes a spectacular experience.
