Top Offbeat Tourist Attractions in Kerala
The unexplored beauty of Kerala is a visual delight for tourists. Here is a list of the top isolated tourist places in Kerala:
Neeliampathi: Nicknamed the poor man’s Ooty, there is only one way to reach Neeliampathi – through Neemeran Town in Palakkad. The flora enroute is a sight for sore eyes. Elevated 1,585 meters above sea level, the lush green tea gardens surrounded by dense tropical forests make this place truly breathtaking. Since it isn’t a highly frequented tourist destination, couples can find solace in each other’s company.
Chempera Peak: The highest peak in Wayanad, you can reach Chempera only by foot from a small town. Hikers who enjoy trekking and exploring wildlife will find this place a highly interesting option. Located 8 kms South of Kalpetta town, Chempera Peak is surrounded by mountains that are rich in greenery. A popular heart shape place is located on the way to the peak. This is a good place for honeymooners to spend quality time alone.
Silent Valley National Park: This evergreen tropical forest is largely unexplored, situated in the Nilgiri Hills close to Palakkad. Stretching over an area 237 square kilometers, Silent Valley was converted into a National Park in 1980 to preserve the natural beauty and wildlife of the region. This place is home to a number of rare species of monkeys and birds. Those who enjoy traveling alone will find this huge valley extremely satisfying. Photographers with a knack for wildlife photography often visit this place to capture pictures of rare animals and the surrounding landscape.
While planning your Kerala tour, it is a good idea to choose a destination based on your preference and convenience. These off beat destinations offer a fresh and tranquil enclave.
