Great Holidays in Kerala from the local Experts
Journeys of Mind, Body & Spirit in Kerala
Kerala is India's tropical playground. Although the smallest of India's states it is like an Indian curry filled with all sorts of delicious flavours and experiences. There is a little Goa, a little Tamil Nadu, a little Karnataka; Kerala is both modern and ancient. Home to some of India's most famous and venerable temples, it is also the foundation of India's long christian tradition including six churches that were founded by the apostle St Thomas. Journey inland and you encounter the tranquil rice paddies and inland waterways of the backwaters with their snail like Kettuvalloms that once carried rice to the coast and then around the world. Beyond, the land rises high into the Ghat Mountains and a mist-bedewed landscape of coffee, tea, spices filled with perfumes, tropical jungle wildflowers and, if you are truly blessed, tigers.

Read the Guide
If Kerala is all new to you.. why not start with a browse of the guide which tells a lot about many different facets of Kerala; when to visit, what to expect and how to prepare. Our guide contains multitudes on many things that don't interest about but us. We are collectors - one minute its a complete list Hindu temples, then it Vastu Shastra - eccentric. You can follow the lives, loves and arguments in our secret rural village or just trace your way around the state.
For guests seeking ayurveda treatment in Kerala, we have a large guide on ayurveda and relationships with both Ayurveda Centres and Doctors. Most treatment courses last14 to 28 days. Anything less than that is fun but generally ineffective. Fun to try but not efficacious. If you have a specific purpose for ayurveda, then we recommend you fill in the detailed ayurveda form and we can proceed from there.
