The southern Indian state of Kerala is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the country. Lord Curzon once described Kerala as the Venice of the East due to its gorgeous lagoons and idyllic white sandy beaches.
You can enjoy this all-inclusive day tour from Cochin with an expert guide and personal chauffeur. The tour includes a trip to Cherai beach, a backwater boat tour, and a visit to both Athirapilly and Vazhachal waterfalls.
Cherai beach is a 10-kilometer stretch of golden sand with the shallow ocean gently lapping in. Your day begins with an exploration of the beach and a swim in the serene waters of the Indian Ocean. Sometimes you can spot dolphins here!
Afterwards you will enjoy a tour of the scenic backwaters, stopping for lunch at a traditional Vedic village resort. This is a great chance to learn about the local culture and the manufacturing process of coir, a fiber made from the husk of coconuts.
The Athirapilly waterfall is the next stop. Located at the entrance to the Sholayar ranges, the waterfall is a great place for bird watching and a popular picnic spot. Sit, listen and watch as the water drops 80-feet. This, in combination with the lush greenery, will infuse energy into any tired soul.
You will also visit the nearby Vazhachal waterfall before being driven back to your hotel in Cochin.
