Ready to be mesmerised by Kerala. Meaning ‘land of coconuts’, & named  Gods Own Country Kerala is almost entirely shaded by a palm canopy. Home to elephants, tea plantations, a world-class cuisine and many adventure travel opportunities, India’s tropical south is the perfect setting for a life-changing adventure. This part of India is also referred to as the Venice of India due to its tranquil backwaters and waterways.

Soak up the laid back atmosphere as you explore this idyllic coastal state during The days of cycling tour. Beginning and ending in Cochin, set amid a Group of islands and narrow peninsulas, the route passes through cardamom plantations, paddy fields and dramatic mountain scenery. So when all the hard work is done, why not take a tour of this picturesque corner of the world?

The sun bleached seashore  Running blue waves, green coconut groves and lagoons are all part of the essence of Kochi, our starting point for the challenge Tour. As we move westwards on our bicycles we see more of the interior with its lush land of rivers flowing through hills and paddy fields and emptying themselves into the backwaters. And finally we arrive at the once far off dark blue mountains, with their hill stations and cooler temperatures.
