About Kerala – "God's own Country"
erala, India’s more verdant state, has several unique geographical features which makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Kerala has been rated by National Geographic Traveler as one of the world's 50 must-see destinations in the world.
The lush flora of Kerala is very distinctive. The word Kerala has been derived from the term “Keralam” in the native Malayalam language, meaning, “Land of the coconut palm trees”. Kerala is fondly called “God’s own Country” as it is blessed with the bounty of nature in its pristine best, rich traditions and culture and myriad art forms. Washed by a 600 kilometre long coastline and carpeted by some of the last remaining stretches of tropical evergreen rainforests, Kerala is also blessed by a unique network of backwaters that criss-cross the picture book villages and cooled by mist-clad hill stations and spice gardens that stretch endlessly.
