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.

Kerala and Karnataka

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.
