The greenery on display satiates the soul while your eyes are treated to the sight of exotic birds and romantic sceneries and your private houseboat passes traditional fishing villages which offer a glimpse into South Indian culture. That’s just the beginning. Apart from lush tropical scenes at every step, Kerala is also home to wild elephants, ayurvedic massages, specialised skin treatments, luxurious havens, mesmerising tea plantations, a delicately spiced cuisine and a beautiful culture. It becomes hard to argue with the locals when they keep calling it ‘god’s own country’.
Travelling to Kerala during the monsoon offers great the best benefits from Ayurvedic treatments as the humidity open the pores.
