Honeymoon in Kerala - When you're in "God's own country", you breathe pure air, cruise through languid backwaters, tread cautiously into dense tropical forests and frolic on the golden beaches. Crisscrossed by forty four rivers, and never far from the sea, Kerala is just simply beautiful.
While Kerala's fabulous scenery lulls tourists into forced relaxation, its very dedicated ayurvedic health centres soothe and rejuvenate. On the other hand, the varied topography allows white water rafting, trekking, camping, mountain biking, paragliding, backwater cruises and jungle safaris.
Kerala's wealth of natural attractions includes Kumarakom, a little heaven with mangroves, coconut groves, lush paddy fields and waterways and canals. You can take a boat to Lake Vembanad and indulge in fishing, swimming and bird watching. The splendid palm lined beaches stretch from Kovalam to Chowara and Varkala and are dotted with heritage attractions and Ayurvedic resorts. Munnar at 1800 m is picture perfect, with unending stretches of rolling tea plantations and spice gardens promising solitude and tranquility. Munnar's lavishly endowed countryside offers great trekking opportunities. Thekkady's Periyar forest has a fascinating wild life sanctuary with excellent accommodation facilities.
Talking of accommodation, ever dreamt of living in a tree house? In Vythiri, Wayanad district, you can, and at 80-odd ft above the ground, are assured of being surrounded by endless acres of lush green tropical forests.
You can't leave Kerala without a cruise down the backwaters between Kollan and Kochi - take a long boat through the 75 km maze of waterways, lakes, canals and rivers. Or, if you wish to be a part of the surroundings, spend a few days on the eco-friendly and biodegradable houseboats and engage in canoeing, angling or just enjoy the scenic views.
