17 Best Things to Do in Kerala, India

At the southern tip of India, the State of Kerala is generally not on the top of the list for first-timers to this vast country, but is growing in popularity for good reason. Palm trees, tea plantations, backwater excursions, mountain hikes – this tropical region of India, settled (or conquered) by Syrian Christians, King Solomon’s Jews, Portuguese Catholics, Dutch Protestants, and of course the British, has been more diverse in population than any other area of the country.

The following recommendations cover three distinct areas of Kerala: Munnar in the mountains, the city of Cochin on the waterfront, and the thread of rivers and channels that form the Kerala Backwaters.

And because taking a cooking class enhances any visit to a foreign land, I’ve included information about the award winning cookbook author, Nimi Sunilkumar, who has opened her home in Munnar to foodies eager to learn about, and create, the foods of Kerala.
