I will be visiting Kerala in September and will be blogging while away. But I want to introduce what I will be doing. Kerala is called “God’s Own Country” because it is lush and green, especially so in September. Kerala can be visited alone or as part of a custom India itinerary that can include Rajasthan or Tamil Nadu and of course the Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh. Kerala is beautiful any time of year even during the monsoon.
I am very excited about watching the Bullock race in Palghat, the Tiger dance festival in Trichur and the Snake Boat race in Pathanamthitta. These are all exciting and fun festivals to watch.
I have been to Kerala many times but will be going to check out properties and to see what is new and exciting. I do love Kerala and think it is a great destination that includes the backwaters with an overnight cruise, the beaches along the Arabian Sea, hill stations, spice plantations, tea and coffee plantations, wildlife and you can not forget ayurvedic treatments and yoga.
Boutique properties and homestays are special in Kerala. I will be staying in Neeleswar on the water in North Kerala, Boynton Boatyard in Kochin, Coconut Lagoon in Kumarakom, Kandath Tharavad, a homestay in Palakkad, Manaas Veedu in Pathamittha, Marari Beach Resort in Mararikulam and Anavalasim in Thekkady.
These are just a few suggestions for visiting Kerala. You may want to see some of Geringer Global Travel’s South India Itineraries including The Road to Kerala.
