On Foot in Kerala

Discover the diversity of tropical Kerala on this walking holiday to India's far south. We trek among the forests and grasslands of the mountainous Western Ghats - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's top ten biodiversity 'hot spots'. We also walk in search of wildlife in the Periyar National Park. In the tranquil backwaters we ramble through villages, meeting the locals and spending the night aboard a coir-roofed houseboat. Exploring on foot is the best way to discover the culture and landscapes of God's Own Country.

Trip highlights

  • Western Ghats - Trek amongst the plantations and jungle of this biodiversity 'hot spot'
  • Meesapulimala Peak - Enjoy the views from one of South India's highest peaks (2635m)
  • Backwaters cruise - Observe daily life in the tranquil Backwaters aboard a converted rice barge
  • Village walks - Meet the sociable Keralan people on rambles through the Backwaters
  • Kochi - Explore colonial architecture and city sights on a walking tour

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip Kochi

Our Kerala adventure starts in the harbour city of Kochi, a gathering place for merchants and traders since antiquity. Beginning with the arrival of Jewish and Arab spice traders in the first century AD, its prosperity and importance increased with the arrival of the Portuguese, who were later followed by the Dutch and the English. This eclectic heritage has invested the city with a fascinating mix of styles and influences.

Day 2 - Morning tour of historic Kochi; drive to Munnar

This morning we drive to Fort Kochi and take a walking tour of India's oldest European settlement. We take in the architectural charms of the Church of St Francis and some of the other notable colonial buildings - the site of the city's 16th century Jewish synagogue (closed on Fridays), the oldest in the Commonwealth and the exterior of the Mattancherry Palace, originally built by the Portuguese as a gift for the Raja of Cochin in 1555, but later extensively renovated by the Dutch. In the afternoon we then drive inland to Munnar and the stunning vistas of the Western Ghats. The 140 kilometre drive takes us into the heart of tea country, where fresh mountain air and tropical forests share the landscapes with spice plantations and tea estates. Our walking tour today is graded easy and we expect it to take approximately two hours.

Accommodation: Edassery Eastend(or similar)

Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 3 - Hike to Seven Malai Hills through tea, coffee and spice plantations

Our first day's hiking in the Ghats begins from the small village of Nagarmudi (1500 m), just a short drive from old Munnar. Beginning with a gradual climb, we ascend through the tea plantations up into the Seven Malai Hills, passing crops of coffee and cardamom as we make our way to the summit (1700 m). The walk today will take us around four to five hours, but the views more than compensate for the hard climb, as we are presented with some spectacular panoramas across the Chittrapuram Dam and out towards the Anamudi Peak, Munnar and the local villages. Descending to our vehicle, we then drive back to Munnar for our second night. Our 11 kilometre walk today is moderately-graded and we expect it to take approximately four to five hours.

Accommodation: Edassery Eastend(or similar)

Day 4 - Trek to Silent Valley through tea estates and shola forest

A short drive via the forest office this morning brings us to Signal Point, the start of our three day point to point hike. Beginning at around 1600 m, we start with a walk through a landscape blanketed with tea plantations and sholas of eucalyptus, as we make our way past the Gudarelle Tea Factory and up towards the grassland. The views today are simply breath-taking and the endless array of tea estates laid out before us give a real flavour of the area. Stopping to enjoy a picnic lunch in the shade of the forest, we then continue climbing towards our camp in the Silent Valley, situated in a meadow close to a small stream. Ascending to a height of 2000 m, today's walk will cover around 15 kilometres, taking us between five and six hours to reach the camp.

Accommodation: Silent Valley Camp(or similar)

Simple Camping
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 5 - Trek to Meesapulimala Peak (2635 m)

Leaving camp after breakfast this morning, we begin the ascent of Meesapulimala Peak, the second highest in South India. The trail towards the summit takes us from rough grassland and up onto the ridge line, where we continue climbing through patches of open grassland towards the peak. The journey to the top will take us around three to four hours and from its lofty heights, the views look down across Kerala and Tamil Nadu (if the summit isn't shrouded in mist). You might even pass the odd herd of Nilgiri Thar (a type of wild goat) on the way. After a chance to rest and enjoy the scenery, we then descend towards Rhodo Valley (2300 m), stopping off for a picnic lunch en route. As the camping area at Rhodo Valley is currently closed, we return by jeep for a second night at our Silent Valley camp. Our walk today is moderately-graded and we expect it to take approximately six to seven hours to cover eight kilometres.

Accommodation: Silent Valley Camp(or similar)

Simple Camping
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 6 - Hike to Top Station through villages and plantations

Today provides us with our longest day's walking, as we meander our way through a stunning backdrop of verdant plantations and vivid red rhododendron forests. This part of the Western Ghats is home to a staggering array of life, with wild boar and Atlas moths sharing the stage with a dazzling mix of local flora. As we climb, the views out across the local countryside take in villages and lakes, before we begin a gradual winding descent towards Yallapatty village and lunch. The four hour walk this morning ends with a short climb to the village, where we enjoy our picnic surrounded by the vegetable gardens planted by the local tea workers. Our post lunch walk then takes us on through the tea plantations towards our final camp at Top Station (1900 m). Our walk today is moderately-graded and we expect it to take approximately seven-and-a-half hours to cover 17 kilometres.

Accommodation: Top Station Camp(or similar)

Simple Camping
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 7 - Drive to Thekkady, gateway to Periyar National Park

Breaking camp for the last time today we drive back towards Munnar and on to Thekkady, gateway to the Periyar National Park. Taking up much of the morning, the 160 kilometre drive weaves across the Western Ghats before reaching Thekkady later this morning. This part of India has long been renowned for its abundant spices. Indeed, it was to the spice rich shores of the Malabar Coast that Christopher Columbus was heading when he bumped into America by mistake. After lunch we take a short walk around a spice garden, enjoying an aromatic wander through crops of black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon and clove. There should also be time to explore the local bazaar before dinner.

Accommodation: Hotel Grand Thekkady(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 8 - Trekking in Periyar National Park

This morning we enjoy a walk in observation of the flora and fauna in the Periyar National Park. Set around the picturesque shores of Lake Periyar and one of the largest parks in South India, it is home to an incredible diversity of wildlife including elephant, tiger (although we don't expect to see one!), sambar, wild pigs, bison, monkeys and langurs. It also boasts some 112 species of butterflies and 246 species of birds including cormorants, darters, ospreys, kingfishers, hornbills and kites. The walk will take between two to three hours, after which there may be an opportunity this afternoon to enjoy an optional boat trip on the lake. Please be aware, tickets for the cruise are only available locally and are on a first come, first served basis. Our walk today is graded easy, mostly flat and at a leisurely pace as we take in the flora and fauna of the park. We expect it to take approximately two to three hours.

Accommodation: Hotel Grand Thekkady(or similar)

Standard Hotel

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 9 - Drive to Alleppey on the coast; Backwaters houseboat cruise

Driving to the coastal town of Alleppey this morning we head for the myriad canals and channels that make up the Kerala Backwaters, boarding a traditional houseboat for an overnight cruise through the region. A time-honoured form of transport, these wonderfully characterful boats are made of anjili wood and bamboo and come with en-suite twin bedrooms and an on-board chef, providing the perfect way to enjoy the scenic and cultural beauty of this remarkable setting. Along theses narrow channels, the industrious villagers survive on narrow spits of land, keeping cows, pigs, chickens and even cultivating vegetable gardens. Nothing goes to waste: the shells from the fresh water mussels are burnt to make building lime and coir is used for just about everything. This evening we'll moor up along the banks of Vembanad Lake.

Accommodation: Kerala Houseboat(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 10 - Backwaters village walk; drive to hotel near Kochi airport

After a relaxing breakfast on board, we then drive on to the village of West Chennamkary in the heart of the Backwaters for a short walk around some of the local villages, soaking up the atmosphere of a region that provided Arundhati Roy with the inspiration for her book, 'The God of Small Things'. We'll enjoy a traditional Keralan lunch with a local family before driving back to Kochi later in the afternoon. As most international flights depart Kochi early morning, we spend our final night at a hotel not far from the city's airport. Our walk today is graded easy and we expect it to take up to two-and-a-half hours at a very leisurely pace.

India Holidays & Tours

Climate

There is considerable variation between the different regions of India but, in general, the climate is tropical. Summer temperatures on the plains are very hot, but cooled by the South-West Monsoon, which lasts from June- September. During these months it can be very wet and therefore very humid. At altitude, temperatures can become quite cool at night even in the summer and may drop below freezing between December and February so warm clothing is necessary. In the winter, northern and mid India can be very cool, with cold evenings, so warm clothing, including plenty of layers, are essential. The south of India remains warm and sunny during the winter months.

Optional activities

Clothing

Due to the diversity of altitude encountered on tour, you will need to bring a range of comfortable lightweight clothing that can be layered according to the fluctuating temperature. On the coast and in the Backwaters you can expect both days and nights to be warm and humid and lightweight clothing is all that is needed. In the Ghats and especially on the 3-day trek, nights can be cold (possibly below freezing in Rhodo Valley). We recommend walking trousers and shorts, breathable T-shirtshirts, walking socks, fleece jacket, waterproof jacket, warm hat and gloves and sunhat. Whilst monsoon rainy season is from June through to early October, it can rain outside of this time. When it has rained there may be leeches in the Ghats and we highly recommend bringing your own leech socks which can be bought through outdoor equipment providers or online through retailers such as Amazon. Please bear in mind that shorts and tight revealing clothing worn by women can cause offence and unwelcome interest.

Footwear

We recommend you bring lightweight walking boots with ankle support, make sure that your boots are worn-in and comfortable before the start of the trip. Also trainers or sandals for relaxing and general wear. We suggest that on international flights you either carry your walking boots in your hand luggage or wear them - should your luggage be lost or delayed, your own boots are the one thing that will be irreplaceable.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

You will need a daypack and your main luggage. Daypack: 30-35 litres recommended. During the course of the Western Ghats trek you do not have daytime access to your luggage which is transferred between camps by jeep. In any mountain region the weather can change rapidly and you must be equipped for this eventuality. Your daypack should therefore be large enough to carry waterproofs, fleece jacketweater, long trousers (if walking in shorts), warm hat and gloves, sun hat, sun cream, water bottle and your camera. It should be waterproof or have a rain cover. Main luggage: As this will be transported between the camps by jeep and stored overnight in your tent this needs to be a kitbag, large rucksack or soft holdall style bag that is easily stored and transported.

Equipment

Bring a 3-season sleeping bag (whilst on trek you will be provided with a 5 centimetre thick foam sleeping mattress), 2 litre water bottle, sun cream, sunglasses and head torch. Bring your walking poles if you usually use them. An umbrella is useful for both rain and as a sun shade.

Tipping

Explore leader
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognised part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. Accordingly, you should allow £30 for tipping of trek staff, houseboat crew, drivers, guides etc. In order to make things easier for you, the Tour Leader may organise a group tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.

Foreign Exchange
Local currency
Indian Rupee Recently new 500, 1000 and 2000 rupee notes have been bought in to circulation and as the old notes are no longer accepted there have been some cash flow issues. You don't need to worry about being given old notes as it's very easy to tell the difference, the new notes are pristine in comparison with most Indian money which is fairly tatty.
Recommended Currency For Exchange
GBP/US$ are the best currency to change into local currency.
Where To Exchange
The Indian rupee is a restricted currency and it is best not to obtain in the UK as rates are very poor. You can either change money at the airport on arrival or in major towns during the tour. Your Tour Leader will advise you on the best places in each town. Both GBP and USD cash are easy to exchange at the airport and at hotels however you will be restricted to changing £60 cash at a time and it's not possible to change money at these locations using a credit or debit card.
ATM Availability
ATMs are available in most large cities in India but they are very limited elsewhere so please do not rely on this.
Credit Card Acceptance
Very rarely, only in the larger outlets.
Travellers Cheques
Opportunities to exchange are limited.
