The small state of Kerala, which represents just 1% of the land mass, is considered to be one of India`s most beautiful state. It is a very rural state with most of the population living in villages but is culturally and scenically diverse. Kerala has two national parks, ten wildlife sanctuaries and two bird sanctuaries.
The appealing thing about Kerala from a visitor’s point of view is that if offers an enticing combination of beaches, backwaters and hills. When you tire of lounging on soft, surf-lashed sand, you can head off on backwater cruises in converted wooden rice barges, venture up into the cooler climes of the Western Ghats Mountains for a stay on a tea plantation, or go elephant and tiger spotting in any number of remote national parks. Kerala’s rich tradition of elaborately costumed ritual theatre – notably the masked drama form, Kathakali – adds yet another dimension to travelling in the state, as do its vibrant temple festivals, featuring spectacular processions of caparisoned elephants, drum orchestras and firework displays.
