Cocohol Kerala Tourism
Tucked away in the southern most part of India and abutted by the Arabian sea, Kerala is one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world with clean sandy beaches and nature at her lushest and greenest.
God's own country is all about beaches, backwaters, virgin forests, golden paddy fields and rich coconut groves. Right from food, to unique houseboats, rich culture, enchanting art forms - Kerala is definitely a "never miss" experience. A 560 km long narrow stretch of tropical land laid carefully in the south-west coast of India, Kerala is adorned with dense tropical forests, cliffs, ghats, beaches, rocky coasts, backwaters, bays and 44 rivers of coruscating brilliance
Reasons to opt Kerala tourism are many apart from its scenic beauty. This blessed land is also the mother of one of the most trusted branches of medicine - Ayurveda. Mohiniyattam (The dance of enchantress depicting feminine love and grace), Kathakali (one of the oldest theatre forms in the world), Koodiyattam (An old Theatrical presentation in Sanskrit), Chakyar koothu (mono-Act filled with humor along with good food for thought) and Pulluvan pattu (Kerala's folk music sung for the serpent deities) - are the brilliant art forms born in Kerala to name a few. Kerala's martial art, which has its origin in 4th century A.D- Kalari payattu-, is renowned worldwide. This is believed to be an Art formed by Sage Parasurama.
Kerala also boasts of hundred percent literacy, world-class health care systems, India's lowest infant mortality and highest life expectancy rates. Kerala is also India's cleanest State. Kerala is one among the best in India in the matter of health and hygiene as well.
The most powerful attraction of this paradise is perhaps its inherent harmony. The great and the small, the mysterious and the mundane, the divine and the earthly coexist like a melody - simple and infectious. Geographically insular enough to preserve what is unique to it, Kerala opens up lovingly to share her treasures with seeking travellers. Peace and pleasure enfold you from the minute you step into this pristine haven.
