Enjoy a great time in India through the myriad network of canals and waterways of Kerala in this tour by Greaves.
Kerala hugs the Malabar coast of South India. Warm and tropical throughout the year, it presents a breathtaking vista of silent valleys clothed in the richest green. High in the backdrop of the western ghats are tea plantations, whilst down on the coast nestle palm-fringed beaches.
Visit the highlights of Kerala travelling first to the fascinating port city of Kochi (‘the Venice of the East’), then into the hills and spice growing areas to search for elephant in Periyar National Park.
Travel through the backwaters on this tour by Greaves. There is plenty of time to unwind and explore the myriad network of canals and waterways that cover much of the coastal plains of this state of India.
Finally, enjoy your vacation tour with a unique experience of a night on a converted riceboat and cruise peacefully, often unnoticed, around the lake watching village life of India on the riverbanks going on all around.
