A holiday in Kerala can be an incredible as well an intimidating experience. South India tour packages would be incomplete without visiting Kerala. Noshir Lavangia talks about how Kerala tours can be liberating for solo women travellers.
Almost all South India tour packages include a trip to Kerala. Yet, women tourists are discouraged from travelling to Kerala alone. However, safety depends on a lot of circumstances, not excluding attitude towards a challenging environment.
The State of Kerala, much like the rest of India, maintains a sense of social conservatism. Therefore, it is important not to behave in a manner or dress in a way that is socially and culturally conflicting. To do so, would affect the way a traveller is treated. Wearing culturally appropriate clothes and dressing appropriately keeps provocative stares and unwanted advances from men, at bay. Generally speaking, Kerala poses only a few difficulties for solo women travellers. Violent offenses are rare, but what you’d really need to focus on are ‘opportunistic thieves’ overcharging you. Probably something to think about, while deciding upon your preferred Kerala tours operator.
God’s own Country!
Blessed with nature’s beauty, Kerala is a serene haven that offers spiritual connectivity and understanding to all travellers and vacationers. Most of Kerala is green and lush. The sleepy backwaters of Kerala are a visual treat, sure to entice travellers, and keep them coming back for more tours of Kerala.
In fact, the alluring backwater destination of Kumarakom is one of the most common and popular holiday spots in Kerala. It is a collection of small islands, situated on the Vembanad Lake. Kumarkom is the source of Kerala’s reputation, for being ‘God’s Own Country!’ It is filled with coconut groves, mangrove forests, and lush green paddy fields connected with scintillating waterways. From wildlife sanctuaries to bird sanctuaries, to rowing a boat down the back waters or fishing, Kumarkom is the perfect therapeutic and relaxing holiday. Kumarkom is an example of nature at her bountiful best, and a reason to include it on South India tour packages.
Then there is Thekkady that consist of Tropical Forests. While, some areas provide dense evergreen forests that are pristine in structure. They also offer a variety of habitats, ensuring diversity in flora and fauna.
There are several South India tour packages and holidays to choose from. So the next time you are on holiday, choose a package that takes you to Kerala and experience the country of ‘God.’
