    Fantastic finds in the Kerala region and have bookmarked this page for future reference. Been planning a trip to Kerala for a while as I do like a bit of luxury as well. But for me I want to check out the sunset, I am a total sucker for them and the one shown here looks totally dreamy. 🙂

        This is a superb post. You have given the best if hidden places. I haven’t been to any of these places in Kerala. Though I have explored backwaters of Kerala, but not Valiyaparamba’s backwaters. I am too keen of exploring these places. I am bookmark this post.

    Thank you for this article. I love Kerala!
    I’ve been to India three times, so far. And I spent one of my travel to Kerala. In 2012, 2.5 weeks, I traveled around this region. Kerala is delightful, very different from central India. I have visited most of the places you present in your article. One of my favorites is Kolukkumalai Estate. I love backwaters of Thiruvallam and Valiyaparamba, and Kerala’s beaches, too. For me, it was a fantastic time, and I highly recommend visiting Kerala for those who haven’t been there yet.
    Unfortunately, I didn’t hike to Ponmudi. It seems a fascinating place. I love hiking, so if I back one day, I will do this hike for sure. I haven’t been to Kakkathuruthu Island, too. Your sunset looks amazing! Great photos and presentations of the most beautiful and exciting places in Kerala. I wonder how prices have changed over the last few years. Hope I back one day.

    I’ve always said that if I ever get to visit India, Kerala would be the first place on the list. All of these places are ‘on the track’ for me, as I’ve yet to visit! All the backwaters look especially beautiful, and I also like the look of the tea estate. Hoping one day to actually get to see these places for myself.

      If you love nature you cannot afford to not visit Kerela plus they got some amazing culture.

    I’d love to visit Kerala one day, the image I have of the pretty house boats is something I must experience. But I really appreciated learning more of what there is to see, in particular the bird sanctuary (we are big bird and wildlife watchers), and also Ponmudi hill station, what views!

    Our daughter is an ornithologist and I am sure she would love to visit the Pakshipathalam bird sanctuary. She is always looking to add to her life list of birds. A river tour looks like a relaxing spot for me to enjoy. Although a hidden beach would also work for me. Especially if I can get fresh seafood! The views from Ponmudi look simply stunning. I would hope to be able to make this hike! Forests, mountains and backwaters – all a great reason to visit Kerala.

    That is quite an amazing list of offbeat destinations in Kerala. I have been to Kerala twice. Yet, I was not aware of so many of these places. Nelliyampathy and the hidden beaches of Neeleshwar look gorgeous. Time to plan my 3rd trip to the state.

    This post comes at perfect timing when I am looking forward to travel to India and visit Kerala in December. I must admit that some of the more common attractions like the Backwater house boat trip is one you need to do , some of the off beat things you have mentioned appeal more to me. The sea food is certainly high on my list as I love it and it seems Kerala is great for fresh seafood. The beaches of Kerala are another thing I want to tick of my list as I have heard some good things about the, Overall I have book marked this post to read and refer when i get there.

    Wow, these are some really great offbeat destinations in Kerala. Most of these places are off the tourists’ radar. Backwaters in Kerala are quite famous, but I think Thiruvallam looks more serene. The trek to Pakshipathalam Bird Sanctuary also sounds quite interesting. Would love to explore a few of these places on my next visit to Kerala.

    All awesome spots. I loved my time at Kovalam Beach. Me and my wife spent 2 weeks there.
