• Kerala: God's Own Country


Why did we choose Kerala?

Cochin, known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, was an important spice trading center on the west coast of India from the 14th century. Steeped in historical relevance, Cochin was the first of the European colonies (Portuguese)
in colonial India. Munnar offers unparalleled scenic beauty and for once the comparisons of an Indian tourist spot with typical European counterparts is justified. Thekkady has one of the world’s most fascinating natural wildlife reserves – the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. Alleppey is the Venice of India with its numerous bridges that serve as a lifeline for the local people who lead a very earthy and traditional life.

What does this journey offer?

Traditionally known for its high literacy rate, higher women to men ratio, Ayurveda developments and being declared ‘State of Enlightenment’ by National Geographic Society, Kerala will give students three different perspectives. First, the progression of India’s oldest colony into a major port. Second, a perspective of effective wildlife conservation. Third, an experience of living in the backwaters.
