Inside Kerala and Karnataka

An ever-increasing number of holiday-makers are coming to Kerala, India’s most literate state, to enjoy its wonderful beaches and legendary hospitality.

However there is so much more to this diverse area than many of its visitors ever realise and this trip aims to dip below the surface of Keralan society to discover something of its food, its traditions and its artistic contributions, be that in dance, craftwork or even its own unique martial art, kalarippayattu.

Neighbouring Karnataka is much less visited and yet within its southern region can be found some of the subcontinent’s most impressive temples and sculptures dating back over 800 years. Dividing these two states are the Western Ghats, an imposing ridge of strikingly beautiful mountains which we will explore from both the Keralan side and from a coffee and spice plantation in Coorg on the Karnatakan side.

This is a great trip for those that demand more of their trips that just sun, sea and sand. Come and discover the true delights of two of South India’s most welcoming states.
