Kerala, a state in Southern India is known as a tropical paradise of waving palms and wide sandy beaches. It is a narrow strip of coastal territory that slopes down the Western Ghats in a cascade of lush green vegetation, and reaches to the Arabian sea. Kerala borders the states of Tamil Nadu to the east and Karnataka to the north. It is also known for its backwaters, mountains, coconuts, spices and art forms like Kathakali and Mohini Attam. It is the most literate state in India, and a land of diverse religions, where you can find Hindu temples, mosques, churches, and even synagogues. With world class tourist sporting options, ayurvedic spas and treatments, eco-tourism initiatives, a large number of visit options ranging from beautiful high altitude blue mountains

to pristine rain forests to golden sun-sand beaches and an enormous range of accommodation, Kerala has much to offer the visitor.

Kerala is a land of myriad experiences with something for everyone. There is a plethora of delightful sights on offer, each more fascinating than the other. The labyrinthine backwaters that sensuously weave their way through the land; quaint hamlets that adorn picture postcard hills blanketed in green; miles and miles of palm fringed beaches awash with sugary sand that hem the shoreline; an astounding variety of flora and fauna; exquisitely ornate temples, churches and mosques; the balmy, salubrious climate; a cultured and courteous people; a rich and colourful tradition of festivals, arts and crafts - all add up to make Kerala an idyllic get-away destination. 'Earth has not anything to show more fair' - Wordsworth would surely agree. As if all this isn't tempting enough, the region is also home to the relaxing and unhurried therapeutic touch of Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old holistic system of medicine that restores physical, mental and spiritual well-being and enhances life expectancy.

Interestingly, despite being listed by National Geographic Traveller as one of the world's ten 'Paradises Found', Kerala is still remarkably 'unfound' by mass tourism…so now is the time to visit this

unique and exquisite region of India.
