Read on and find out how to reach Kerala, one of the most visited and popular tourist destinations of the country among honeymooners, families, solo travelers and adventure enthusiasts alike. Everybody is sure to find something or the other of interest in this paradise of Southern India. Frequented by people from all over the world, the state is well connected to most metro cities as well as destinations within the state itself. One can tour Kerala via roads, train, and flights. Though flights are the quickest and most convenient way to get to Kerala, one can still opt for the well-maintained road and train routes if they wish to enjoy picturesque views.

If you're wondering how to go to Kerala from Delhi by flight, the Cochin International Airport (COK) in Kochi is the primary gateway to the state. Reaching Kerala by train is also convenient. For those wondering how to go Kerala by train should know that all major destinations in Kerala are served by broad-gauge trains.

Kerala is the second state in India to have four international airports, namely Trivandrum International Airport, Cochin International Airport, Calicut International Airport and Kannur International Airport (which is yet to become operational). Kollam Airport is a domestic airport in Kerala that offers connectivity among major cities of the state itself. One can easily find themselves an economical flight to Kerala via any of the major airlines, which is why a majority of travelers opt for flights.

Travelers in the southern part of Kerala find it easy to access Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, whereas travelers in the central part of Kerala use the Kochi International Airport. In the northern side of the state, travelers access the Calicut International Airport.

Kerala has more than 200 railway stations, connecting various major cities as well as small towns of the state. Direct trains to various destinations in Kerala can be availed from major Indian cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and Kolkata, among others. Superfast and express trains such as Rajdhani and Duronto connect the larger junctions, whereas mail and passenger trains are also easily available. Kerala's railway network runs from Kasargod, a northwestern point of the state, to the southwestern Thiruvananthapuram.

Kerala is connected to most nearby states via well-maintained roads. Private taxis and buses are easily available in all major and minor parts of the state. Travelers from nearby destinations can also opt to drive their own vehicle to Kerala. Luxury overnight buses, some with built-in bathrooms, are available from destinations such as Alleppey, Kannur, Ernakulam, Kottayam, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Palakkad, Wayanad and Thiruvananthapuram for various other cities across the state.

If you're in for a road trip to Kerala, you're sure to find abundant heart-warming vistas on your way. The roads are bordered by tea and banana plantations, small lakes and lush vegetation. You could even come across various waterfalls. The picturesque villages lining the roads offer a remarkable insight into the local way of life. And the best part about a road trip to Kerala is that you can stop for an impromptu photo session with the lush greenery in the backdrop.
