Athirappilly Waterfalls is located at the entrance of Sholayar ranges, the major host town is Chalakudy, this waterfall is one of the major picnic spots of Kerala. Affording to the onlookers, one of the most bewitching sights, Athirappally Waterfalls is 80 feet high and located exactly in the forest area. Combined with the natural greenery, it infuses freshness into any tired soul. The Athirapally Falls joins the Chalakudy River after plummeting a drop of 80 feet.

A much needed escape from the troubles and stress of life. Let the soothing sounds take you to some of natures most relaxing places - the beautiful waterfalls of Athirampally and Vazhachal. The charm of the Athirampally and Vazhachal nature cannot be described by words, Starting calmly from the high ranges, and crashing through gorges overhung with trees, these waterfall is one of the best places in India to re-capture a real sense of the classical idea of the 'Picturesque' - not just calm and sweet, but something wild and natural.

Chettuva back water cruise

Chettuva in the Thrissur district of Kerala is a backwater destination. Houseboat cruise in the backwater is a favorite choice of tourists to Chettuva. The backwater is dotted with small islets. Dense mangrove thickets on the banks enhance their beauty. Chettuva has a prominent place in the colonial history of Kerala. The Dutch and the British had in turn camped here. The backwater of Chettuva is much greener and calm than famous Alleppey, which is crowded with tourist boats.

Malakkaparai Tea Estate

Malakkappara is an unexplored tourist destination, being a boarder place belonging to Thrissur district of Kerala in India. This is a less developed area in Kerala. It consists of the tea estate owned by Tata Tea. Many endangered and endemic species of flora and fauna are found in the forests of Malakkappara area. For the adventurous, a safari through the deep forest and high ranges (Western Ghats) complemented with lots of hairpin curves takes you to the fascinating sculptured beauty of Malakapara Tea Gardens. Along the route if you are lucky you may end up seeing some good wildlife.

Retreat location

A sliver of a state in India's deep south, Kerala is shaped by its landscape - almost 600km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches, a languid network of backwaters and the spice and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. As relaxing as an Ayurvedic massage, just setting foot on this swathe of soul-quenching green will slow your stride to a blissed-out amble. Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere, as if India had passed through the Looking Glass and become an altogether more laid-back place.
