Kumarakom, Kerala

A stunning and untouched village on the serene backwaters of the Vembanad Lake, it is the ultimate place in God’s Own Country, Kerala.

Considered a top destination in the world to visit by National Geographic magazine, it is also known as ‘Paradise on Earth’ and its natural beauty is absolutely breathtaking. It is no wonder that many luxury resorts have emerged over the last decade attracting many tourists worldwide.

It’s abundance of nature means it is a haven for migratory birds; egrets, herons, teal, waterfowl, darters, cuckoo, wild duck, and Siberian storks to name but a few. It’s pristine backwaters is also home to many species of fish and the best way to see both these species is almost certainly on a houseboat.

In no uncertain terms, if you are looking for a blissful experience, one that allows you to relax and unwind, and at the same time rejuvenate and energise, Kumarkom is a must-visit.

Munnar, Kerala

One of the most sought after destinations in South India, Munnar is a lush hill station in the magnificent Western Ghats mountain range laced with intricately formed emerald-green tea plantations.

At an altitude 1600 metres high and often living above the clouds, you can certainly expect to do some extraordinary and new experiences that is not possible in almost any other part of the world. You will no doubt succumb to its peace and tranquility behind the backdrop of a thousand shades of green – though you will soon want to explore the surroundings yourself by trekking up the mountaintop to get the best viewpoint at the peak.

Don’t be surprised to collect a variety of spices along the way (ginger, cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and much more) and use freshly laid elephant tracks from the night before to find your path to the top!

You’ve heard it from us. Munnar is quite simply, astonishing.
