Tropical and spiritual, Kerala and the south is notably different to the rest of the country.

With a history dating back over 3000 years, this slower paced region is rich in ancient relics and steeped in traditions.

Abound in cultural and natural beauty, the people and architecture will inspire and delight, whilst the pristine beaches, serene backwater lagoons and lush jungles will relax the mind body and spirit.

Renowned for its vast wildlife sanctuaries, the south is also a great place to go in search for India’s unique flora and fauna.
