Best Things To Do in Kerala

Kerala, which is a state in South India, is one of the most beautiful places in the country. It is a diverse state, sandwiched between the Lakshadweep sea, which covers its entire coastline on one side which has some great beaches, and the rough terrains of the Western Ghats on the other. Kerala, being a tropical region, is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, which is why it has many wildlife sanctuaries in the entire state for the protection of these plants and animals. Tours and safaris in these sanctuaries, along with camping is one of the best things to do in Kerala.

Kerala has a humid tropical climate throughout the year. It experiences heavy rainfall courtesy of the extended monsoon season. Kerala Backwaters are a set of manmade and natural lagoons that cover almost the entire state. An interconnected network of canals, both natural and man-made, rivers and lakes form this unique system that is very crucial to the irrigation system of Kerala and serves as a source of cargo transport and tourism as well. Backwaters are a special feature unique to Kerala only in the entire country, often compared with the American Bayou.

Kerala is very easily accessible from all over the globe as it has three international airports - Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut. These three airports are among the top 15 busiest airports in the country and have flights from all over India and around the world. There are several major railway stations across the state for inter-state and intra-state train services. In case you were planning a road trip, several national highways pass through different major cities in Kerala.

Kerala is a colourful and vibrant place, filled with festivities and several major religious and non-religious events throughout the year, buzzing with activity. Participating in the Onam celebrations is one of the best things to do in Kerala.
