We highly recommend a family trip to Kerala, there really is something for everyone. Here’s a bucket list of the top things to see:
Safari at a wildlife sanctuary
Ranthambore in Northern India is famous for the wildlife sanctuary which is said to have India’s friendliest Tigers and is also considered to be the best place in the world to photograph the tiger in its natural habitat. This is also a wonderful place for bird watching.
The reserve is also home to many picturesque ruins that are dotted over the park; there are lake palaces, cenotaphs and a thousand-year-old fort overlooking the park.
Surrounded by lush green-carpeted tea and coffee plantations, Munnar in Kerala is a picturesque hill station situated in the eastern part of Kerala. The town is located at the confluence of three mountain streams — Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kudala.
Enjoy a sightseeing tour of Munnar, which includes visiting the Mattupetty Dam, Kundale Lake, and Echo point. You will also visit the Rajamalai where the rarest species of mountain goat, ‘Nilgiri Thars’, can be spotted, and the Tea Museum which has been built in the Nallathanni estate of Tata Tea.
Chill and play at the beach
Situated on a jagged coastline that opens up to the Arabian sea, there are numerous beach resorts in Kerala to choose from. Sun, sand and sea – need we say more?
Raise anchor in the backwaters
The Kerala waterways play an important role in the economy as they link remote villages to the mainland.
Today used to help guests to Kerala explore this beautiful area, originally these boats were used to carry rice bags and are uniquely designed using local materials including bamboo poles, coconut fibre ropes, bamboo matts, carpets etc.
Transport yourself away!
Part of the fun of visiting India is throwing yourself into the culture, which in this case might mean literally throwing yourself into a brightly coloured auto-rickshaw!
Surprisingly spacious and great fun, the whole family and the kitchen sink can pile in and whizz through India’s sprawling cities – taking in all the delights of street life as you speed on by.
