Exploring Kerala #1: A Journey towards the Green

Exploring Kerala #1:  A Journey towards the Green

It is said that Kerala is God’s own garden. It’s because of its beautiful greenery. The curvy leaves of coconut and banana trees in the background of clear blue sky and the broad hill range of the Western Ghats, which is painted with green by the plantation of tea, coffee, pineapple and so many things. On the other side, the coastal regions of Kerala are nourished by the Arabian Sea, lagoons, and the backwater. Hence, all over Kerala is covered with the green. And, it is also said that you can see you can see India’s best greenery in Kerala, only. I think I am lucky enough that I visited Kerala in the Monsoon when the state shows its best greenery.

A few days back, we progressed to a trip in Kerala. That was a family trip from Hyderabad to Kerala. There is a great scarcity of green in Hyderabad as it is situated in the Deccan Plateau of India, where rain is very less and the temperature is so eminent.  Hence, the mesmerizing greens of Kerala refreshed my eyes and soul.

The experience of travelling in Kerala and exploring its beauty are so vivid and broad that I cannot narrate it in one blog post. So, I decided to write my travelogue of exploring Kerala in several episodes.

We started our journey from Kachiguda Railway station of Hyderabad with Mangalore Express. After crossing Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu when the train entered into Kerala, the serenity of nature filled up my heart and soul. It seems like that the plantations, the paddy fields, the alluring coconut trees; all are intensely involved in the passionate decoration of God’s own Garden.

The Rail is the better way than the flight to travel in Kerala if you are staying at the southern or South-western regions of India.  The road trip is the best way to explore it, more intensely. One can experience the breathtaking scenic beauty throughout the Kerala only by the road trip or the rail tour.

Landscape: River

 

I don’t the name of the river. I found it during my journey and captured through the lens. All the photos are captured from the train during the journey. Keep reading the episodes. I will come with a more breathtaking beauty of Kerala in the next part of Exploring Kerala.

We visited Kerala during the so-called ‘winter’, that is, in December. But we had to switch on the ACs even during that time. Only later I came to know from a Keralite friend that the best season to visit Kerala is during the monsoon. You have chosen the right time. The landscape of the river is stunning… 🙂

Oh! Really! Even in the winter, you had to do that😮! Yes, the ultimate beauty of Kerala you can find in the monsoon if you aren’t not stuck by the rain 😃. Thanks for sharing your experience.

That would have been a great trip. But, I didn’t know about the place before the journey. So, I missed it. Thanks for mentioning about the place. Will keep in mind if I get a chance to visit Kerala again.
