The areas in southern Kerala around Cochin and backwaters have for long been the place most guests visit, but in recent years, there has been something of a buzz about northern Kerala and southern Karnataka, especially for those on a second-time trip to India. You just seem to have a slightly more varied experience, whether it is exploring historical Mysore, staying in a tree-house, spotting tiger in Nagarhole National Park, taking walks in the coffee hills of Coorg and ending on the untouched beaches of northern Kerala. The roads are admittedly bumpier, and you won’t see too many other tourists, and this is obviously the main draw; you truly feel like you are getting off-the-beaten track. Over the past few years, new boutique hotels have opened, ensuring that are a day exploring you return to a comfortable room at night. If you haven’t been to southern Kerala, you can easily combine the two, making for a longer private tour of Kerala.
