“Everything is different from what it is with us and excels both in size and beauty!” Marco Polo about Kerala
Recently whenever I open a travel magazine I see Kerala’s massive advertising campaign convincing that “It’s time for Kerala”. This governmental campaign aims to promote tourism in God’s own country and shows the unique beauty of this very special region of India. Well they’ve got a point there! Ad pictures are filled with blue sky, lush jungle, palms fringing the maze of canals, traditional houseboats and gentle faces of Kerala’s hosts. And you may think it’s their job to promote, those places always look stunning on pictures while the reality check proves opposite. Now this is not the case. This campaign actually shows one of the most amazing, pristine and worth-visiting place.
Kerala is a small Indian state on India’s South-West coast nestled between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea. Its uniqueness comes from the fact of being a continuous stream of forests, tea plantations and long stretches of beaches on the nearly 600km of coastline. It may be among the smaller states in the country, but what it lacks in area, nature and history has adequately compensated with stunning natural beauty and rich heritage. Coming across Kerala gets you to the lush forests, tea and spices plantations and hill stations around Munnar and Wayanad, to the sandy, palm fringed beaches of Malabar coast and of course to Alleppey the Venice of the East with Kerala’s Backwaters around. What is so special about them?
Here are some mind blowing facts about Kerala’s phenomenon- the BACKWATERS
