Tour Highlights:

  • Discover the Old Fort Area in Cochin and its heritage and Chinese Fishing Nets.
  • The Art of growing and making the perfect cuppa in Munnar.
  • The art of growing spice and rubber plantations of Kannam Estate.
  • A chic retreat on the Backwaters, a wonderful fusion of classic Kerala and contemporary details
  • Relaxation at Marari with strolls on the beach and be tempted to try an ayurvedic massage.

This itinerary is a slightly different take on a classic itinerary.  We cover the better known destinations of Cochin, Munnar, Backwaters and end on the beach, but we use  fun, chic hotels which have a contemporary take on  the classic Kerala experience.  Instead of  visiting   Periyar we take you to the more remote Kannam Estate where you can explore the spice plantations by cycle, by walking  or spend a day with an elephant, bathing her and feeding her  and accompanying her on her daily rounds.
