Life along the River Nila
Explore the communities that live along the River Nila, the second-longest in Kerala, in an appreciation of local culture and traditions that converge near the source of life, water! Appreciate traditions, music, food and life skills, and make time to reflect on all that you experienced in a relaxed extension at a beach.
This southwestern coastal state is full of natural beauty, exotic beaches, fresh air and charming locals. Don’t be surprised if you hear it being referred to as “‘the land of greenery and natural beauty” as it’s exactly that. Unlike some regions in the north, this state is peaceful and has less of a tourist influx. It’s the ultimate Indian destination for outdoor lovers.
The Keralan way of life is particularly unique having its own culture and traditions. Alongside the enchanting scenery, Kerala’s heritage is rich and is commonly renowned for its arts, dances, music, jewellery making, metal carvings, wood carvings, handicrafts and farming.
On this journey, travel at a slow and steady pace whilst interacting with charming locals from different communities. Gain a deeper insight first hand to the Keralan way of life and learn from local artisans who make traditional basket weavings and instruments. Listen to the wonderful percussion-based music and witness the talented musicians. As well as leaving your mark and giving back to the environment planting saplings in a travellers project area.
