Local cultural tours and experiences, including wildlife, dance, ayurvedic/natural medicine.
How long it takes...
Spend at least three days here to get a feel for the area and local culture, including the wonderful home-cooked meals.
Who it's appropriate for...
Those interested in homestays, culture, Hinduism, Ayurveda, and Kerala history. Suitable for families, as well. Would also be good for long term stays if you are looking for a peaceful rural setting near an Ayurvedic center.
You will be treated like one of the family, and it will be the perfect experience for those looking for an "off the beaten trail" experience. The family really goes out of their way to care for you.
Details of costs...
Very reasonable rates for the homestay. Other costs depend on the activities you decide to do.
