Description

This state in Southwestern India is a spicy experience, and not only for its cardamom and pepper laced cuisine, one of the few in India to feature meat regularly. The Blue Mountains of the Ghat range contrast with low rice paddies, while coconut trees abound. Meandering rivers and lagoons, called backwaters, are pathways for the ubiquitous houseboat, which will float you from one village to the next, taking in the local culture. The spectacular kathakali, a type of religious dance theater, originates here, as does theyyam, a ritual trance experience. The capital, Trivandrum serves as a convenient jumping off place to start your travels, while just north is Varkala, a cliff-protected, lazy beach where you can hang your hat (or just toss it on the ground) and soak up the sun.
