    In the evening a special treat awaits - a performance of the famous Kathakali classical dance.

  • Day 2 : Cochin

    This morning enjoy a city tour of Cochin - known to the ancient Greeks, Romans, Jews, Arabs and Chinese as an important trading centre. The Portuguese established the first European settlement in India here and the city was later colonised by the Dutch and then the British.

    Visit St. Francis Church built by the Portuguese, where explorer Vasco Da Game was first buried. Also see Mattancherry Palace (also known as the Dutch Palace) with its old murals depicting scenes from Hindu legends associated with Shiva, Vishnu and Krishna (closed Fridays); Jew Town and the Jewish Synagogue (closed Fridays & Saturdays). Time permitting, you can also visit the Dhobi Khana communal wash-house run by the Tamil community, or the pilgrimage church of St George in Edappally, one of the oldest and largest churches in India. Then walk to see the old shore-operated Chinese fishing nets at Fort Kochi, each operated by a team of up to six fishermen.

    Your driver will then introduce you to the beauty of rural Kerala, as you travel 4-hours up steep winding roads to the scenic hill station at Munnar with its vast tea plantations. After checking into your hotel, relax in the clear mountain air of this beautiful summer resort.

    There are 35 different mammals in Periyar National Park, a 400 sq. mile (640 sq. km) wildlife sanctuary that it is an important elephant and tiger reserve and home to many threatened species. However tiger sightings are rare as they are so difficult to spot in the jungle.

This network of backwaters, lakes and rivers stretches over 930 miles (1,500 km) and provides a vital waterway for transporting people and their produce, once used to transport goods from isolated interior villages to the larger towns but now largely used for pleasure.

    As the water is level with the land here, spend the afternoon relaxing and watching the agricultural lives of the people who live along the canals and work in the rice paddy fields, as you cruise through the Kerala Backwaters.
