Eco Tourism in Kerala

Eco-tourism is a growing sector in the tourist industry in Kerala, India, which has taken off substantially as the state has made numerous of its regions known to the world for their exquisite landscapes and natural beauty. As it is one of the greenest tourist destinations in the country, the state has become a perfect hub for promoting eco-tourism in a big way. When planning an eco-tour in the state, here are tips for choosing Kerala holiday packages.

Environmental Gems of Kerala

Kerala is known for having great coastal areas covered with coconut palms, paddy fields shimmering with the emerald green color of new shoots, tea and spice plantations blanketing hill ranges as far as your eyes can see, backwaters having rich ecosystems and many other natural gems that make for a great holiday for any traveler. The verdant beauty of the state is richly highlighted through its different eco-tourism destinations, such as the Western Ghats, hill stations, wildlife sanctuaries, valleys, jungles and nature parks. 

Top Eco-Tourism Destinations in Kerala

Among the best eco-tourism destinations in the state are the following: 

  • Thenmala - This destination has immense potential and scope for eco-tourism, with wide fields of greenery that do not only offer a refreshing atmosphere, but also a relaxing experience.
