- Cycling in Kerala’s beautiful landscapes and villages
- Encounter diverse cultures and religions
- Enjoy a traditional houseboat cruise
Southern India is a magical place: beautiful landscapes, fascinating towns and villages, long white beaches and superb food make for an idyllic Kerala cycling holiday. In the cool heights of the Western Ghats the sanctuaries at Bandipur and Mudumalai hide wild elephants, tigers and leopards in jungle and bamboo forests.
Cycle around old forts and up to religious rock shrines and ride through colourful villages where rural life has remained little-changed for centuries. Further south, in Kerala, Hinduism has produced some of India's most elaborately decorated temples. A relaxing boat trip on the quiet backwaters here offers a change of pace from cycling in Kerala, before the final coastal ride to Varkala and a chance to laze on the beach and reflect on an unforgettable experience of rural India.
