A Romantic Escape to the Misty Hills of Kerala

honeymoon-packages-munnarMarriage is not just a word in the dictionary for a girl but a word with a whole lot of emotions and dreams attached to it. It was on the 20th of August that this word brought in a meaning in my life as I was happily married to Ashik. We were settled in Bangalore one of the busiest business city, mostly known as the city of dreams. Even after marriage, we had no much time for each other as we were totally busy with our work and tight schedules; we never got enough time to understand each other. After a week of our marriage, Ashik planned a surprise honeymoon trip to the misty hills of Kerala. Our honeymoon trip was organized and managed by Gogeo Holidays as we opted for one of their best and most attractive Kerala tour packages from Bangalore. According to the plan, we were to spend our honeymoon days in Munnar which was one of the very famous tourist destinations with hill stations covered in mist. The only reason to choose Kerala to be our honeymoon destination is due to the climate and natural beauty of the place which a city like Bangalore lacks. A rapidly developing city like Bangalore lacks nature as the place is mostly filled with buildings and flats which make the city look more congested and stressful. People in the town are driven into never ending work which makes them look more like systematized machines than humans. Even after having a number of tourist destinations in Bangalore we choose to enjoy our honeymoon in Kerala so as to escape from the loud busy city life of the place.

Couple-portraitsWe started our trip on the 20th of August at 8.00 am to the land known as ‘gods own country to enjoy the days in the misty hills of Munnar via flight.  We reached the Bangalore airport by 6.00 am and were welcomed by the tour operators. After a 3 hour flight, we reached the Kochi international airport by 9.00 am. As soon as we reached the Kochi airport we were welcomed by the trip organizers and were led to the cab. We decided to have our lunch on our way to Munnar. After riding for an hour we finally got to a restaurant to have our lunch. It was after reaching the restaurant that we realized that we were really hungry, the smell of Masala and flavors of the food were more tempting for us.  As soon as we got the menu we ordered for the very famous chicken Biriyani, which was one of my favorite dishes in Kerala. The smell of the Masala and flavors in the food with the delicious taste of gravy of the chicken and the rice with the salad would make your mouth water. After having the lunch along with some juice and dessert we decided to move on with the trip. Due to our very busy schedules in back in Bangalore, we never had enough time to eat, even if we eat. We never had enough time or piece of mind where we could enjoy and explore the taste of the food we eat. It was in this restaurant in Kerala we actually explored the taste and flavours of the land to the fullest. We reached Munnar by 11.45 am after a ride of 2 hrs. As soon as we reached the town we were helped to check in to the best budget hotel in Munnar where we could enjoy the stay. After freshening up we decided to start the tour of the place.

Mattupetty-Dam-near-MunnarAs per the plan, our first destination of the day was Mattupetti Dam, which is a well-known reservoir which is located almost 13 km away from the Munnar town. We reached the place after a drive of about 30 to 45 min by 12.45 pm. the main attraction of the place is the natural surroundings of the concrete dam which is well built between the hill ranges of the Western Ghats. And it is used mainly for water storage for hydroelectric projects. The place is a very prominent destination in almost all Kerala holiday packages for family where they could enjoy the trip in the lap of nature and enjoy the sight of the dam which is surrounded by the misty hills and the Western Ghats. A family trip to the dam could also be made educational as the dam is mainly used to store water for the hydroelectric project.  Another attraction of the place is the fact that a number of elephants visit the area to have water from the dam. After enjoying the sight of the place, we decided to explore the Mattupetti Dairy Farm which is located at a distance of 30 min from the dam. We reached our 2nd destination, the Mattupetti Dairy Farm by 2.00pm. The farm is one of the well-known destinations in the place which is a well-known Indo-Swiss Farm. The main attraction of the farm is its existence for being a highly specialized dairy farm which is named and listed under the Indo-Swiss Livestock Project. Another importance of the farm is that the place reared a number of high-quality cattle and new varieties of cattle are developed. after enjoying the beauty of the place and spending some romantic time with each other we decided to move on to our next destination of the day, Top Station.

 

 

Kerala Tourism Packages.jpgLocated about 40 km from the Munnar town the place is one of the best sightseeing destinations were the trekking facilities are provided for the travelers.  We reached the top station after a travel of about 1 hr by 4.00 pm. the misty cloud of the place was something that attracts a number of tourists from around the world. After enjoying a small trekking from the base we reached the top station to take in the panoramic view of the Western Ghats and the valley of Theni which is breathe taking. The place got the name from having the top most located railway station at the Kundala Valley Railway. After enjoying the beautiful sight of the city and spending some quality time with each other we decided to get back to our restaurant as the watch already showed the time to be 6.00 pm. lost in the nature we didn’t realize the running time. Back in Bangalore we never have enjoyed the peace and freshness we felt in the land of mist hills, Kerala. This beauty of the state with misty hills, rivers, and fresh air and nature makes the land entirely different from busy cities filled with buildings and factories. Kerala is one of the best destinations where one could enjoy the nature and relax in the lap of nature forgetting every tension and stress of the daily busy city life. From the top station, we headed back to our hotel by 6.30 pm. after a drive for about 1.30 hrs we reached back to our hotel by 8.00 pm. by the time we entered our room we were exhausted and tired. After being in the room for a while we decide to refresh and head to the dining to have the dinner. After having the delicious dinner we headed back to the room, after spending some quality time with each other we decided to sleep as we had a flight to catch the next day.

munnar-honeymoon-packageWe woke up the next day by 9 am and after refreshing and having the breakfast we checked out of the hotel by 10.30 the stay in Munnar was one of the best I could remember and cherish for a life time. Newly wedded couples like us could easily avail a Romantic Munnar honeymoon packages where they could enjoy the climate and the mist which sets up a perfect romantic ambience. The natural elements of the Western Ghats with the beauty of nature would make your honeymoon the most memorable and special. After checking out of the hotel we were taken back to the Kochi international airport. A travel of about 3 hrs, we reached the airport by 2.00pm. After boarding the flight back to Bangalore we reached our place by 5.00 pm. the days we enjoyed back in Kerala were the best in our lives. The ambience of the place gave us enough time to know more about each other and understand each other well. After reaching back home we were engaged and busy in our works, but after the trip, our relation took a beautiful turn where we decided to enjoy our life together by understanding and cherishing each other’s dream. The newly wedded couples could make each day of their honeymoon count by exploring the hill station in Kerala the land called ‘Gods Own Country’.

Kerala, the minuscule state in the Southern tip of Indian continent, has been capturing the attention of travelers from all over the world for many years. There are many simple yet alluring facts of Kerala that make everyone fall in love with it, in the first glance itself. The local culture is such one fact.

What we now describe as the culture and traditions of Kerala is actually a confluence of the amalgamation of different kinds of influences that this land has faced with. According to the archeological and historical evidence, the first and earliest inhabitants of Kerala were the Dravidians. And you can still see the influences of this Dravidian culture in different aspects of Kerala it’s day to day life.

The land of counts

As the name Kerala literally indicates, this state is indeed the land of coconuts- the tree of life. Many cultural habits of this state have been revolved around the cultivation of this crop. The tender coconut water is Kerala’s own soft drink that is now loved by many. And if the soft flesh is mixed with the water, it makes up for a wonderful snack.  The matured coconut is grated as used as an ingredient for almost every dish that Kerala own. And the coconut oil made from the dry county is also using to cook almost every dish. The toddy, which is got from the coconut tree is Kerala’s own unique alcoholic drink which is made from the sap of the flower before it blooms.

Not only the land is full of coconut fringed landscapes everywhere, this tree also has made a great impact on the lifestyle of many people here.  Toddy tapping is the source of income of many people here, and you can find Toddy shops in many parts of Kerala.  The course that is made from the coconut husk forms the basis of the coir industry here. The choir is also used in many interesting ways. The fiber of the coir is used to make mats, rugs, baskets, and many other fascinating handicrafts. Many tourists buy these as typical Kerala souvenirs. So do not forget to visit the major coir hub- Alleppey in Kerala with your cheap Kerala family tour packages at low price, during your trip to Kerala. The list is not needed here. The outer shell of the coconut is also used to make different handicraft products and attractive traditional pots and ornaments.  The coconut leaves are used for the purpose of thatching the traditional houses and the dried ones make up a form of fuel. So as you can see, the coconut indeed is the tree of life in Kerala and makes up a big part of the culture in here.

And these form an important part of the culture of this land. Elephants are considered to be a symbol of royalty and prestige for the Keralites, and also a big source of good fortune.  In all the major temple festivals in Kerala, the idols are carried out by only by an elephant, who are considered as the Lord Ganesha himself.  One of the popular such tuskers- Guruvayur kesavan who used to carry the deity of Lord Krishna in the temple of Guruvayur has a statue erected in that area, These tusker heroes are more like legends who are kept in the memory of people even after their death.

Being the lifelines and the resourceful waterways of Kerala…!

“I am the life saver, ‘Water’. I am abundant in Kerala, the God’s Own Country!

periyar tourism

But people tend to misuse and pollute me even though they are very literate and learnt people. Littering and literacy have no connection I have to presume!” – If Water ever got a chance to speak up in Kerala, this would be the reaction! Kerala is rich in water sources and marine resources. It is one of the main lifelines of the state and even for Ultimate Kerala Tour packages. For ages, water used to be the major travel route to travel through the length and breadth of Kerala. That was the time roads were not yet developed here. With the infrastructural development and technological advancements, Kerala has almost stopped utilizing its waterways for trade and transportation. But tourism has made use of many of these waterways that amuse the travellers from water-scarce locations like Chennai who come on Kerala tour packages. During the summer season, the state is flocked by tourists from all over India for family holidays. Though Kerala is a tropical state and you cannot expect anything other than a hot and humid climate here, these tourists find solace in the beaches and backwaters here during summer. It is a great way to beat the heat is what the frequent tourists exclaim! Of course, during the summer season, the hill stations of Kerala are crowded with local and outstation tourists. Those from Chennai and the neighbouring cities even come on weekend Munnar tour packages to beat the heat in summer. All said and done, water still remains the major source of life and livelihood for the people in Kerala. If only we are able to use it wisely, we will have this source sustained over generations to come.

A tour of Kerala’s serene and beautiful beaches in summer

muzhappilangad-drive-in-
Kerala’s long coastal line has gifted the state a long stretch of beautiful yet unique beaches along the shores of the Arabian Sea. These beaches are a rich source of marine species which we use for our daily food as well as export to other countries across the world. These beaches are a rich source of the economy by way of tourism too. Our tourism development authority has realized the worth of the beaches in the state that keep the industry shining even during the leanest time and has introduced beach tourism development programs that help improve the beaches here. Refreshment stalls and restrooms are installed and tourism information centre and security guards appointed in the main beaches in the state which attract maximum tourists. These changes have made a huge difference to the less popular beaches which are now being frequented by tourists on their Optimum tour packages in Kerala.

family vacation in Kerala

Some of the interesting and amusing beaches in Kerala are the Kovalam Hawa Beach, Trivandrum Sankhumugham Beach, Varkkala Papanasam Beach, Allepey Beach, Marari Beach, Vizhinjam Beach, Bekkal Beach, Kappad Beach, Beypore Beach, Chavakkad Beach, Azhikode Beach, Cherai Beach, Fort Kochi beach, Kappil Beach, Meenkunnu Beach, Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach, Nattika Beach, Neendakara beach, Poovar Beach, Thaikkadappuram beach etc. Some of these are very popular destinations in popular tour packages for Kerala. While some of these beaches like Kovalam and Cherai are popular for their sunset views, some others like Marai and Bekkal have a beautiful landscape nearby. Some other beaches here have unusual peculiarities like the Papanasam beach in Varkkala which has some hot springs of water coming out of the cliffs nearby the beach. The Muzhappilangad beach is the only drive-in beach in Kerala. While the Mid to South Kerala beaches are very popular among travellers on Kerala tourism packages, the beaches in the Malabar region are not so popular. As a matter of fact, the beaches in Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasargode are extremely beautiful, much more than their Southern counterparts and some even have rare specialities. In fact, the list of good beaches in Kerala is boundless as there’s a long stretch of around 700 kilometres to cover.

Sailing through the lakes and backwaters of Kerala

trip to kerala
You won’t believe when I say some tourists visit Kerala every year from far-fetched places just to enjoy a few days of houseboat cruise in Kerala. They find these backwaters soothing and exciting at the same time, keeping their minds far from the tensions of their jobs. No wonder the houseboat cruises are so much in demand among the honeymoon couples on invigorating tour packages in Kerala. With the increasing demand for better waterways for tourism, the state government has plans to revive some of the ancient waterways which were discontinued due to human intervention. The first step has already been taken in Chendamangalam where the Muziris heritage tours are being conducted now along with houseboat cruise. Though the waterways here were never too wide, they were used earlier for transporting goods and rice from Allepey. With some renovation, these water channels are open now to take the tourists on a heritage tour across Chendamangalam, North Paravoor and the nearby islands where some beautiful resorts are functioning. This will gain popularity slowly within a couple of tourist seasons. The more popular waterways are in Kochi, Kollam, Kannur, Poovar, Kumarakom and Allepey. While Kannur is the only Northern district on this list, the southern counterparts are very popular destinations for honeymoon packages in Kerala.

Cruising through the Venice of the East

kerala tour packages
Allepey has always been a traveller’s delight from the earlier days itself. Much before tourism was considered a way of life for the locals, people used to visit the resorts of Allepey and enjoy a ride on the majestic houseboats. In those times, the houseboats had very little facilities onboard. With an increasing demand, the locals recognized the opportunities they offered and revamped their traditional houseboats to accommodate the tourists with modern facilities like air conditioners and televisions. This has boosted the already increasing demand for houseboat cruise among the Indian and foreign tourists. Many tourists are now planning their Allepey or Kumarakom houseboat cruise along with their Excellent Munnar tour packages. What makes Allepey more desirable is that the smaller water channels are still in use for travel, trade and transportation of goods by the locals. So you can also enjoy a ride on a smaller boat or even a traditional snake-boat through these channels to get a closer look at everyday life of the blessed people here. Water will remain a way of their life as long as they live in such beautiful and blessed locales. Another speciality of the houseboat cruise is that you can either go for a 2 to 3-hour day cruise or opt for an overnight stay in the houseboats to enjoy the true essence of Kerala.

alappey tourist packages

As much as the honeymoon couples enjoy the houseboat cruises in Allepey, a family can also equally enjoy Exciting tour packages in Kerala  waterways. You can enjoy the lavish spread of traditional Kerala lunch and seafood served onboard during your cruise. You can also enjoy a live performance of Kathakali or Mohiniyattom along with the green pastures of Kerala. In fact, many organizations are arranging their team meetings and family get-togethers to make sure they are not disturbed by any external elements during their time together. That is another reason why houseboat cruises are desirable for private tour packages for a family in Kerala so that they can spend some quality time together far away from the pollution and commotion of the city. The paddy fields, coconut groves and villages on both sides of the backwaters and lakes offer a soothing experience to the tourists.

The gorgeous waterfalls that have made their Hollywood entry

athirapally-waterfalls tourism
Yes, one of the stunning waterfalls in Kerala which is a popular part of honeymoon and Kerala tour packages for family in reasonable prices has already made its appearance in an Oscar-winning Hollywood movie. I am talking about the Athirappilly waterfalls which appeared in the celebrated movie Life of Pi. This place is so gorgeous that many Bollywood movies and song are shot here exclusively for the natural surroundings it offers. Along the forests and mountains of Kerala, there are many unexploited and unadulterated waterfalls that attract many locals during the summer holidays. You can also visit some of the three-stepped to seven-stepped waterfalls in Kerala that are completely natural to cool your body and mind. Some of these are used to generate electricity in the Hydro-Electric projects. That is another way Mother Nature has blessed the small state with water.

“Water sustains us before we are born,
Water sustains us during our lives,
For those who believe strongly in the rituals,
Water sustains their souls even after they die!”

On-Board the Fascinating Houseboats of Kerala!

ekthra-kerala-backwater-Kerala’s houseboat rides are really fascinating. This is something you can experience only in Kerala. The Kerala houseboats are somewhat similar to the Shikara houseboats in Kashmir we have seen in old Hindi movies. Marvelous Kerala Tour packages these days invariably offer a day tour or overnight stay in a houseboat in Kumarakom or Allepey. It is the most enchanting part of Kerala tour. Kerala houseboats are usually the 100 plus years old Kettuvalloms made of jack wood. The main specialties of these houseboats are that no nail or metal is used for making the boat. It is made of coir and wood only. The joints are held together or tied with coir and hence the name KettuVallom. Kettu means to tie and Vallom means a boat. In the olden days, these Kettuvalloms were used to transport tonnes of rice and other crops from Kuttanad to Kochi. It used to take days to reach and hence a small kitchen was available inside the boat and also some shelter where the workers could take rest till it reached the destination. When the roads were developed, the waterways were forgotten and these Kettuvalloms were slowly revamped to accommodate the tourists who seemed very amused at these traditional boats. We had booked our special houseboat Kerala tour packages from Chennai this time to savoir the scenic backwaters and villages of Kerala. It was a family tour and we had booked a 4 bedroom houseboat for 2 nights. Our cousins joined who were booked for Munnar tour packages from Kolkata also joined us after they finished their tour of Munnar.

Reaching Kochi and Heading to the houseboat

As we reached Kochi by our flight we met a few honeymoon couples who were on Munnar Tour packages from Bangalore. Their flight came via Chennai and incidentally we had booked that flight to Kochi. They both were IT couples and worked together for the same company till recently. Since their company did not allow both husband and wife working in the same company one of them changed their job and joined a company whose office was nearby the old company. This made their lives easier. They told us that another couple was joining them on Munnar tour packages from Hyderabad. They had booked 3 cottages next to each other so that all can get back together and enjoy their honeymoons too. I realized that Fabulous Kerala Honeymoon Tour Packages were still a rage among honeymoon couples as it was 10 years back. We landed in Kochi International Airport and our tour manager had arranged a vehicle to drop us in our Kochi hotel where we would stay that night and then move to Allepey by houseboat the next day morning. We reached our hotel by 6.30 and the view of the sunset from our hotel in Marine Drive was amazing. We were mesmerized by the backwaters colored orange by the setting sun. After sunset, Kochi got a bit busier I guess. There was an exhibition going on in the nearby ground and there was a huge crowd there. Since that evening we were free, we decided to check out that exhibition and it turned out to be just another place with many stalls with the regular exhibition stuff. So we walked around and moved on to stroll through the Marine Drive walkway. The cool breeze was very refreshing though it was smelly at some places!

Next day morning the golden sun rays woke us up. It was magical to see the golden sun rays falling on the tranquil backwaters of Kochi. We got ready fast and had our breakfast which was Puttu and Kadala, Kerala’s special delicacy. It was quite filling too. We soon set sail on our houseboat through the backwaters to Allepey. We realized that tour packages for Kerala cannot be complete without this journey. We were reminded of our Glorious Kerala tour packages from Chennai which we took 10 years back. Kochi was not like this back then, but still it was the busiest city in Kerala back then also. The morning sun was quite hot and thankfully we had booked a fully air conditioned houseboat which kept us cool. As I mentioned earlier, tour packages in Kerala ought to include a compulsory houseboat ride as nothing can be said or compared to the sights you get to see in the waterways. On both sides we could see small houses where women were washing clothes, cleaning vessels or chatting with neighbors. I bet nowhere in cities you will be able to see such a sight nowadays. People are too glued to TV or smartphones now to bother about the neighbors.

Reaching Allepey

We had our lunch in the houseboat itself. It was a lavish Kerala lunch spread on a plantain leaf. We all were foodies and enjoyed every bit of what was served. The highlight of the lunch was the dessert which was called ‘Palada Prathaman’. It was essentially a milk based ghee but we had never tasted anything as heavenly before. That we thought was a highlight of our Kerala tour. We reached Allepey in an hour and were delighted to get down and touch the land. It was green all around and we strolled through a resort which had beautiful landscapes and a small pond with some gold fishes. We were to stay in that resort for the night according to the itinerary of our Grand Kerala Tour Packages for Family As Allepey was popular for seafood, we decided to try some snacks made of fish along with our tea. The fish fingers and Karimeen fry tasted exotic. We moved on to the beach before sunset so that we could savour the beautiful sunset from Allepey beach. Our dinner was again extremely tasty with seafood and other non-vegetarian delicacies all made in typical Kerala style. So now we realised one more fact that tour package Kerala includes getting to eat a lot of exotic seafood and non-vegetarian delicacies also. The next 2 days went onboard the houseboat peacefully. Since it was a long time since the entire family had got together, we enjoyed every bit of being together on our holiday in Kerala. The tranquil waters left us a calm and beautiful backdrop where we could sing and dance and enjoy ourselves without thinking of the world around us which we had left far behind.

Two days later our tour packages from Chennai got over and we had to return to our daily city routine after the beautiful Kerala holiday tour. This tour confirmed that Kerala tourism packages are the best ways to unwind your mind and get refreshed. You will forget all about the city rush and hectic work schedule and horrific targets when you are in the houseboat in the middle of the beautiful backwaters, enjoying hot fried fish freshly caught from the backwaters.
