A Drive through Kerala Pt.1

What better day than today to reach the 1947 hit mark on my blog. A Happy Independence Day to all. May wisdom persevere.

I proudly present to you on this day the 5th entry into 7 Days 7 Posts, a post, more of a drive through the majestic and scenic Kerala. Sit back and enjoy the ride!

By Train
We arrived at Trichur Rly. Station in mild drizzle, already awe-struck and happy with the journey. The very first opinion we all had in unison – It’s so green!

On Road.
Our opinion did not change, but only matured. We drove a 100 kms from Athirapally Waterfalls in Thrissur to Mararikulam Beach in Alapuzha (pronounced Alaporra) through some amazing views, tea plantations, rubber estates, ghat roads and tall waterfalls!

Rubber (the white paste) getting collected in the cup tied below. Interesting how the hat is placed to protect rubber from mixing with water or the grooves which are made on the trunk to decide on the flow of extracted Rubber.

Not the Athirapally Waterfalls

A drive by the Backwaters late in the night. Here, I cut an improvised Birthday Cake. Mine. 😀

By the Backwaters!!
Oops, to do it justice, backwaters demand a dedicated post for itself.
Just a glimpse of what’s in store…

  1. It is beautiful Loved those photos of fog up on the mountains, the clouds. Truly mesmerizing. Sadly I have not visited Kerela yet, though it’s on my bucket list.

    I am sure you guys had loads of fun, pictures speaks for itself 🙂

    Cheers

  2. Refreshing, wasn’t it? I just did some travelling in Kerala after a little more than a couple of years and I must say, I’d almost forgotten how really green the state is. Ah! refreshing. 🙂
