A Tour to Three Alluring Destinations of Kerala

The days were getting monotonous and I and my friends wanted to get out of the usual routine and start everything anew. So, all of us gathered together at my place as we had planned in our Whatsapp group. We were all working in Chennai and only I have travelled across India for long trips. So, the plan was to visit an alluring destination which is cheap and have got many attractive places to visit. For convenience, we agreed on visiting Kerala which was near and there were travel packages that were the cheapest. We wanted this tour to be perfectly planned and found Dream Holidays to do this for us. I did extensive research on all the best destinations in Kerala and I am listing out the places that I found attractive and worth visiting. This may help you in visiting this state on the southern side of Kerala. Take a look to find out the fascinations where you can visit with the savings you have. The list contains places we have visited and will visit for our next trip. It will take weeks or even a month to have some quality time at this place with immense things to explore and be a part of. From Chennai, we took only 80 minutes to reach the Cochin International Airport. A note to the newly-weds- all of these places are perfect for a honeymoon trip too.

Munnar, if you want greenery and high hills:

Kerala tour packages with price

Go straight to Idukki district in Kerala if you want adventures and peace at the same place. This hill station has got what every traveller would need. The plantations are the trump cards here – be it tea, coffee or spices like cardamom, the place has got plenty. Munnar is also the best location to get an ayurvedic rejuvenation therapy. With the moderate climate that Kerala enjoys and Munnar with its forests at places like Kannan Devan Hills, there are many resorts and spas set here at this place popular for tea estates. We enjoyed at the Top Station by setting a campfire in the evening and this place shares borders with Tamil Nadu too providing with a brilliant view of the Western Ghats. Always get sweaters, warm clothes and trekking shoes if you want to set out for an adventurous experience. Also, get a guide or a trainer who can help you with trekking and paragliding at Chithirapuram. Trust me, this experience will be worth every penny you are investing for this trip. From Kochi where the nearest airport to Munnar is located, it would take about 1.30 hours and from the airport, it takes only about an hour to reach.  The Tea Museum at Nallathani Estate has got every information about the inception of tea making at this place (Get some fresh tea powder to your home). To enter here we paid a price of 75 Rs and a price of 20 Rs for clicking some pictures. To talk about the food here, try the vegetable dishes and my personal favourite were idli with sambar. Get a cab or taxi for your convenience in visiting the routes that are quite challenging. We had rented bikes for which we paid around 300 Rs for a day.

Alleppey, for the marine lover in you:

Kerala travel packages

After the sightseeing at Munnar, we left at night to Alleppey and took us 1.30 hours to reach and we dozed off at once we reached our resort (I will talk about my Kochi tour later). With its beaches and backwater destinations, Alleppey is known as the “Venice of the East”. The houseboat cruise that started around noon when the climate was warm is the best in Kerala. There are places like Kumarakom and Kasargod as our travel operator said. On our next tour, we want to explore those places too. When we reached the Kuttanad area, our houseboat took a halt to take us to this area where farming was done below sea level. We could not visit the coir factory and museum where most of the women in the village worked. The rate of the houseboat with 5-star amenities starts from the price of 7, 500 Rs. We went to Alleppey Beach and spent about 2 hours there. Get some sunscreen safety while visiting. The taste of the lip-smacking seafood varieties and toddy is making my mouth water right now. Vembanad Lake and Pathiramanal are other places that intrigued us.

Kochi, the land of arts and colours:

kerala packages

Kochi, we reached here on the first day of our trip and I was saving the best one for the last account. I will start with the varieties of cafes and restaurants here. The Kashi Art Cafe, Farmers Cafe, Casa Linda, Hotel Seagull and Brunton Boatyard are my favourites from where we had the best European and seafood dishes. Kochi with its moniker as “Queen of the Arabian Sea” is providing ferry services to places like Fort Kochi, Vypin and so on at a price that was not more than 10 Rs. This is one place in Kerala where many art exhibitions like Kochi-Muziris Biennale happens. The heritage building known as the Aspinwall House is open during this time which is a famous location that has appeared in many movies. To stroll near the water attractions, there is Marine Drive which is also the place from where we did an extensive and heavy shopping for hours. There are other malls like Lulu Mall which gets placed in almost all tour packages to Kerala. Fort Kochi Beach is a perfect place for families to get together and enjoy. Mattancherry Palace and Hill Palace are other places that have got a lot to see by paying smaller amounts depending on age. All of these places can be visited by availing packages at with offers and affordable price.

There are other places like Wayanad which is a hub of wildlife with its ravishing greenery. Places like Thekkady with wildlife reserves in its national parks. Bamboo rafting is another experience that I am not going to miss for the next Kerala tour.

Some of the Best Popular and Not-so-popular Tourist Spots of Kerala

People often wonder how they can go on a fulfilling tour without having to spend too much. Travelling is in fact a need as taking occasional short brakes is a way of recharging oneself. But many times, the cost of travel become a problem and when finally people succeed in finding a less expensive place to go, it may not be actually worth going. From my experience of travelling, the best answer in such cases is to tour Kerala. A Kerala tour package generally, comes with a budget price and will present you with an unforgettable experience. When I say Kerala I am sure the first picture that comes to your mind would be that of a multitude of coconut trees. It’s indeed true but Kerala is much more than that. Kerala has so many well-known tourist places and a wealth of unknown and untouched spots too.

kerala tour packages with price

The most popular tourist spots in Kerala are the hill station of Munnar, Kovalam and Varkala beach, backwaters of Alleppey and Ashtamudi and Chembra peak of Wayanad. The hill station of Munnar is so beautiful with its green velvety hills resulting in lovely valleys and meadows, fresh streams and rich wildlife. Tata tea museum is another tourist attraction of Munnar where the process of making tea is explained by its staff in detail. It’s a very interactive place so that you can clarify your doubts about tea making too. In addition, there are Tata tea’s outlets available in the tea museum where you can buy various types of tea such as white tea, rose tea, masala tea etc. Kovalam and Varkala are two major beach destinations in Kerala. You may find it a bit touristy but yet exciting. These beaches are so pleasing to the eyes with sparkling silver waters fringed with lush green coconut trees and are great for surfing and swimming. The moderate climate of Kerala also makes it a great place to visit. There are a lot of sunbeds and beach umbrellas available where you can leisurely lie down and get sun-kissed. Chembra peak in Wayanad is a wonder itself as nobody knows how nature was able to carve a perfectly heart-shaped pond in its valley. The pond is cloud studded with crystal clear water where you can catch a glimpse of you just as in a mirror. Wayanad however, is not only famous for its Chembra peak. There are also a few other tourist attractions in Wayanad. Pookot lake in Wayanad is a natural freshwater lake where self-paddling boating facility is available. Banasura Sagar Dam is the biggest earth dam in India and the second biggest in Asia. Undisturbed and housed among the mighty mountains, the view is an ultimate thing of beauty to the eye. Either you can walk all the way up or take the jeep service to reach the top of it. Muthanga wildlife sanctuary is yet another tourist spot in Wayanad which is very close to the Karnataka border and if you are lucky you will spot some wild animals.

I think it would be a great idea to explore some of the not-so-popular scenic places too. Some tour operators like Dream Holidays allows you to customize your tour package according to your requirements. Coupling your tour package with some of the less popular spots will unquestionably enable you to enjoy a unique experience. I will list down some of the secluded and untouched mind-blowing tourist spots and you can choose among them which are the ones you would like to pay a visit :

Vagamon Hills

Kerala tour travel

Vagamon is a hill station in Kerala which is just 100 km from Kochi. Pine forest of Vagamon is a famous picnic spot where you can sit beneath the pine trees with your family or friends and enjoy some home-cooked food. Thangalpara is also very famous in Vagamon and it would be very exciting to climb it following the yellow arrows given en route. However, when you reach its top, the satisfaction you experience would be beyond words. Maramala waterfall is also a precious asset of Vagamon which cascades from a height of 60 meters amid dense rubber plantations. Nevertheless, Vagamon is also suitable for the adrenaline junkies who look forward to indulging in some adventure activities such as ballooning and paragliding.

Ramakalmedu is a beautiful state in Kerala, very close to Munnar. It is a very secluded place that you get to enjoy some time in the lap of nature. The giant stone statue of a man and woman is the highlight of the place. Nearby that exists a mandapam made of granite too. However, nobody knows who built it and for what purpose and this mystery adds a distinct charm to it. However, the strong winds that blow through the hills are what makes it the most desirable. You could also spot some windmills over the hills.

Ponmudi is a hill station of the Western Ghats which is roughly 60 km from Thiruvananthapuram. It’s to be noted that the most famous beach of Kerala, Kovalam beach and Ponmudi are close to the city of Thiruvananthapuram and hence you can visit one after the other. However, before writing about Ponmudi, I will describe Kallar, which is a spectacular place en route Ponmudi. There are two major must-visit spots here and they are the Golden valley and Meenmutty waterfalls. It is also a great place for bird watchers.

On reaching Ponmudi, you will definitely appreciate its uniqueness and beauty. The thick vegetation, chirping of birds, enthusiastically flowing streams – all together, make the day of any travel bug. Tea gardens of Ponmudi are not functional today, but they do represents that bygone era and oozes out that historical charm.

Valiyaparamba is already nicknamed as the unexplored backwaters of Kerala. Valiyaparamba is actually an island with backwaters on one side and beach on the other. It would be an awesome experience to see and experience the two wonders of nature at the same time. Also, the place is very sparsely populated and therefore it presents you with a charming solitude. Valiyaparamba is in fact, the best place to enjoy some quiet time with nature.

 Silent valley 

cheap and best kerala tour packages

Silent valley is located in the Palakkad district of Kerala. It’s actually a national park and the evergreen forest is absolutely beautiful. The dense forest will undoubtedly make you awestruck. The climate is also cool and crisp and allows you to spend as much time there without getting tired. The national park is also home to some of the endangered species like Lion-tailed macaque and Nilgiri langurs.

In fact, it’s observed recently that most of the Kerala tour packages are booked from Delhi. This is because Delhi is the capital city of India and number of flights operate between Delhi and all the other states of India and other countries of the world. Once you reach Delhi, Kerala is only a matter of three hours via air. So, starting your tour from Delhi will be a convenient option for you especially if you are coming from a distant state or country.

Unleash some travelling hacks to plan a budget-friendly trip to Kerala


The lowest cost travel is the best way to travel safely. No matter how much you plan, you may find that expenses are shooting up. If you are careful about avoiding certain things, you can reduce your travel costs. Kerala is the most budget-friendly state in India to travel and here, cheap packages for tours are available for the travellers. It is a common misunderstanding that we must spend more to travel safely in Kerala but there are some travel hacks, unlocking which one can have a budget-friendly tour. Your responsibility to save money starts the moment you plan for a tour and always avoid last-minute preparations and bookings. When you are travelling in Kerala, let’s see what costs are needed.

Choose Vegetarian food in your travel

Kerala is famous for traditional food and the benefit of choosing vegetarian food amidst your travel is that it is clean, cheap as well as safe. If you are a first-time flight traveller, then chose vegetarian food as being healthy throughout the journey is necessary and if you are having a vegetarian meal in Kerala then you are less prone to food poison. The tastes may differ from place to place but the expense is less and also prime concern must be given to cleanliness.

Bargain while shopping

The small shop vendors are targeting foreigners and thus charge more than double for a product. If you dig out your talent in bargaining then you can get a product with half of its price. Thus bargaining allows you to shop more items or gifts to take back home for your dear and near ones. Always keep in mind that the shops at various tourist locations are actually targetting foreigners to take more money. The actual price of the product is less than half of its mentioned price.

Check out the hotel at morning itself

We know accommodation is the most expensive part of a tour and but in Kerala, some of the cheapest tour packages allow you to stay with a reasonable price but then too you can minimise the expense by planning a check out from the hotel or resort at morning. By doing so, you don’t have to pay for the rest of the day and in the meantime enjoy the day’s trip and plan like returning back at same day itself. On the way, there are many refreshment building where you can have a change.

 Traveling Off Season 

Traveling in Season will always be very expensive. Offseason is very cost effective. At this time, the accommodation charges will be very low and you can avail any services with much ease. The flight tickets, food and other charges on tourist activities will be minimum then. In Kerala, monsoon seasons are meant to be the offseason and houseboat packages are also very low at this time. Also, it is the best time to undergo ayurvedic treatments.

 Avoid souvenir shop in your travel

These souvenir shops are meant for foreigners and thus they will not charge less for any products. For foreigners, these shops and the products are really worth and they will not compromise money for these products. Thus avoid shopping at such shops as never expect bargaining can work there. Instead, shop at the street and get the discounts. These products are more profitable in local markets. In local markets, always try to shop late. If you shop near the shop during closing in the evening, you can shop at very low rates.

currency-exchange-restaurantKeep the currency with you instead of keeping digital money while travelling

Money can be considered as a currency. The lack of ATMs and using of credit card or debit cards at certain shops or for transport can make you in trouble. We often hear that avoid keeping currency while travelling but if you are travelling Kerala, keep the currency notes with you as in Kerala, certain shops or services will not take cards. But you can install Paytm in case of need.

Traveling together to reduce your expenditure

There is no doubt that the cost is very low when you are travelling in group or together. At accommodations, entry tickets, boating you can save money if you are travelling together. The accommodation can be made at sharing basis even food too. If you are coming from private vehicles, the petrol charges can be shared. The day when you leave, prepare food in your house itself and on the way take a halt and have the homely food. This will reduce the food expense at one time and also is a part of the fun. In fact, in group tours to Kerala, some of the tour packages will charge discounts and the price will be lower. Always consult your travel operator and discuss the discount amount you can get while you are travelling in groups.

Use the local transportation facility to the maximum

It is best to use local transportation facility in smaller cities where you can connect. Such travels will also make it possible for the travellers to get a clear understanding of places and locations. In local transportation, the charges are very low and on the way, you can interact with other locals regarding the places. It will easily teach you places.

Do not Believe in Brochures 

Do not Believe in the Brochures that Travel Agency and Agents provide you with no mention of correct details. The brochures that are presented in an incredible way can be amended on your own with places you know which are so attractive. Prior to booking any package look for the lowest prices always but with more attractions. Travel agents can play the trick by adding locations that are not worthy of watching.

Choose Guest rooms for accommodation

Guest rooms are charged with less price and will be having all amenities and services. To save your wallet, guest houses can help you. Don’t worry if you haven’t got an accommodation at last minute, consult with your local advisor and make them arrange a guest house.

Use flights wisely

If flight travel is your mode of comfortability, then you can book one but look for certain websites which provide ticket with less price. Also, at off-season, the price will be lower. Another idea to reduce the flight charges is that, if your travel is confirmed for a particular day then book the flight tickets about 1 or 3 months before.


temple food

Eat temple food amidst your pilgrimage tour 

If you are travelling to pilgrimages, you can save money. Many pilgrim centres provide food for free or low feeds for those who reach there in the afternoon and at night. In such a scenario, the costs can be reduced to a good price. The food will be safe and tasty too.

Above given are some of the tips that can be utilised for figuring out a budget-friendly tour as money is precious and we must spend it wisely. Travelling expenses are really high than our expectation but proper planning and determination can overcome the situation. Kerala is the cheapest place to conduct holidays but still, understanding these travelling hacks can benefit you at any point in your life.


Periyar: Where We Fell For The Most Comfortable Natural Habitat Of Animals.

Kerala remains favorite to all the travelers who have been to the place at least once in their lifetime. It is, in short, a destination where nature speaks for itself. It makes a hub where the travelers get to explore the wilderness in sheer excitement. This excitement was something that packed up my family every year at that point in time where I and my sibling have holidays and my parents have off from work. Most of the holidays we traveled to Kerala as my moms ancestral house was located at Alleppey right by the backwaters. So we never had to be on a backwater journey as such but every alternate year we visited Kerala, we always made sure that we visited one place of significance. Palakkad, Thrissur, Kozhikode had all been covered through the Kerala tour package from Bangalore. This time we had planned something new where we would get to enjoy more of the richness of nature by being at one single place which was Thekkady.

It had got colder at Bangalore and was one of the best weather I loved to be there but there was no other time all of us were free to escape to Kerala due to which we got into the train to Alleppey from where we got to set off to our locality as we always took my moms parents along with us whenever we travelled around in Kerala. And then we hired a vehicle in which we drove 140 kilometers where we reached Thekkady. We had booked 2 rooms in the resort where we were looking forward to having another best holiday at Kerala. It was astonishing that there were a number of places worth paying a visit located in this Gods own country. The resort was worth the money we had to spend on it as we had taken luxury rooms. As of my dads and moms opinion, they always insisted that we spend holidays in luxury as the rest of the days all of us are working hard. So if it is for two days, make the most out of it. We had reached at 6 pm in the evening that there was nothing much for us to do in the evening. The resort was more of a hangout place where we spend time by the pool that had hammocks and pool lounge chairs. The night went by where we had the best family time. We ordered food in the night that 6 of us could consume as no money goes wasted on food that is unconsumed. We all got early to bed as the next day, early in the morning we would set off to Periyar National Park. More than the fact that it was a wildlife sanctuary, it is also a tiger reserve which made the place more interesting to me.

I had taken everything required which included binoculars, shoes, repellent creams as I had a notion in my mind that it would literally be a walk through the wild. The entry time to the place was from 6 am to 5 pm which was probably why we had been standing at the doorsteps by 5:50 am with our entry passes in our hands. The passes were just 25 rupees and did not seem to be costly at all except for the foreigners. After having some quick bites and coffee, we got inside.  My maternal grandparents had been all healthy and they seemed as enthusiastic as me to be on the nature walk. We hired a guide who we thought would be more helpful in taking us through the several activities that take place inside. Jungle scout, Tiger Trail, Nature walk, Border trekking and a lot more of exploration was possible inside the sanctuary. The most exciting to me was bamboo rafting where we would be set on a three-hour journey through the wildest place ever.  A large number birds that would count up to 230 reside inside the sanctuary. I had already begun sighting some while the sounds of the other animals had been reaching to all us. And all of us a sudden, I was reminded of Bannerghatta in Bangalore where we had once gone. In fact, this was the second national park I had been visiting.

The nature walk took us through the trees and plants that had been there. Both my mom and grandmom were quite into planting that they got immersed in the walk completely. I had already been on nature walks with school squad when I had been at Bangalore but none of it seemed close to what I had been experiencing here. By 11 am, we set off on the bamboo for rafting. We took two rafts and decided to move in the same direction. The literal hope I had in my mind was to see elephants in the banks. We went through trees that surrounded us on one side and on the other side we could to see grasslands. We went long where the rafters spoke to us about the sanctuary. The freshness of both the Periyar Lake and the surroundings were quite reviving to all of us. Also, we had safety guards where all of were in life jackets. When we reached a point we decided to return back. I saw jackals and jungle cats that had been on the shores. The fun fact was how all the animals lived their lives in the natural habitat of forests. We have to pay a lot of money to see them in cages at the zoo which I always found to be the most disgraceful way of making money. Here we could see them stride happily and that was what made all of us happy. On the way back, we also got to see a herd of elephants that had been sipping water from the lake. I had seen elephants before a lot of time where those that had been crossing roads at Bandipur when we had been on our way from Banglore, had been the most exciting but this sight took its place.

We got back and walked through along with the guide where he showed us the paws of the tiger. It had been an imprint on the mud and a way through which they got back setting on their prey. The guide said that this was the main reason that the sanctuary closed by 5 pm as the tigers and other animals would get out on hunting as the darkness falls and so safety measures are always to be taken.  The natural habitat was indeed so much more fun than I had thought it would turn out to be. It was 5 pm and we were out on time.The single-day exploration had come to an end but our Kerala trip was still on. There was some more scope for us where we could be sitting alongside the Vembanad lake and tossing in some spicy Seafood alongside the fresh toddy where we did not have to spend a single penny on it. And we would be taking catamaran rides to go across as well where we would still feel touristy on a 3 rupee service until we get back to Bangalore. This other part of life is hence something that is worth treasuring for a life where we can live with a stipulated amount of money but we choose to be different. The village life is worth an experience when on a Kerala tour package with the price. It is, in short, a journey of realization of what we have on the other side of the coin.


Recently, I had a visit to Bangalore for an interview. Since I am from the capital city of Kerala, Trivandrum, my journey was awesome and I had some couple of my friends at Bangalore. After the interview, which went smooth, I had a meet up with my friends, sharing some cups of cappuccino. In our conversation, I caught up something that, even though the life in the IT hub of India seems interesting, jolly and enthusiastic, there is a darker side to it. Actually, my friends needed a change and rejuvenation of the mind. What I can suggest is a trip with friends or family, inflicting a feeling of ‘Out of the world’. My friends are actually beach lovers, so I suggested one of the top beach destination in Kerala, lying at my very own homeland, Trivandrum, which is Kovalam. Kovalam is a haven of serenity and the best place to hang out with friends, family or spouse. It is easy to reach from Bangalore as there are flights from Bangalore to Kerala landing at Trivandrum International Airport. A smooth travel can be achieved if tour packages are picked as it would include more places too. I have suggested some of the tour planners like Gogeo holidays where some authentic packages are prevalent to entice the tourists, and they will be giving awesome beach facing resorts for the stay.


Kovalam has the power to rejuvenate ourselves as the vibrant beachside is awesome to watch and spend time. Located about 16 kilometres from the city of Trivandrum, the ambience is free from the regular hassle of the city life. Kovalam is an international beach destination as there you can spot too many foreigners. Let us start the discussion of this vibrant piece of the seashore with its natural beauty and surroundings. Kovalam beaches are divided into three namely, Lighthouse, Eve’s beach and Samudra beach. These three beaches are separated by rocky out cuttings. Tourists can visit any of these beaches and bask in the sun. There is provision for the tourists to bask in the sunlight and chairs are provided for the same. Foreigners usually here opt for swimming, sunbathing and surfing. The reason for its placement in the tourist map of travellers across the world is due to the clean and bizarre surroundings, equipped with developed tourism facilities. To unwind yourselves, Kovalam is the best one. I am sure, it will be a perfect escape for my friends in Bangalore city. The climate is somewhat chill in Bangalore and at Kovalam, needed warmth can be provided to the skin. Some of my friends came with their family to Kovalam. A stay on the beach facing resorts is a dream of many, especially honeymoon couples.

Here, the majesty of the Arabian sea can be experienced and the water is clean and pristine, making the swimming extremely joyful to the tourists. When you come with your family, take a swim in the beach as it is the funniest part of Kovalam beach. Surfing is usually done on the beaches and necessary amenities will be provided. Taking into consideration of the safety of the beaches, guards are kept at each point so as to warn the tourists who enter deep into the sea. Eve’s beach is near to the lighthouse beach and since both are separated by a rocky promontory, the beauty of Kovalam will provide more option for the tourists. One can climb over the rock and watch the sea. The cool wind blowing from the sea is truly a rejuvenator. This spot is enjoyed more by the honeymoon couples and also kids love in climbing up the rock. Visit Kovalam with your family and make your children soak in the beach holidays. Owing to the safety and cleanliness, this beach is perfect for a family vacation and thus choosing Kerala family tour packages to Kovalam is the best idea. When visited during festive seasons, Kovalam will dress up in a festive mood and several fests like Village fair, elephant fair, Nishagandhi dance festival and Food festivals will be hosted. These festivals can entice people of every age and walks of life. These festivals are actually showcasing the cultural richness of Kerala and Swati Thirunal Musical festival is a great example.

There are too many food stalls, multi-cuisine restaurants facing the sea and delicious seafood are served there. If spicy Indian snacks like Panipuri, Bhelpuri, chat masala, chilly filled pineapple and mango pieces with the flavours of juicy items are your tastes, then head for a local stall placed in the beach shores. Coming to the activities that can be done in the Kovalam beaches, water adventures are the prime one. Swimming, surfing are some of the common water adventures and since it is the most sought tourist destination, Ayurveda and health centres are prevailing on the beach shores. Undergo some rejuvenation therapies to calm your mind. I have suggested this to my friends so that the hectic lifestyle of the Bangalore can be dealt with the magic of Ayurveda. Are you a shopping freak? Then the beach facing stalls in Kovalam is all yours. One can buy a handful of handicrafts, clothing, beach wears, hats and antiques with reasonable prices. Lighthouse beach is where a tall lighthouse is placed near to the sea and it has provision to allow visitors to reach up to the top and watch all sides of the Kovalam beach. The rocky promontory between lighthouse beach and eve’s beach is called Edakallu and people love watching the sunset from this rock. Settle in any of the rock formation and watch the biding sun. The changing colour of the sky during twilight is a must to watch.

Nightlife in Kovalam is what everyone should watch. Evenings are meant for blasting in Kovalam and the bars, restaurants are fully awake to serve the same. Live music with delicious eateries are provided by some restaurants and to involve in other social entertainment, several bars are open in the night. With dance, fun and music, enjoy the delicious cuisine under the night sky. The nearby attractions around Kovalam include Karamana stream and the boating there. Reach at Thiruvallam vessel club offering activities like kayaking trips, cruise trips and windsurfing. A trip to Kovalam will family or friends can increase your bonding and is the most suggested place to unwind yourselves. For employees working in a busy metropolitan city in India like Bangalore, can make a travel here. In fact, if I get tensed on some issues, the visit to Kovalam can revive me and give me the strength to counter the issue. Thus, soon give Kovalam an entry to your travel itinerary to Kerala.


An escape from the capital city of India to Kerala

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” 
Kerala is a biodiversity hub where the people get to see a lot of tourist sites. As one travels through the ways here, he indulges into the mother nature and escapes into the wildernesses of the place. A lot of places hence house both flora and fauna which makes the whole ecosystem of the location. As one view the Gods own country from an airplane, all that he gets to see is either water or greenery of the land. In order to witness this one should surely come on a Kerala tour package with price that is affordable in which people can see the best destinations of the place. I decided to take the opportunity of visiting Kerala along with my friends from our office.  As the public holidays arrived, we decided to set on this trip from Delhi, to the other end of India.
We flew to the Kozhikode International airport as one among our team belonged to this district. It didn’t take us long to reach the place where he lived. We were treated quite well with biryanis and a lot of snacks and fruits. The journey had been quite tiring due to which I had almost everything that had been kept in front of me. At the end, my friend also served us Kozhikode Halwa which was indeed a delight to my stomach. In fact, the delicious food of Kerala welcomed us and we felt quite good in being welcomed that way.  We had already decided that we would be going to few places at Kozhikode, the next day in order to explore this Malabar region.
   The first place where we set to explore was the Thusharagiri waterfalls. In order to reach the falls, we had to trek up the hills. And we would never complain as anyone would feel like hiking here due to the plantations that surround the place. There were three hills located here which were the Erattumukku, Mazhavil Chattom, and Thumbithullum Para. As I walked, I could hear the sounds of insects and the humming of birds. I also got to see some birds which I had never spotted anywhere before. People had been growing pepper and other spices there. We reached the falls which had been cascading in grace. The view was amazing and it seemed to be flowing from nowhere. As we had come from Delhi we had not been to so many waterfalls. Even though there are few of them located in Rajasthan and Shimla we had to travel a long way to reach it. On being on this Kerala tour package from Delhi we had been on an escape trip. The major escape was from the pollution there due to which just being in these eco-spots were of joy to us. After sitting there and resting for some time, we clicked some pictures of the place.
           On trekking for half a day, people could reach the adjoining district which is Wayanad. But as our car had been waiting for us, we did not take that adventure and returned back to go to the next place on our list which was the Kakkayam dam. The aura of this place was more than just heart-warming. We went to the dam and took a short boat ride in it. Even though it was evening time we could feel the chilled air here on cruising through the dam. The trees still had the dewdrops falling beneath. Animals like goats and bisons had been grazing on the grass there. The whole view of the hills standing in between the grasslands was indeed amazing. After exploring the place, we left to the next place in between which we decided to have some food. The meals served here is quite special as they have both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The seafood served here is outstanding as the spices on it makes it taste good. We went to the Vellari Mala which belonged to both Kozhikode and Wayanad. This is indeed an awesome place to trek up the hills. We walked through for some time as the weather had been good even though it was noon time. The huge trees that had been there made the view more beautiful.  Finally, we went to the famous Kozhikode beach which seemed crowded even on a weekday.
   Quite a lot of snacks were being served there out of which we had tasted some as we were hunger stricken. In some time we went back as the next day we had decided to go to Wayanad. It took us approximately 3 hours to reach this beautiful land. The drive along the route itself seemed adventurous. On the sides of the road, I had seen deer that had been grazing. Wildlife sanctuaries and parks are located in this place After hogging some breakfast we decided to go to the Wayanad wildlife sanctuary. After taking the necessary instructions from the forest department we set inside with a guide who accompanied us. Endangered as well as exotic species resided in this hub of nature. We walked in without making noise as it would shoo away the animals around the place. We got to see some wild cats which we had never seen anywhere before. The animal seemed to be carefree of our presence. We also got the sight of some exotic birds which kept fluttering around. After spending almost 3 hours inside we got out and went to the Chembra peak for trekking. Wayanad seemed to be an amazing place to visit on a honeymoon.

There were quite a lot of places for the couples to visit here which we had avoided as we were more into trekking We had already suggested our couple friends from Delhi to visit this place for a memorable time. On coming on a Kerala honeymoon package from Delhi they could have privacy as well as peace compared to other crowded places. Also, there were not enough couple hangout places at the capital city. As we climbed up, we got to see a heart-shaped lake. Out of the places I had trekked in Kerala, this place seemed harder but totally worth as the sight ones to see from the top is priceless. It took us a long time to get back down. And had drained all the energy from us too. Hence we decided to stay over at a resort in Wayanad. The next day we went to the Kuruva Island. It was a small delta which had orchids all around it. Nature was purely at bliss as butterflies had been fluttering around which was a great sight. We had to get back to Kozhikode in order to fly back as our holidays were already over. So right after having some fun at Kuruva, we set back home.
      The specialty of Kerala indeed is not just the tourist destinations, but also the cuisines that are served to the people which call back any tourist to visit the place again. The accommodation sites here are also very welcoming where we get maximum comfort which helps in getting rid of travel sickness. Also, there are a number of destinations to visit and explore here which offers nature at its best. A trip through this land is hence the best option to take when planning to go on vacation with DreamHolidays.
