1) Most awaited activity …Fishing!

A trip to Kerala and no fishing is something having Pizza without cheese! With an extensive wealth of water bodies, it comes as no surprise that fishing is a must-do in Kerala. Whetherit is the vast Arabian Sea or the fascinating backwaters, the many lakes or canals, or even paddy fields in the month of the monsoon – there is no shortage of choices in Kerala.
Go fishing using traditional methods like Choonda (fish hooks) or bamboo traps. Or you can also enjoy to a nearby beach in the evening and watch fishermen take to the seas with theirfishing nets.



2) Breathtaking Boat Race.

Champakulam Moolam Boat Race is the oldest and most popular boat races in Kerala. The boat race is held on Pampa River at Champakulam near Alappuzha on Moolam. The Champakulam Boat Race is the first race during the monsoon season and has a tradition of centuries. This was traditionally held to mark the day when the idol of Lord Krishna was brought by boat and installed at Sri Krishna Temple, Ambalapuzha.The festivities include spectacular water floats, decorated boats, vanchipattu – the song of the oarsmen and the popular Chundan Vallam race. Before the boat race begins, the lake is adorned by colourful boats that are dressed in pretty parasols containing groups of performing artists display their skills in honour of Lord Krishna. The race is held in various stages for various categories of boats. The banks of the Pampa River get flooded by people from far and near, cheering the oarsmen. These snake boats driven by hundreds of oarsmen tearing through the serene waters and the festive environment makes the boat race a grand visual spectacle.



3) know-howthe Thrissur Pooram, Thrissur

Religious ceremonies and festivals are at the heart of Indian culture. The ancient city of Thrissur surrounds the Vadakkumnathan Temple (dedicated to Lord Shiva) which is situated right in the centre of the city on a hillock. It is believed that the 6th incarnation of Lord VishnuLord Parasurama (devotee of Lord Shiva), created the city. It’s no wonder then that this city is called the cultural capital of Kerala.
The city of Thrissur puts its best foot forward during this festival. The festival is essentially a kind of contest between two rival groups. Each group is allowed to bring 15 elephants and a range of fireworks to the festival.
The groups scan the whole of Southern India to secure the best elephants for the celebrations. The elephants are then decorated with colorful parasols and head gear. On the day of the festival, the thundering of percussion instruments fills the air. The finale is a grand display in which elephants stand in one line, leaving the crowds spellbound. Behind them, fireworks dazzle the night sky as the two groups try to outdo each other.
This festival wins my vote hands down for being the most electrifying celebration of a regional festival.



4) Experience a Day in a Houseboat

One of the most preferred ways to get close to the backwater life in Kerala is the houseboat stay. House boating can be the most relaxing experience for any size, age or type of people .Alleppey houseboats offer facilities of luxury hotels which attract the tourists in large number. The impressive interiors and décor of these houseboats steal hearts.Imagine being adjourned in time, in the middle of nowhere with only mother nature and the celestial stars to give you company. It takes great skill and diligence to construct these giant house boats by tying huge planks of jack together. peculiarly not a single nail is used for constructing this houseboat. There used to be an clan of artisians who were involved in house boat erection.



5) Watch Female Priests Worship the Snake God

The history of Mannarasala Temple dates as far back as the creation of Kerala itself. According to a legend, Parashuram had to appease the Snake God, Nagaraja in order to make the land of Kerala fit for human habitation by desalinating the land with the help of snake poison. And hence, at Mannarasala a temple was dedicated to Nagaraja. Set in a forest glade at Haripad, the temple is a major pilgrimage site and has about 30,000 images of Snake-Gods.
The unique thing about this place is that the temple is headed by a priestess, who is the central figure of the area. People usually come to her seeking comfort and blessings. The best time to visit the temple is during the main festival, Mannarasala Ayilyam (September-October) when a procession of serpent idols are taken out in all pomp and glory.



6) Walk on the Streets of Fort Cochin

This water-bound piece of exotic land is well known for its art galleries, colonial architecture and the Chinese fishing nets. But what you’ll notice the moment you set foot on Fort Cochin is the quaintness of the village. To just stay here, walking its streets aimlessly, reposing on the seashore, doing absolutely nothing will quite suffice your senses because the place is charming, to say the least.
At night, the place takes on a whole new aura – roaming its streets is almost like wandering in a dream with a wish to never wake up. The cosy cafes, modern galleries, spice markets, the Portuguese-Dutch-British influences and the myriad cultures that you’ll encounter in the streets will captivate you to stay here forever.



7) Get Rejuvenated in an Ayurveda Center

Ayurveda, meaning the ‘Science (or wisdom) of Life’ in Sanskrit, is a 5,000 year old medicine system with its routes in Indian Vedic culture, and can be considered as an Alternative Medicine system. Ayurveda is the less well known but inseparable sister of Yoga; Ayurveda being the science behind the practice of Yoga. If you are obese, or if you have diabetes, hair problems, stress or even if you want to relax in the best way possible, then drop in one of the centers. It’s a deadly package of serene beauty and rejuvenation.



8) Explore the Local Gastronomy

Almost all Mallu dishes are prepared in coconut and various spices giving a sharp pungency in the flavour that is further heightened with a hint of tamarind. The use of coconut gives richness to the dishes and also absorbs the tongue teasing hot flavours.
Being a coastal state, sea food is also found in abundance, which is cooked in various different styles.
If you thought of just idlis and dosas the moment you read local gastronomy, then you really thought small. Kerala is more than just idlis and dosas. If you care to dig deep enough, you’ll find a treasure trove of food loaded with subtle flavours, lovely colours and simple yet diverse tastes.



9) Explore the Spice Markets, Kochi

The spices of Kerala date back to thousands of years in the history of the state. In the ancient times, Kerala rose to fame all around the world solely on the basis of the riches brought into the state, because of its monopoly over spices.Spices are used in the production of certain indigenous medicines, preservatives, perfumes and most importantly in everyday cooking. Spices don’t simply add more pungent flavor and fragrance to our daily nourishment – they also help digestion, protect from bacteria and prevent many diseases. Spices are also exquisite merchandise that enjoys great value internationally.Walk into one of the markets, feel the smell of spices seeping into your pores and take a whole lot of them back home and experiment with your food. These little hydrogen bombs will burst into your mouth with a truckload of flavours.



10) Watch a Cultural Program

Kerala has a treasure trove of a vibrant culture which is evident in its dance, music, cinema and theatre. To miss savouring is to lose a chance of understanding the essence of God’s own country. Watch a Kathakali performance, a 400-year old dance drama which uses only gestures, facial expressions and music to communicate the complex emotions of the characters; Mohiniyattam, a folk dance of Kerala which uses sensual movements to enchant its audiences; Thiruvathirakali, performed by women which celebrate the female energy and feminine grace.
These are but a few examples. You’ll find a lot of cultural centres in major cities of Kerala where you can spend a delightful evening – in Kochi; there is Cochin Cultural Center and Kerala Kathakali Centre. You can also visit nearby temples to know about any upcoming cultural event.
If you want to experience Kerala and the goodness it has to offer, then you must embark on a trip to Kerala right away and get ready to explore!
