Backwaters, beaches, dances, martial arts, spices and more…Kerala is where green rules and skies are blue. The state has fast emerged as one of the best destinations to visit in India. At a recent roadshow in Delhi by Kerala Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC), I realized why. Here are my reasons for putting Kerala on my wish list.
The Seaplane Project
It would be fun to experience travel in a seaplane, something I have not done. This will have service at three airports–Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut—connecting prime destinations such as Astamudi, Punnamada, Kumarakom, Bolgatty and Bekal.
This is all about the ancient Spice Route around the legendary port of Muziris in Central Kerala. Kerala’s initiative to revive and promote the two millennia-old spice route, that links the south western coast of India up to Europe. The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) is supporting the venture.
Hop on Hop off Boats
As part of its innovative water-based tourism facilities, the Kerala Tourism Infrastructure Ltd., under the state’s Department of Tourism, launched the Hop-on Hop-off boat service and Water Taxis, for the first time in India, in the backwaters of Kochi and in the Spice Route project of Muziris.
Kerala Natventure activities include Trekking, Camping, Rock Climbing, Jungle, Wildlife Safaris, Bird Watching, Cycling, Kayaking, Canoeing and Paragliding. The Great Backwaters campaign aims at unveiling the state’s majestic backwaters as a single unique destination.
