Journey Overview
Located on the tropical Malabar Coast of southwestern India, Kerala has been named as one of the ten paradises of the world by National Geographic Traveler. Peace and serenity await you.
Bustling commercial port city with a trading history that dates back to at least 600 years. Called as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, the city is the financial, commercial and industrial capital of Kerala.

The Influences of Arabs, Dutch, Phoenicians, Portuguese, Chinese and British, are felt.
From houseboat stays in to lazing around on pristine beaches, the range of memorable experiences you can have in the coastal town of Alappuzha is almost overwhelming for first-time visitors.

Surrounded by dense greenery including countless coconut trees that lean over the waters, these backwaters are navigated by all sorts of traditional boats, most famously by the Kerala River boats.
Experience the sight of majestic elephants, spice plantations, and beautiful hills. The Periyar forest is a National treasure, containing the most vivid range of flora and fauna on the planet, including migratory species spotted in these lands.
Popular hill-station of Kerala perched at an altitude of 1600 m in the Western Ghats, known as the Kashmir of South India. Situated on the banks of three rivers Madupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru, Munnar is also blessed with natural bird sanctuaries and the tea plantations.
Mumbai (also known as Bombay) is the most populous place in India, and one of the largest, most vibrant cities in the world. Experience a dynamic, modern city with cosmopolitan lifestyle, a home to breathtaking historical landmarks, famous places, rich culture, and much more.
