Kerala India Travel Itinerary

This page gives information on India Travel Itineraries. Currently I have managed to write about my favourite place in India - Kerala. I havae been there thrice and wish to travel there again.

In my opinion, everyone should travel to India once in their lifetime.

It’s an open air school. It brings out all emotions in you – anger with beaurocracy, peace in an ashram, compassion of people, joy, sorrow.

Watching smiling young faces even though living in poverty can be very uplifting; at the same time the reality can be very depressing. Generally speaking, I think south India is a better place to visit if you are visiting India for the first time. In my experience, people get friendlier as you go south, there is a rich heritage still preserved in the south.

I have found Delhi to be a very harsh place to visit – unfriendly taxi drivers, urbanisation, busy life.

As you go south to Chennai, Kerala, Mysore (Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Kerala) things are a bit calmer. Kerala is a very good place to visit in the south. I have visited Kerala thrice and here is what I think is good to visit in Kerala:

Day1, day 2 – Cochin – There are plenty of things to do here – Chinese fishing nets, old churches, old settlements and the wonderful food.

Day 3 – Alleppy – Take a backwaters ride in a traditional boat, eat on banana leaf along the way. Don’t forget to visit the ‘Coffee House’ to taste some wonderful Dosas (pancakes) and fresh Coffee.

Day 4 – Periyar – A wildlife sanctuary. You can see elephants and other animals during the visit.

Day 5, 6 – I stayed at a place near Periyar (Thekkady) called Vandanmedu (Carmelia haven). Here are the distances to this place:

Munnar

80 kms

Kattappana

10 kms

Kumarkoam

160 kms

Kottayam

140 kms

Thekkady

25 kms

It’s a beautiful resort in the tea estates. There are plenty of spice trees to see. The rooms are very different as well – there are tree houses, huts and rooms in the tea estate. It was quite an experience to live there. Here is the link:

Day 7,8 – Munnar – Munnar is about 80 kms from Thekkaddy. You can take a taxi to go there from Thekkady. Munnar has some beautiful scenery – acres and acres of tea estates on rolling hills. There is a lake where you can go on a peaceful pedal boat ride.

Its an amazingly peaceful place to relax.

Other place I like in India is Goa. I’ll write information on more places soon.
