Kerala - An Enchanting Journey

Beaches, backwaters, wildlife, waterfalls, world class health and Ayurveda resorts, tea gardens and spice plantations, ancient rituals and colorful festivals – Kerala has been blessed with it all. Welcome To Kerala! Fringed by rolling hills on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west, lies this amazingly beautiful state in Southern India called Kerala - the land of green magic, a narrow, fertile strip on the South-West coast of India, sandwiched between the Lakshadweep Sea and the Western Ghats mountains.
