Namaste Travel has created a varied itinerary to ensure you never get bored. One moment you will see the splendour of the famous Bull Temple in Bengaluru which houses a huge monolithic idol of Nandi. But then hours later be awe inspired by Tipu Sultan’s Fort. For a total change of scenery you will ride on an elephant in Periyar and top off the trip by soaking up the sunshine on the beaches of Kovalam.
The getaway includes many tours to allow you to see all the hidden charms of the region. You are bound to be mesmerised by Ooty - which is a feast for the eyes, with its lofty, eucalyptus covered mountains and dense forests.
If you love history then you are in for a treat. Visit Fort Kochi and walk to the church of St Francis which is the oldest European-built church in the country. Days later pay homage to India’s great leader at the Gandhi Memorial Museum which houses historical relics from the freedom movement.
If you love nothing more than unwinding with a cuppa prepare to be amazed in Munnar where you will visit the Tea Museum of Tata Tea and the Kundala tea plantations. As you walk among the mountain slopes covered with evergreen tea plantations, you can view the entire process of making tea, right from the plucking of tea leaves to their processing. There is also the chance to go on a spice plantation tour and lose yourself in the heady scent of nutmeg, ginger, vanilla and curry leaves.
We understand that getting a good night’s sleep is important and that is why the holiday includes accommodation at unique hotels including the Rainforest Hotel in Athirapally close to the stunning Athirapally Water Fall and Vashacal Water Fall. And in Alleppey you will board a traditional houseboat for an overnight stay. Let the gentle backwater of the canal rock you to sleep for a magical night like no other.
