Getting Off the Beaten Track in Kerala – 5 Ideas

One of the most popular tourist destinations in India, the southern state of Kerala has a lot to offer to a discerning traveller who is looking for roads and places less travelled.  

1. Silent Valley National Park, Palakkad
Start with one of the best kept secrets of Southern India – Silent Valley is a mystic place boasting amazing biodiversity and a sprawling tropical rainforest. 

2. Nelliampathy, Palakkad
One more stunning destination in Palakkad, Nelliampathy hill station is less crowded than its more famous counterparts and is a real gem for tea and coffee lovers with beautiful estates abounding there.

3. Kumbalangi, Kochi
Yes, Kerala has its own ecotourism village. It is a picturesque fishing hamlet in the Kochi backwaters with its signature sight being Chinese fishing nets. There are several homestays to choose from in order to give your visit a more authentic twist.

4. Edakkal Caves, Wayanad
Definitely an offbeat destination, the caves in Wayanad are covered with ancient inscription and other traces of the gone civilization. Sounds intriguing, does it not? But to reach the caves you will need to hike for about 1.2 km up the hill.

5. Muzhappilangad Beach, Kannur
The only beach in Kerala you can drive through. In April, there is an annual beach festival drawing hordes of drivers who perform serious stunts there.
