India - Kerala (PDF Chapter)
This is the Kerala chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
For many travellers, Kerala is South India’s most serenely beautiful state. A slender coastal strip is shaped by its layered landscape: almost 600km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a network of glistening backwaters; and the spice- and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats.
- cruise the backwaters in a houseboat or punted canoe from Alappuzha, Kollam or Kumarakom
- spot wild elephants, trek and relax in remote forest accommodation in Wayanad
- watch the days slip-slide away at the clifftop beach resort of Varkala
- restaurants & accommodation
