Alright folks, if you’ve landed here while searching for the offbeat side of Kerala tourism, rejoice. That, since I’m not going to write about the usual list. This list is largely based on my experiences in Kerala where I went road tripping in October 2014. Kerala made me fall in love with it, a usual statement coming from an ardent lover of Himalayas. To know what made that happen, here’s sharing my list of things to do in Kerala.
I packed my bags for a road trip, still figuring out a perfect itinerary for Kinnaur and Spiti, with little expectations and more of apprehensions. It had been raining quite heavily in the region I was heading off for, complete with landslide scares and more. So much so that friends were messaging me to ditch the trip for some time later. But then, I was waiting for the trip from past few months and the very thought of changing my travel plans was saddening me. So, yes, I packed my bags and left.
Diu, the more famous one of Daman and Diu, doesn’t usually finds a place in a traveller’s list. Perhaps, owing to the assumption that there is little when it comes to things to do in Diu. Though Diu is not Goa (it’s so much more solitary than Goa), there was something about it that made me book the tickets and land here on a sunny day in January, 2014.
Don’t ever buy tea from the tea estates or the very fancy tea shops. Talk to the local people and they’ll tell you where to get the best tea from. If you think I missed anything that deserves a mention in this post on the best things to do at Darjeeling, leave a comment below and I would be off to it on my next visit.
