Magical Escape: Explore the Treasures of Kerala in Three Days 

Kerala, a land of unparalleled beauty and rich cultural heritage, has always been a special attraction for travellers seeking a slice of paradise. With its lush green landscape, quiet backwaters and vibrant traditions, this enchanting destination was on my travel wish list. Finally, an opportunity opened up for me to start a three-day trip through Kerala, a trip that will leave an indelible mark on my soul. Let me take you on an unforgettable journey to this magical land.

How to reach Kerala?

My Kerala adventure began with a flight to Cochin International Airport, the main gateway to the state. This modern airport is well connected to major Indian cities  and several international destinations, making it convenient for travellers from all over the world. From the airport, I opted for a comfortable taxi or a private car to explore different places in Kerala. 

Best time to Visit Kerala?

The climate of Kerala is mainly tropical and is characterized by two main seasons: the southwest monsoon (June to September) and the northeast monsoon (October to November). The best time to visit Kerala is during the winter months, from December to February when the weather is pleasantly cool and ideal for outdoor activities. At this time, the sky is clear and the temperature is comfortable to visit Kerala and enjoy the beauty of nature. 

Tips to Note

  •  It is also important to consider the monsoon season when planning your trip. Monsoon brings a lot of rain but also gives the region a unique charm with lush green landscapes and waterfalls. If you don’t mind the occasional rain, visiting Kerala during the monsoon season can be a magical experience. 
  • Make the most of your Kerala adventure by packing light and breathable clothing suitable for the tropical climate. 
  • Keep your sunscreen, insect repellent and a pair of comfy shoes. 
  • It’s also a good idea to bring cash with you, as not all places can accept cards, especially in rural areas. 

Must Visit Places in Kerala

  • Munnar

Nestled between hills and tea plantations, Munnar is a haven of peace and natural beauty. This picturesque hill station is known for its sprawling tea houses, misty mountains and breathtaking waterfalls. Visiting the tea estates, learning about the tea making process and enjoying freshly brewed aromatic tea were the highlights of my visit. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Eravikulam National Park, home to the endangered Nilgiri Tahr, and witness awe-inspiring views of Mattupetty Dam and Echo Point.

  • Alleppey Backwaters

A trip to Kerala is incomplete without experiencing its famous backwaters. The backwaters of Alleppey offer a unique and serene experience that cannot be found anywhere else. Boarding a traditional houseboat and sailing through the labyrinthine canals surrounded by lush green landscapes, lush rice paddies and charming villages was a truly magical experience. Floating in the calm waters, I saw the unhurried pace of local life and glimpsed the daily routines of people living by the water bodies. 

  • Fort Kochi

Immerse yourself in the colonial charm of Fort Kochi, the historic quarter of Kochi city. Indian, Dutch, Portuguese and British influences merged in this vibrant area. I was drawn to the iconic chinese fishing nets, an intricate system of nets used by fishermen for centuries. A treasure trove of art galleries, shops and quaint cafes are discovered as you explore the narrow streets lined with charming colonial buildings. Visiting St. Francis Church, the oldest European church in India, and attending a traditional Kathakali dance performance experience added cultural depth to my trip. 

My Three Day Kerala Experience

  • Day 1

On the first day, I embarked on a scenic drive from Cochin to Munnar, immersing myself in the magnificence of nature unfolding before my eyes. Misty mountains, sprawling tea plantations and waterfalls welcomed me into a world of silence. I spent the day exploring tea farms, learning about the tea making process and enjoying fresh aromatic tea. The sunset at Echo Point was a mesmerizing sight, with the mountains painting the canvas in vivid hues. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I found the serene beauty of Munnar captured. 

  • Day 2

The second day was dedicated to diving in the quiet backwaters of Alleppey. I headed to the Alleppey boat dock where I boarded a traditional houseboat for an unforgettable cruise through the backwaters. As the boat glided along the narrow canals, I admired the idyllic scenery and peaceful atmosphere that surrounded me. The day culminated in a mesmerizing sunset over the backwaters, painting the sky in shades of orange and pink, a sight that will remain in my memory forever. 

  • Day 3

On the last day, I set out to explore the fascinating streets of Fort Kochi. With its charming mix of colonial architecture and vibrant cultural life, this historic neighborhood was a joy to explore. I started my day by visiting the iconic Chinese fishing nets, an integral part of the local fishing culture. It was a sight to see the fishermen skilfully using those massive nets against the background of the sea. I then wandered the narrow streets and found hidden gems like art galleries, spice markets and antique shops. The Mattancherry Palace, also known as the Dutch Palace, offered a glimpse into the historical past of the region with its magnificent murals and artifacts. In the evening, I was able to witness a mesmerizing Kathakali dance performance where the vivid costumes and intricate movements transported me to a bygone era. I ended my trip to Kerala with a sumptuous dinner where I tasted the flavors of authentic Kerala cuisine which included delicacies such as appam, stew and fish curry.

  • Final Remarks

My three-day journey through the mysterious landscapes of Kerala was a real feast for the senses. Kerala’s natural beauty, warm hospitality and vibrant traditions will forever hold a special place in my heart. I encourage every traveler to start their Kerala adventure and discover the magic that awaits in this exciting destination.
