Land of miracles Kerala:- Kerala regarded as ‘God’s Own Country’ the place is truly divine and seems heaven of the south. Lush green hills, glittering beaches, neat roads and multitudes of temple flecked on the landscape comprise the state. It is seventh most visited state by tourist. As I am a keen traveler, visited parts of north spontaneously decide to visit the south and Kerala was my first destination of the south. On the very first day of my journey, I landed at the Cochin airport.
Land of miracles Cochin in Kerala
The city reflects eclecticism of Kerala. I wonder in the city and find a mixed air of Indian, Jewish and Portuguese culture. I visited the oldest church in India- St Francis Church. The winding streets, Portuguese houses add the charm to the city sight. The Old Portuguese Palace- Mattancherry palace, contains India’s most beautiful murals. The Fort Cochin is immense and wonderful I walked there for a while and enjoy the views from the fort. I spend the night in this city.
Next day I head for the Munnar – a hill station established by the British located on the Western Ghats (1,800 meters above sea level). The picturesque valley and small town have gentle hills of tea, coffee, and cardamom cultivation. the nearby lakes, reservoirs, forest and tea estates are fabulously arranged I wander here for hours and admire the beauty of nature. I spend two days here, the second day in Munnar I visited Christ church and spotted Rajmala hills. At MadupettyDam, I enjoyed a boat ride and horse riding. Everything was enthusiastic here. At evening, I had the fun of lip tickling food plated on the Banana Leaves. The tradition and culture of the city were astonishing.
After reaching Thekkady the first destination I chose to visit the first wildlife sanctuary of the state. During the boat ride on Lake Periyar, I spotted the number of animals and their natural habitat. The lush green tree and the clean and shooting environment filled me with peace and affection. I spotted Sambar, Wild Dogs, Monkeys, Deer and Wild Elephants.
While touring Kerala I arrive at Kumarakom, a small village that forms a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake in Kerala. The place is unbelievably beautiful, the mangrove and coconut groves flourished in the region. The glittering waterways and canals create an enchanting panorama. I spotted breathtaking views and an extreme network of waterways and enjoyed houseboat cruise at Vembanad lake. Next day I packed my belongings and head back to Cochin and bid a farewell to this eco-tourism heaven.
