When it comes to geography, Kerala is a one-of-a-kind place. It is surrounded by the Arabian Sea on its west; the Western Ghats on its east; and 44 interconnecting rivers on its north. After crossing across, you will be greeted by beautiful beaches, verdant backwaters and lush hill stations, as well as an abundance of animals. In addition, it just takes two hours to drive from one to the other, which is an advantage that no other place on Earth can match.

Even though Kerala prides itself on respecting the past, it also strives to provide a model for how cultures may adapt and progress simultaneously. People in the state take great pride in the fact that they have one of India’s lowest newborn mortality rates and one of the greatest life expectancy rates in the country, just to name a few.
