The Amazing Things That We Did Which Made Our Trip An Unforgettable Experience
Here are some of the best experiences that we had during our most unforgettable trip to Kerala which included exploring the wildlife parks, witnessing the backwaters and many more.
1. A Visit To Blossom Park
We had never seen such a wide variety of flowers together making a visit to Blossom Park an incredible experience in itself. The lush greenery and huge trees added to the beauty making it even more captivating. We visited other places such as Mattupetty Lake and Dam and rode an elephant for the first time in our lives on our Kerala tour for 5 days and it was fascinating to say the least.
2. Taking The Off-Road Jeep Safari
A trek to an ideal, off-beat, lesser known place known as Gavi Forest is all that we needed to be lost in the wilderness. It was a part of our 5 day trip to Kerala. The ride was fun-filled and adventurous. At the forest we came across a wide variety of wildlife which was genuinely a treat to watch. We had a time of our life while we were on this Safari for the thrill it offered. We say visiting Thekkady and undertaking the Off-Road Jeep Safari is a must. Our Kerala 5 days itinerary was a lot of fun and we will always cherish the moments.

3. A Day At The Backwaters (Shikara Boat Ride)
When we spent time during our Kerala Trip Plan for 5 days amidst backwaters surrounded by Mango and Coconut trees, we wanted the trip to be eternal. The backwaters offered us a respite from everything and we felt that the best way to soak in the purity and the unbound beauty of Kerala is by staying in one of the luxurious houseboats. The gorgeous views of flora and fauna and the comfort and luxury it offered was immense and made our experience worthwhile.
