In the strip of land between the Western Ghat mountains and the Arabian Sea, you’ll find “the land of coconuts,” otherwise known as Kerela. This tropical area in southwest India is a great place to relax after your flight to India. You can ride ferries through the waterways and lagoons under the shade of palm trees that cover the area. Some of the best resorts in the country rest on Kerela’s coastline, along with a fantastic beach. The cool weather provides a welcome break from the rest of India’s heat as you dine on delicious vegetarian cuisine or explore scenery dotted with temples, churches, natural forests, wildlife reserves and plantations producing tea, coffee, spice and rubber. The natural beauty is worth the India flight, with mountains overlooking rich, green valleys and gorgeous sights like Athirampally Falls.
If you’re booking flights to Kerala to experience monumental sights, then the palaces and museums that surround this historical resort town won’t disappoint you. Alwaye Palace, settled on the Banks of the Periyar River, is one of the finest establishments in the area, ornate with circular verandahs overlooking the river. Boghatty Palace, built by the Dutch in 1744, was used as the governor’s residence, and is now used as a tourist hotel. Its canopied garden allows for scenic views of the Arabian Sea. To be dazzled by the king’s throne and crown, visit the Hill Palace Museum, where the wealth and prosperity of the royal family houses beds, paintings, carvings, and epigraphy of ancient temples.
For the outward-bound traveler booking flights to Kerala, take advantage of the beautiful waterfalls that cascade from the area’s highest peaks and descend into lush, green valleys. The Vazhachal waterfall is the most picturesque, and surrounded by thick, verdant forest land. Pouring into the Chalakudy River, it creates a powerful flow of water that intensifies its peaceful façade. Just east of the Panualur, the Palaruvi waterfall surges down a mountain pass more than 300 feet tall.
India’s last stretch of tropical evergreen rain forest spans throughout the Silent Valley National park, where elephants, tigers, wild dogs, and flying squirrels coexist in nature’s habitat. Because of vehicular traffic around park is limited, it may be your most challenging Kerala travel excursion, but the experience is worth the obstacle. Another sanctuary, the Eravikulam National Park, was established solely for the preservation of the Nilgiri Tahr, beloved endangered species of India. It also shelters elephants, sambars, guars, lion-tailed macaques, and leopards. While it’s the perfect place to trek, it’s also a great place to camp. Accommodation and board facilities are available in Munnar, the nearest town.
