Photography: The Beauty of Kerala in 50 Stunning Images

Kerala has many faces and names. Some call it as the ‘Land of Coconuts’… and some “Land of Spices” while some call it ‘Land of Elephants’! It is indeed incredible with its unique geographic features, rich cultural tradition and history…

But then nothing is perfect. Kerala has its own share of negatives and drawbacks. That’s part of the parcel!

In this post we are going to feel and expereince the real Kerala through these awesome travel photos.

    I was wandering to know about Munnar and got your blog link which gives a wide view of the area in details; looks like you guys have put in lot of efforts to gather details and very professionally presented.(I really like the disclaimer that you have given about the Photo’s captured-“Munnar Travel Guide”; very rightly portrays your intentions that the person who captured deserves all the respect).
    The intricate details and awesome pictures presented makes us to rush and plan the journey…….and cherish the mesmerising moments in God’s Own Country….!
