Periyar: One of the Unforgettable Place in our Married Life

It is quite sure that no one in the world could explore all the stupendous places in their lifetime. Each and every nation hosts hundreds of marvelous places that it would be really difficult for humans to traverse all these places but still, we people never lose hope. In the name of excursion or family tours, people used to visit the fabulous tourist destinations either alone or with their good friends and dear ones. As part of school and college tours, most of us would have explored the beguiling beauty of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. As we grew older and older we change the destination and select places that provide immense opportunities to practice adventurous activities. I am such a person who loves to discover the amusing beauty of the secluded place. It is my lifetime dream to visit all the fanatic places and learn their unique customs and rituals. After graduating from one of the prestigious colleges I was absorbed into one of the best IT industries in the nation. After working for 3-4 years like any parent even my family also started to search for alliances for me. It would be not correct if I say that I did not have any dreams or expectations regarding my life partner. Yes like any guy even I weaved several dreams for my better half. It was nothing related to beauty, education, or family status but she should have craze towards adventure events!!! I know it would be really surprising for you. As I am a travel lover and adventure enthusiast, I wanted my partner to give me company for my daring trips. My friends always say that I am really different person in every aspect. Every time I had the thought that it will take time for me to find my dream partner. But my destiny really astonished me. Within a short span of time, I was able to find my perfect match. Within 2-3 meetings I came to know that even she is fond of enthralling activities. In several aspects, we found similarities hence we agreed for marriage. Soon after completing all the wedding rituals, we started to think about our honeymoon tour. As mentioned earlier I always wanted to explore the unexplored places, we decided to discover the magical gem hidden in the southern states especially in Kerala. Through my friends, I came to know that Kerala, famously known as ‘god’s own country’ shelter may breathtaking hill stations and cerulean seashores. At first, we thought to curate the itinerary by ourselves self but understanding the hazard behind it we decided to avail of packages from well-reputed travel operators such as Dream Holidays in Kerala.

As we were fond of mind-blowing tourist places we decided to explore the stupendous charm of the surroundings of the longest river in Kerala called Periyar. On the banks of the river is situated the largest wildlife sanctuary called Periyar wildlife sanctuary. The astounding beauty of the sanctuary could be described in mere words. I and my wife were busy capturing the alluring beauty of the fauna and flora. It is one of the few places in Kerala where one could find rare and endangered species of wild animals and birds. With permission from the concerned authorities, we feed some of the beautiful and amusing birds. After strolling for more than an hour we moved to one of the best canteens over there and satiated our appetite. By the evening we moved to a well-conditioned tree-house and enjoyed the panoramic beauty of the dark sky encompassed with twinkling stars. It was really an awe-inspiring moment for us. What else to say such sweet moments could not be experienced anywhere else in the world? More than us it was the birds and animals who wanted us to witness the gorgeous beauty of the rising sun. Therefore the birds sang melodiously in front of our treehouse. It is really marvelous time to witness the sun rising from the far end through binoculars.

After relishing a scrumptious breakfast prepared in Kerala style we moved to the famous Ayyapancovil hanging bridge. What makes the bridge so famous is nothing but the unique architectural style. Located at a 14 km from the main town of Idukki called Kattappana, Ayyapancovil hanging bridge is known to be one of the fascinating tourist destinations in southern parts of Kerala. Even though from the bridge one could enjoy the resplendent beauty of the serene nature, you can try hand in other options such as by rowing bamboo rafts. When sailing in the bamboo rafts we were really able to enchant the surreal beauty of the virgin nature enriched with natural resources. When we were practicing rafting we saw many people especially youngsters and newly married couples seeking help from the well-experienced professionals to the raft. Most of them arrived there like us by availing of tour packages to Kerala from authorized travel operators. People, who explore the gorgeous beauty of the hanging bridge, will definitely visit the Ayyapankovil Sastha Temple. What makes the temple so special is because it was constructed by Lord Parashurama himself. Another intriguing feature of the temple even during heavy rain the main portion of the temple called ‘Sreekovil’ in the Malayalam language did not drench. This miracle attracted hundreds of devotees and travel enthusiasts from various corners of the world. After enjoying splendid days in Kerala we returned back to our hometown.

Visiting the Exceptional Dharmadam Island of Kerala as a Romantic Getaway from Kannur

An Enthralling Expedition to Illikal Kallu with My Best Friends

It is being a long time that I have packed my bags and went for an exploration. To be very frank I am such a person who loves to explore new places and discover the hidden gems in it. Usually, I used to plan solo trips. In my viewpoint solo trip makes you more courageous and helps you to understand more about the world and people. Till now I have visited many gorgeous places like Shimla, Manali, and Kulu in the north and in the south I have visited Kodaikanal, Meesapulimala, Vagamon, Munnar, Agasthyarkoodam. During my leisure time, I used to browse my social media accounts. And one day accidentally I came across a travelogue in Instagram. The travelogue was about trekking in one of the breath-taking hill stations called Illikal Mala in Kerala. More than the mountain it is the rock erected on the top of the mountain, Illikal Kallu lures every trekking enthusiast. The travelogue inspired me a lot. After trekking the famous hill station Agasthyarkoodam I decided to stop the exploration at least for a few months because I was assigned one of the toughest projects in my office and as a team lead I am supposed to dedicate my valuable time on it. But I don’t know how the images of Illikal Kallu changed my mind. The captivating images of the mountain propelled me to explore the place. As usual, I discussed my exploration of Illikal Kallu to my best friends. But to my surprise this time they expressed their desire to accompany them to the hill station. Even though I had decided to visit the place on my own, their wish changed my mind. Therefore we decided to avail of tour packages at cheap prices. We packed our bags for the trekking and also we carried a high-resolution camera with us. Before explaining about our trekking I would like to share some valuable information about the Illikkal Kallu.

kerala tour packages with price

Illikal Kallu is one of the captivating and scary hill station situated in 6000 ft above mean sea level in Meenachil taluk in Kottayam district. What makes the rock so amusing is half of the portion of the rock has been fallen apart. And the rest half is standing sturdy on top of the mountain. It will take three hours to reach the top of the mountain. Standing over there one could mesmerise the amusing panoramic view of the entire Kottayam district. With your sharp naked eyes, you can see a blue line indicating the presence of Arabian Sea. In adverse climatic conditions, it may not be visible. The Illikal Kallu is standing on three consecutive mountains. The first hill takes the shape of an umbrella and hence the hill is called as ‘Kuda Kallu’. People say that the hill consists of ‘neela koduveli’, a blue flower. The plant carries many medicinal properties and it is one of the most valuable medicinal plants in the world. The local residents tell that keeping the plant in houses will bring good harvest, prosperity and also it could cure any kind of disease on the earth.

Due to the presence of a small hunch on the second hill, it looks like a mushroom and hence the hill is called as ‘Koonu Kallu’. Across the rock, one could find two paths and their names are really interesting ‘narakapalam’ and ‘swargavathil’- ‘heaven’s door’. The two hills are connected by the narakapalam-‘a bridge to hell’. The bridge is named so because it is situated at a great height somewhat 4000m above mean sea level. Even though the path is scary it provides mesmerising images of emerald valleys and surroundings. The narakapalam leads you to an amazing part of nature which looks like heaven and thus the region is known as ‘swargavathil’. Some of the eye-catching attractions of the region are Illaveezhapoonchira, Kattikayam waterfalls, and Healthacation.

We reached Kottayam railway station and our tour guide was desperately waiting for us by holding our name cards. We kept our luggage in the cab and started our journey to Illikal Kallu. The journey was really awesome. After 2 hours of journey, we reached the spot. Our tour guide parked the vehicle half the way. Over there we saw many adventure enthusiasts getting ready for the trekking. We started our adventure. We started to ascend to the mountain and gradually the fog began to cover the premises. It became difficult for us. As time passed the fog became so thick that we were not able to see the person standing adjacent to us. Thousands of thanks to God finally we found a small rock where we all sat and waited for the fog to disappear. By 11.30 the sun began to shine brighter and slowly it unveils the region for us. We continued our exploration. We were so happy. After covering a few distances we used to pose for group photos and also selfies. Words are insufficient to express the beguiling charm of the surrounding nature. The whole premises will be surrounded by fog and dark clouds in the early evening. Seeing our fun activity our tour guide requested us to move fast so that we could return before the sunsets. This time we were very serious and without any break we ascended to the top of Illikal Kallu. The moment we reached the top of the mountain we screamed like a small child and expressed our joy. We were so happy and clicked a group selfie by keeping our fingers in ‘v’ shape- indicating victory. The hilltop provided mind-blowing images. We also visited the famous rock by crossing the scary and dangerous narakapalam. There were many a time when we supposed to fell down while crossing the bridge, each time we held each other’s arms firmly. After spending a few hours over there, we slowly descended to the slopes. The next day we also visited the famous mountain located near to Illikal Kallu, Illaveezhapoonchira. It is a valley surrounded by trees. And the most astonishing part is no leaves fall into the valley!kerala holiday packages

An Unplanned Marriage and a Planned Honeymoon to Alleppey

I never thought of marriage in my life. I was very passionate and dedicated to my goals. I used to tell my parents I won’t agree for any marriage proposal until I achieve my goals. I belong to a simple orthodox family. The place where I reside is completely a replica of TV soap operas. With a lot of dreams and thoughts, I decided to pursue my graduation in engineering. The 4 years in an engineering college gifted memories that to be cherished in my early 50s and 60s. Like every student, I prepared very hard for job interviews, especially for campus placement. Unfortunately, I was eliminated in the pre-final round of campus placement. For a moment I lost my hope and the firm belief from god. I lost my confidence because most of my friends got good jobs in good companies and only a few remained jobless in my class and unluckily I belong to the latter group. Gradually I regained my hope and started to appear for several campus interviews. Within a couple of months, I enrolled myself in a software training course and as soon as I finished my course I was absorbed into one of the best start-ups companies in my state.

After a completing 6-months probationary period, my parents started to brainwash me and propelled me to get married as society is blaming them for keeping a young girl in the house. I burst out on them and clearly told only after two years I will get married. My decision was not digestible for them. For time being they remained silent. I again started to concentrate on my work. Day by day my work schedules became stressful and hectic. Sometimes I used to reach home late nights. This increased fear in my parents. They somehow wanted to finish their obligations and wanted to relax. This time through one of my relative our parents got a marriage proposal from a well-reputed family. I tried my hard to convince them. But this time they were very stubborn about their decision. As I had no other alternate I was forced to obey their commands. I really did not want to get married so soon. Therefore I did not dress well. I wore a simple dress and did not apply any kind of make-up on my face. By 10 am they reached our house. The guy was accompanied by his parents and aunt. After the official conversation, I was invited to the living room. For the initial few minutes, I did not look at them. Then I slowly raised my head and greeted them. To my surprise the guy was handsome and he and his family were well-mannered.  We all were impressed by their pleasing attitude. I was wondering how I could reject their proposal. I tried my level best but I did not find any genuine reason for the same. When they left my parents told me that they liked the family and they really wanted me to agree for the same. They also created an emotional drama so that I support their decision. I was really trapped. I cannot oppose my parents. And eventually, I agreed for the marriage. I wanted a time gap of at least 2 months prior to marriage so that I could talk to him and understand him. But the astrologer told us the perfect time for marriage is within a month or else we will have to wait till next year.

Attappadi – An Exquisite Destination for a Splendid Romantic Vacation

As we were nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts we always wanted to celebrate our romantic days in any of the scenic places in India. It was three months ago I got hitched to a software engineer working in a multinational company in Bangalore. Within a month I also travelled to Bangalore. In a couple of weeks, I got a job in a multinational company. Things were going smoothly. We were enjoying our newly married life. Our wedding photographer called us and told that our wedding album is ready. We were eagerly waiting for our wedding album. He told us that he handed over the album in my hubby’s house. I was not able to control my anxieties. We thought of visiting our hometown on the coming weekend. But unfortunately due to some issues in our offices we were not able to make the trip. Hence again for one more week we desperately waited for the week. Finally, without any hazards, we safely reached my hometown. The moment I entered my hubby’s house without getting fresh I suddenly ran to my mother-in-law and inquired for my wedding album. She played many tricks on me such as she tried to convince me that the photographer failed to give the album and so on. But I was not ready to believe in her pranks and finally, she admitted her failure and gave me the album. Soon from where I don’t know my husband came and tried to grab the album, from my hands but I somehow defeated me and ran to my bedroom and closed the door. My husband was knocking at the door. I know that the wedding album must be seen together, therefore, I opened the door and started to view the album together. We really enjoyed our betrothal and wedding pictures. We were looking stunning. The outdoor shooting of us was speechless. After viewing the album suddenly my hubby asked me “when are we going for the honeymoon trip?” I replied, “when we both are free”. For lunch one of my hubby’s cousins joined us. Just like us he also got recently married. We really had friendly moments with him. While discussing several topics he inquired about our honeymoon trip. “We haven’t gone anywhere”  my hubby replied. “What about you?” asked my hubby to his cousin? Two weeks ago they had their most awaited honeymoon trip at Attappadi. ‘Attappadi’ where is this place I asked him. It is a place in Kerala. What is the peculiarity of the place I asked him? It is an amalgamation of hill slopes, plantations, rivers, and bio reserves. It is an abode of enjoyment and excitement he replied. We asked him to tell the specialities of Attappadi. Without any hesitation, he started to explain it.

Is there anyone who does not like to unveil the elegance of emerald nature? How would it be if one starts his or her day with innocent chirps of adorable birds? Isn’t it would be pleasing? Many times I have thought who assigned them the duty of wakening up all the animals, trees and humans. Do they get the wages for doing so? Or is it a kind of thanksgiving to the almighty for giving one more day on the planet. Whenever I see the thickly populated trees in the forests I always think who waters them and who look after them. It is not possible for a few people to look after the trees regularly. Still, it survives on the earth for a half a century. The wild animals in the forest never have experienced starvation for more than a couple of days. Somehow they will get their food.

For long years women were not allowed to climb to the top of the hill as the Agasthya muni was celibate i.e. Bhramachary and intervention of women will affect the purity of the mountain. But 2 years ago the ban on women climbing the hill was removed and in January 2019 the first lady to conquer the mountain was Dhanya Sanal. Followed to her 100 women registered their names for trekking to the Agasthyarkoodam hill. There is also a story revolving around the hill is when all the sages (munis or maharishis) went to Himalaya for attending the wedding of Lord Shiva and Lord Parvathi the tilt to one side. Then Lord Shiva insisted Agasthya Muni to go the southern portion and balance the earth. He obeyed the commands. Gradually he liked the place and decided to reside there.

Unveiling the Hidden Gem of Kottayam- Mango Meadows with My Better Half

I don’t know how to start writing. I rethink it is the 5th time I am trying to pen down my romantic days in limited words. Don’t think that I wrote one or two words in my last 4 attempts and then deleted it. More than a paragraph I wrote and then I thought the words are inappropriate or the introduction is not good without rethinking I just pressed the backspace key. After refreshing for a while I reattempted the task. I hope this time it may work. It is a normal custom that newly married couples plan an exotic honeymoon trip soon after their wedding. But for us, we planned our honeymoon after a year! Isn’t it strange? Whenever we share our honeymoon stories with our friends they used to wonder and ask what were you guys doing till then. And I hope after reading this you may also have asked the same question in your mind. To quench your anxiety I will explain the reason.

Kerala tour packages with price

The main obstacle for our honeymoon was our ‘job’. We both were working in a reputed multinational company. Soon after marriage like an ordinary couple, we weaved many destinations for our romantic trip but fate betrayed us. Suddenly my husband was assigned to do a project in the United States of America. With a broken heart, we accepted our destiny. The project was only for 6 months. After 184 days my hubby returned and we again started planning our pending romantic trip. But again destiny started testing our patience this time I got an assignment in the United Arab Emirates for half a year. For securing my job I was forced to accept the order. It was very hard for us to live without each other. I moved to the UAE. I started to countdown each day. Finally, I returned back. Each time when we successfully pass the tests given by destiny, destiny itself will reward us with precious gifts in return and it was true in our case.

As I am friendly in nature I never felt any kind of difficulty interacting with people whom I have never met before. When I was in the United Arab Emirates one of my colleagues who hailed from Kerala, a state in south India (NB: The majority of the population of the UAE is Malayalee), was very friendly to me. We shared all our personal stories. One day accidentally I got a chance to view her honeymoon pictures. To be very frank the pictures were really awesome. For a moment I thought the place will be somewhere outside India. I inquired her about her honeymoon destination. She with little shy told me that it was none other than Kerala. According to me, Kerala was a state comprised of only tranquil backwaters and breathtaking hill stations. It was hard for me to believe they celebrated their first love in a park. They mainly concentrated the Mango Meadows of Kottayam district of Kerala for sowing their first seeds of romance. I also asked her does she had any relatives or friends over there. They don’t have anyone in Kerala it was through the travel agency called Dream Holidays that helped them to make their honeymoon trip fabulous. They availed of their tour packages online. On returning to Delhi I discussed the same to my husband. He was very happy and agreed to purchase the packages.

The best time to visit the Mango Meadows is from September to March. By mid of January, we purchased the package. On reaching Cochin International Airport from Delhi Airport our tour representative greeted us with a garland made of lotus and also they applied a paste made out of sandalwood on our forehead. For a moment we thought after a year of marriage we again became bride and groom. From the airport, it took more than an hour to reach Kottayam district. On reaching Mango Meadows our tour representative guided us to lake resort. As we were very hungry we had lunch first and then we moved to our room. Words are insufficient to describe the relishing taste of food. Till then I had only seen varieties of cuisines in luxurious hotels but it was for the first time I am seeing this in the resort. By the evening we started our excursion. We first selected the shikari boating. We had already booked for the same while purchasing the packages, therefore, we didn’t have to waste our time getting the passes. Boating through the mangrove forests gave us a scintillating experience which we never had experienced before. Apart from boating, there were many couples who were engaged in various activities like shooting, cycling, badminton and archery and so on.

There are many interesting things to enjoy and see. Our tour guide told us that the Biodiversity Park sprawls in an area of 30 acres with more than 4,800 varieties of flowering plants, 780 types of trees, and 174 species of fruits. The man-made park was constructed under the leadership of Mr. M Kurian. He is a true nature lover and took 14 years to build this park. In the park, we could not only see honeymoon couples but also many families and youngsters who come there to explore the serenity of the park. Most of the family bring their kids to the park for a picnic. It is the only place in Kerala where parents and children could enjoy their time in their own way.  As the parks consist of amusement parks for children and secluded areas for adults both can discover the gem hidden in nature in their way. As we wanted to spend a night in treehouse we asked our tour guide to make slight changes in the packages. And he agreed for it. Words are insufficient to express the feeling of spending a night in the midst of forests. we began our next day by hearing the meticulous chirp from birds.

We also rowed in ‘Kotta vanchi’ (basket boat). We were afraid of whether it will break. But it was strong as a pillar. We also did fishing and fed food to the fishes while we were in the lake resort. It is the belief of Hindus that feeding fishes are like feeding to Lord Vishnu. We then moved to ‘Sarppa Kavu’. It is a place where serpents rest. It regarded as a sacred place by Hindus. People from various places come here to worship the serpents. It is believed that serpents have the magical power to cure wounds and illnesses of all kinds. There are many more places in the park. The park is actually divided into various sections such as Bird sanctuary. Over here we captured the beautiful images of varieties of birds in our camera the authorities have allocated special benches to sit and mesmerize the beauty of birds. Animal husbandry and Plant nursery is another place that helps to study more about nature. Nakashtraval is the place where people can find trees related to their Malayalam Zodiac sign. Bible Statute is another eye-catching place. The Bible is placed on a long wooden structure with its centre page opened.

After spending two days in Mango Meadows we moved to other places to explore the beauty of Kottayam. Places like Bay Island Drift Museum, St. Mary’s Orthodox Church (it is built-in Hindu architectural style), Poonjar Palace, and many more. After 4 days we departed to Delhi by carrying sweet memories and sweet gifts for our relatives and friends.
