5-Day Itinerary to Explore Kerala

This Monsoon with Kids

Kerala is a haven for family vacations given its varied landscape and list of things to do. Often called as ’God’s Own Country, ’Kerala’s tourism offerings flaunt the excitement and fun of the mountains, forests, and beaches. This is heightened during the monsoon season when the state blushes and blooms in the rains. It is the best time to explore the true beauty of Kerala.

  2. I did Kerala trip when I was in 11th Grade but an elaborate one. But you have compiled all the gems of Kerala in 5 days which is good for first timers and those who have less time. Kochi and Munnar are my favorites too as Kochi have very different influences of various cultures and Munnar has beautiful green nature. I too recommend these places if you are having less time or going for first time.

  3. It’s akeays nice to read about itenaries with kids and this one for 5 days in Kerala seems perfect. I would live to visit Kerala with my kids and show them this part of India. The Kathakali woukd surely be amazing for my daughter who loves dancing. The character Fort Kochi another one on my list to tick off. And to top it all the lovely monsoon. Thanks for a great post.

  4. Kerala sure looks beautiful! I never made it to that side of the India when I visited, but I have always hoped to return. Good to know it’s a good place to go during the monsoon! So much rain and water – I can imagine it would really make everything flourish and bloom beautifully.

  5. This sounds like a perfect 5 day Kerala itinerary. The Kathakali dancer looks amazing. They put in so much efforts for all that makeover. Mattancherry Palace and Paradesi Synagogue sound quite interesting places. The greenery at the tea plantations is a sight to behold. Visiting the Lakkam Waterfalls and going for wildlife tours are the activities I would not want to miss.

  6. That’s a good itinerary, but as I always say., Kerala, like Gujarat and some other places needs months together to explore well! Haha…
    Done your day 4-5. Been on a day trip to Cochin. Yet to explore all.
    That said I hope Kerala gets back to is form, hale & healthy, from it’s depths of floods!
