Even though you cannot do much (other than attending the wedding) in Alathur, there are enough options for you to roam around, especially if you’re visiting Kerala for the first time.  Kerala is famous for its beaches, backwaters, culture, spices, hills and religious places. Going by the state tourism department moniker “God’s Own Country”, it is blessed with abundant greenery, tropical forests, a fertile coastal plain, fishing, tourism and a relatively stable political situation.

Here are a few options you might want to consider:

  • Kerala backwaters – stretching across central Kerala, a must-try experience
  • Munnar – One Of the most untouched hill stations in India
  • Silent Valley National Park – rain forest
  • Thekkady – Periyar Tiger Reserve
  • Guruvayoor – the Krishna temple here is one of the most important pilgrimage centers in Kerala
  • Athirappilly Falls – a 80 feet high waterfall at the threshold of the Sholayar ranges (remember the song Barsa Re from Guru)
