The tourism of the state is incomplete without the spectacular backwaters of Alleppey, the scenic beauty of Munnar, the wild life sanctuary of Thekkady, the agricultural fields of Waynard to name a few. Munnar is a famous hill station in South India where the lofty mountains are covered by tea farms that offers a splendid view from the hilltop. There are waterfalls that accentuate the beauty of Munnar. You can try the adventurous water sports in Munnar as well as paraglide through the misty valleys of Munnar.

Other places of interest in Kerala include the Varkala beach which is a serene beach for the tourists who want to spend some alone time in solitude. It is a pilgrimage destination of the Hindus and the beach is also known as “papanasam”, meaning the destroyer of all sins. Beside the beach there is the Janardhana temple, Kappil Lake and the Sivagiri math that are worth visiting to know the rich cultures and traditions of Kerala. The Kovalam Beach is yet another pristine beach of Kerala. But unlike the Varkala Beach, the Kovalam beach remains crowded for the maximum time of the year. The lighthouse near the beach offers a beautiful view of the beach from atop. The beach has a crescent shape so it looks like a crescent moon when watched from the top of the light house. There is a mosque near the beach named the Vizhinjam mosque that also looks amazing from the lighthouse.
One of the best feature of Kerala tourism places are the backwaters, where one can enjoy the ride on houseboats with your friends and family. The best season to visit Kerala is during the winter that is from October to December when Kerala looks greener and is in its full form. You can enjoy the traditional food of Kerala wrapped in banana leaves.
