Kerala is a destination of a lifetime. The timeless beauty of the palm fringed beaches, the majesty of the undulating hills, the serenity of the pristine backwaters and the enchanting woods and forests bowl you over. Its small terrain holds diverse geographical features and cultures, and is a wonder in itself. Like the rest of Kerala, Onam is a special time here.
