Top 10 honeymoon destinations in Kerala are:

  1. Munnar
To provide details of Munnar

Munnar, Idukki is easily spotted on the world tourism map. The entire town of Munnar is a sight to behold. With mesmerizing hills draped with mystical fog, evergreen tea and coffee plantations and enchanting waterfalls, the picturesque image of the laborers working on these plantations standing precariously on the hills, Munnar is simply photogenic from all angles

2. Vagamon

Vagamon is a destination which has not been explored by many though the scenic beauty, climate and  attitude of people favors tourist attraction. A non polluted – No garbage destination is what we can call Vagamon in short. Vagamon lies 100 km from Cochin towards East – South direction (almost to the direction of Thekkady) which can be considered as a destination for a day tour or for a 1 or 2 night stay tour from Cochin.

3. Wayanad

The mist-capped hills and vast expanse of foggy, rocky mountains blend together to form the scenic natural beauty of Wayanad. Wayanad is exceptionally beautiful during the monsoon and many people actually make a trip just to see the green meadows, the white water springs, the luscious forest and peaceful lakes all awash in rainy splendor. These natural endowments are what make Wayanad look as stunning as a bride on her wedding day.

4. Cochin

Cochin has lot of sightseeing places including Marine drive, Chinese fishing nets, Fort Cochin where you can visit Dutch palace, Jew Synagogue etc.

5. Kuttanad

Kuttanadu is called the rice-bowl of Kerala. It is the area of lowest altitude in Kerala. As a consequence, farming here is carried on below sea level!

6. Kovalam

Kovalam is a beach town by the Arabian Sea in Thiruvananthapuram metropolitan area in Kerala, India, located around 18 km south of the city center.

7. Thekkady

 Thekkady is also called Periyar and sometimes known as Kumily too. Kumily is the place where we normally stay and Thekkady is where Wildlife Sanctuary is located; both are just 2 -3 km apart.

Thekkady is situated 170 kms from Cochin and it takes approximately 5 hours to reach there. For most of the package trips, we go to Thekkady after Munnar which is 110km away or from Alleppey which is about 140km away. The route is a combination of hills as well as normal roads.

8. Kuttikkanam

Kuttikanam is a dream paradise for tourists who love to soak themselves in the cool climate of December. It stands at a height of 3500 feet above sea level and is covered with verdant tea and cardamom plantations. The presence of valleys, streams, pine forests and rich flora and fauna adds to its alluring charm.

Kuttikkanam was once ruled by the British and the kings of Travancore. It used to be the favourite summer destination of Travancore Rajas. There are many places here where you can go for sight-seeing.

9. Athirappally

 Athirapally Falls is a marvellous cascade of frothy waters that makes its way from the Anamudi mountains of the Western Ghats. This 80 ft high and 330 ft wide marvel is the largest waterfall in Kerala and is often referred to as the “Niagara Falls of India”.

10. Meesapulimala

This is a place for adventurous couple who wants to celebrate life.

It is at a peak in the high ranges of Idukki and an ideal place to start your hiking or trekking trails in Kerala. The mountain forest ecosystem is an attractive feature of Meesapulimala.
