Discovering the Audacious Beauty of Kulathupuzha with Dear Ones

There are many places in the world that help people to enjoy their awesome leisure days with their dear ones. Can anyone tell which the most difficult task is for a person in the world? Is it to climb to the top of the mountain or to practise all kinds of adventurous activities? The answer may vary from person to person but for me, the answer is really something different. According to me the most tedious task in the universe is to explore the magnificent beauty of all the serene places situated in various corners of the world. The almighty Lord created the audacious planet in such a beautiful manner that we really hesitate to travel from one scenic place to another. It is my lifetime dream to enchant the audacious beauty of surreal nature glowing in various dimensions of the world. But due to financial constraints, I am always forced to postpone my dreams and wishes. It does not mean that I do not travel to fabulous places near to my hometown, Bangalore. In fact, I am a travel enthusiast and love to discover the beguiling beauty hidden in the nook and corners of the destination. At least twice or thrice I used to visit the unexplored beguiling tourist places in India either alone or with my close friends and cousins. Each time I used to enjoy the scintillating beauty of the marvelous places situated in my state. But this time I thought of witnessing the gorgeous beauty of the neighboring state called Kerala. Even though I am not so fluent in Malayalam I knew many salient features of the state through my Malayalee friends. As I am an adventure enthusiast my friends always used to tell me that I should definitely visit Kerala, because it is the only place where one could dig out immense opportunities to practise enthralling games. As I am not familiar with the state and the language I decided to avail of tour packages from Gogeo Holidays. I came to know about Gogeo Holidays from one of my friends who recently purchased their packages at cheap prices. Along with me two of my close friends also accompanied me to ‘god’s own country’.

Kerala tour packages

Encompassed with 14 scintillating districts the mind-blowing beauty of Kerala could not be described in singular words. Our itinerary was mainly concentrated on the southern parts of Kerala especially Kollam district. Kollam is actually known to be ‘home of varied species of cashew nuts’. Not only is the district blessed with immense beauty and irreplaceable resources of nature but also well-renowned with excellent hospitality services.  Due to its outstanding hospitality services, Kollam district is being adorned with a tagline such as ‘Kollam kandal illam venda’ which means ‘If you explore Kollam district and enjoy its hospitality services; you would definitely never return to your hometown’ in colloquial language. The tour package was for 2-3 days and we explored all the major tourist destinations. Among the several places, Kulathupuzha forest range attracted me a lot.

Kulathupuzha, located on the eastern sides of the capital city called Thiruvananthapuram is known to be a fusion of rubber plantations and dairy farms. To allure the stupendous beauty of the emerald places hundreds of travellers arrive in the region by purchasing the tour packages to Kerala. It is not the first destination we were visiting in Kerala. Actually the moment we stepped into the state we practised the various forms of adventurous events by visiting the breathtaking places and hills stations. As we were really tired we thought of exploring a scenic place where we could unwind and revitalize. Therefore, it was our tour guide you took us to Kulathupuzha forest range. Spread in an area of 1000 sq. km Kulathupuzha attracts hundreds of nature lovers every year. The forest range is known to be home to various types of trees such as wet evergreen, semi-evergreen and moist deciduous trees. Some of the trees are cultivated with an aim to enhance the industrial sectors. Teak, eucalyptus and sandalwood and so on are known to be perfect instances for the same. What makes the forest range so popular across the nation is due to the presence of Myristica Swamps. These freshwater species are rarely seen in India. The Himalayas are the other place where one could in large numbers. It is always seen that when there is a forest obviously a sanctuary or national park would be located associated with it. Shenduruny wildlife sanctuary is the mind-blowing wild home situated next to the Kulathupuzha forest range. Over there we are able to enchant the beauty of the unseen and endangered species of wild animals and birds. In fact, our camera was filled with amusing images of flora and fauna and also we did not forget to click our group photographs with the surreal nature as the backdrop. The forest also shelters some rare and precious medicinal plants belonging to various species in a small area and named it as Sanjeevani.

After exploring the incredible beauty of the emerald surroundings we moved to Kulathupuzha dairy farm. As mentioned earlier, Kulathupuzha shelters one of the largest dairy farms in the state. The farm was constructed as part of the Indo-Swiss project and over there the employees use modern equipment for the functioning of the dairy farm. We concluded the Kulathupuzha exploration by visiting the Sastha temple. The temple experiences a large number of devotees during Vishnu Mahotsavam in the months of April and May. Followed to it we visited the Jatayu rock and enjoyed the panoramic beauty of the lush green environment. After enjoying the resplendent beauty of Kollam we packed our bags and returned to our hometown.

Kannur- One of my Favorite Place in my Life

The scintillating beauty of Cannanore could not be described in mere words. Wait a moment does anybody understood the place Cannanore. If not I will let you know more about it. The resplendent beauty of the mind-blowing Cannanore took me to ancient days of Kerala. Cannanore is another name or old name of Kannur, the northern district of Kerala. Kannur is the only place where one could find the ancient and unfortunately rare art forms. From school days I am fond of art. There was not a single event in the arts festival that I haven’t participated. Twice I have won the over championship trophy. Along with art, I love animals and also love to explore the richly populated forests areas. My craze towards trees and animals is perfectly reflected in my home. Every nook and corner of my residential is occupied with wide varieties of plants and trees. Also, I like to pamper domestic animals mainly dogs and cats. Maybe all these features propelled me to visit the alluring district. I was quite sure that my parents won’t send me alone to Kerala to enjoy the magnificent beauty of the astounding place. Hence I surfed on the internet the different ways to enchant the beguiling charm. Finally, I got the result; the most efficient way to arrive in Kerala is by availing of the tour packages. At first, I thought of purchasing the group packages so that I could accompany my friends. But I changed my decision and selected family packages so that I could make my parents happy and proud of me. It is being only a year I have joined the company, I was not that financially stable. Hence I surfed for the cheapest tour packages that inculcate all the mind-blowing destinations of northern Kerala especially Kannur.

Our maiden journey to Kannur or Cannanore

Even though the Malayalam language is familiar to us but Kerala is known to be an unexplored destination for us. From the above sentence don’t think that we are not Malayalee. We are basically Malayalee, due to job opportunities and for a better lifestyle, our ancestors migrated to Madras, now formally known as Chennai. Since then we really became foreigners. Once in 3 or 4 years, we used to visit the ‘god’s own country’. That’s all! Through our neighbors we heard many unknown features of Kannur since then it became my lifetime dream to enchant its splendid beauty. To make our journey more economic we purchased the tour packages at cheap prices from Geogeo Holidays

Traverse to wild home – Aranmual wildlife sanctuary

Kerala holiday packages

As mentioned earlier my affection towards wild animals propelled the tour guide to change the itinerary. The smallest wild home yet encompassed with unseen wonders of nature, Aranmula wildlife sanctuary sprawled in an area of 50 sq.kms will definitely captivate your minds. The moment I grabbed the entry pass I took out my camera as well as binoculars and started to lure the magnificent beauty of each and every fauna and flora. Some the species especially rare ones say barking deer, sloth, sambhar and so on whereas staring at me when I clicked the photos without asking their permission. The wild elephants that were commuting to the Cheenkannipuzha River to quench thirst looked at me with an angry face. The moment the elephants left the place we again continued with our exploration. While enjoying the beauty of the unseen dense forest suddenly we heard some sound. At first, we startled how could sound from loudspeaker could be heard in the forest. Our tour guide then told that it is an awareness programme conducted by the authorities for the natives as well as the visitors to share the importance of conserving nature and its resources. By the time my dad shared my interest in planting to our tour guide. He later discussed with the speaker and provided an opportunity for me to share my experience and hobby with the public.

My first ever trekking that to Katti Betta

Not only the scenic place of Aranmula wildlife sanctuary attracts hundreds of travel enthusiast but also the tallest peak called Katti Betta positioned in the midst of the forest will surely lure your minds. Katti Betta is one of the captivating factors that turn the tourist destination into a fabulous tourist destination. When ascending to the summit we are able to witness the unseen astounding beauty of nature. Over there we captured the amusing images of birds flying high in the sky in a particular fashion. Along with common birds like crows, pigeons and sparrows the region shelters many rare and endangered species of migratory birds. My camera was filled with beautifying images of birds and their various styles.

Monsoon was the perfect time to visit

The right time to visit the sanctuary is followed to the monsoon season and our tour guide really appreciated our decision. He also told us that if we had visited the wild home during monsoon season, the venomous reptiles would have attacked us. Scorching summer days are another option to explore beauty.

After enchanting the marvellous beauty of the scintillating wild home we moved to one the temple (I exactly do not remember the name) to watch the live performances of the ancient art form called Theyyam, still practised in various parts of Kannur. Theyyam lasted for a few hours. Even though we did not completely understand the song, we really enjoyed each and every segment of it. An epic story from the holy book of Hindu is linked with the art form. According to the locals, the main performers get some messages about the specific people while practising Theyyam. After spending one more day over there we returned back to our hometown.
