I’m well aware that monsoons are technically not accurate to travel and that too in August Month where the whole country is receiving massive rainfall, but since it’s also the world’s peak travel season, things book up fast. This means it’s never too early to start thinking about August.
Also, it’s important to note that some regions receive more rain than others during the monsoon. Out of India’s major cities, Mumbai receives the most rain, followed by Kolkata. But eventually, Kerela becomes the most beautiful place to travel in mid monsoon season.
Colorful Kerala, the land of the coconut palm is an enchanting kaleidoscope of deep-rooted cultures, traditions, and delightful sensations. This narrow strip of land at the southwestern tip of Inda is about 560 kms. long and just 120kms. at its widest. It is an exotic blend of nature’s very best cool, mist-shrouded highlands, fertile plains, dense tropical forests, palm-fringed sandy beaches, and a complex maze of backwaters. The state is flanked by the high ranges of the Western Ghats on the cast and the Arabian Sea on the west. Thus, the beaches and backwaters, wildlife sanctuaries, and hill stations are all located nearby, providing a unique experience to the travelers visiting this land of great beauty.
Kerela also unfolds a vibrant cultural canvas unseen anywhere else in the world. Its rich cultural heritage is very well exhibited in its frenzied tempo of snake boat races, classical dignity of Kathakali, lyrical beauty of Mohiniyattam, the satirical wit of Ottan Thullal, martial skills of Kalaripayattu, and the exquisite workmanship of Kerala handicrafts.
The antiquity of the State can be traced as early as 5000 to 3000 BC. People have been sailing to Kerala in search of spices, sandalwood, and ivory for at least 2000 years. Its coasts were known to the Phoenicians, Romans, and later to the Arabs and Chinese, long before Vasco da Gama came to India. Christianity and Islam were introduced to Kerala much before the rest of India.
Kerala, “God’s own country” is also an epitome of secularism and a masterpiece of unity in diversity. The entire landscape is dotted with temples, churches, mosques, and synagogues. This land of valuable cash crops also has the distinction of having the highest literacy, life expectancy, and lowest infant mortality among the Indian States.
Today, Kerala has emerged as a major tourist destination and is ranked among the ten paradises of the world by the “National Geographic Traveller”.
