Land of Coconuts

The stunning Indian state of Kerala is a narrow strip of land that stretches between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghat mountains. Stretching for almost 600km (373 miles) Kerala boasts a picture-perfect coastline that is adorned by numerous stunning beaches. It is neighboured by the states of Karnataka in the northwest and Tamil Nadu in the southeast. Its capital, the coastal town of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), is at the very south of the state. Strongly influenced by the Raj, this city is an amazing place to explore.
Often likened to Goa, Kerala is characterised by its sun-drenched beaches. It has developed a reputation as one of the easiest places in India for foreign travellers to visit mainly due to its beautiful beaches, historic colonial towns, lush forests, tranquil hills and of course, because English is widely spoken.
As well as its undoubted natural beauty, Kerala also offers its visitors a heady mix of historic cities, ancient monuments, wildlife parks, vibrant communities and a wealth of history.
The state oozes a laid back charm which has ensured its popularity with backpackers but it is also attracting a new generation of package tourists. Its fine climate, gorgeous coastline and the sheer number and variety of inland tours and excursions make it a very attractive destination. 
Unlike other parts of India, Kerala doesn’t offer much in the way of monumental sights. Mind you, it more than makes up for this with its natural beauty. The countryside undulates westward from the mountains producing rich green valleys. Rivers flow towards the sea creating features like the Athirampally Falls. 
Kerala is a haven for tourists who want to relax, unwind and lose themselves in the stunning natural environment that surrounds themMore info
