Kerala and the South

The landscapes in South India are green and the pace of life is slower. This is an ideal region for relaxing into the local way of life as you float down Kerala's waterways aboard a houseboat.

Why Kerala and the South?

Start your journey through India’s south in Karnataka, where ancient, well-preserved temples pepper the region. See the towering UNESCO World Heritage Site at Hampi before visiting the carefully carved ruins at Somanathapura. At Badami, you can trek to the floating, rose-hued complex of Mysore.

Tamil Nadu features eight UNESCO sites, including the Great Living Chola Temples and the carved ruins at Mahabalipuram, which date to the 7th and 8th centuries. Don’t miss the Meenakshi Amman Temple – a marvellous technicolour monument reaching 170 feet high. Kerala is our favourite place to wrap up a South Indian sightseeing tour. The quiet beaches and waterways amid the lush vegetation are ideal for relaxing. Kerala is a popular destination for yoga and meditation retreats and features lovely eco-lodges that serve sublime local cuisine.
