Kerala for itself offers enough of great experiences, but we have decided to let the tour start in Bangalore. Plus the visit of Mysore there are not only two attractive places added, but it makes the route more comfortable. After these two places you reach the mountainous area Wayanad, our heartplace for village-visits with best insight into the daily lifef. Who lives where, who does what, how are the communal structures and how is the development – enough topics to get to know the locals. After that with Kozhikode and Kochi it gets more urban and more encounters broaden your horizon. The Backwaters you will get to know in an alternative way – a clear advantage and more understandable insight than by the usual private houseboattours. All these impressions will be complimented with a stay at the beach of Varkala in a wonderful Ayurveda-Wellness-Resort. This tour is for people, who are curious, how people live somewhere else and are interested in fair tourism. Nearly the whole offer consists of travel-structures, which are initiated by the locals and the sustainability is definitely there. More experiences for the travellers, more pleasure and fairness for the locals.
