Things to do - Nainital general

Located at a distance of 76 km. from the sea shores of Kozhikode, this verdant hill station is full of plantations, forests and wildlife.

Guruvayur

Things to do - CORBETT general

Even if you are remotely acquainted with Hindu culture, religion or mythology, the name "Guruvayur" should strike a familiar chord with you. A thriving township in Trichur district of Kerala state in the South of India, its scenic beauty and serenity are breath taking. However, today Guruvayur is synonymous with the Sree Krishna or Guruvayurappan Temple located there so that when anybody says he is going to Guruvayur, it is understood that it may be to this famous temple. An insight into the temple and its presiding deity would be pertinent here for your benefit. Adorned with the holy tulasi (Basil) garland, and pearl necklace the Lord here appears in all radiance - a mere glimpse, and your search for spirituality has found its meaning.

Munnar

Munnar is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. 1,600 m above sea level, this hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India. Sprawling tea plantations, picture-book towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji. This flower which bathes the hills in blue once in every twelve years, will bloom next in 2018.

Things to do - MUSSOORIE general

Alleppey has a wonderful past. Though the present town owes its existence to the sagacious Diwan Raja Kesavadas in the second half of 18th century, district of Alappuzha figures in classical Literature.The best thing about Alappuzha and Kerala in general is the weather.
