Our guide to India

Kerala and Karnataka

Kerala is epitomised by its wonderfully slow pace of life. It’s a hugely diverse region, offering a great deal without the long drives that often typify exploring northern India. A cruise through the backwaters past idyllic traditional villages is always a real highlight.

It’s also worth visiting the bustling city of Cochin, the hub of the spice trade, and filled with echoes of its Dutch, Portuguese and British colonial influences. A drive into the hills will take you to the dramatic scenery of Munnar and the wildlife at Thekkady; and the food is another highlight of Kerala - its traditional fish curries are a real delight. Karnataka is Kerala’s little visited cousin - where temples, nature reserves and peace and quiet are the order of the day.
