southindOnce, there was but a trickle of tourism coming to India, and the first arrivals came to Kerala. Over the years the flow grew to a stream, then a river.

People hear about verdant hills, flowers and bamboo forest and come looking for beauty and a slower pace of life. Nearly all, however, miss the rural hinterlands, hidden in the valleys and foothills of the province’s mountains.

This fifteen day excursion brings together the unknown with the famous – showing you the best of Kerala’s backwaters, its ancient but bustling cities and giving you a rare glimpse beyond what is available to the more touristic traveller. If it is this glimpse that enchants you most, consider the two week itinerary.
