Kerala Pictures Gallery

"Explore Indian and Keralite Culture 
through our photos!"

I made this Kerala Pictures Gallery Page, so you can explore Kerala's beauty.

Kerala is one of the most visited states in south India and can offer anything from beaches to wild trekking.

Other than Goa and Kerala, there aren't many swimmable beaches on the east and west coast of India.

So, that's why a lot of backpackers come to Kerala. To relax from the hustle and bustle in the north.

Enjoy the pictures! :-)

Mountains of Kerala

Gorgeous view of Kerala!

Houseboats in the backwaters of Kerala

Taking a houseboat trip is the most popular attraction in Alleppey. 

While we were sitting on a houseboat starting from Alleppey, I managed to take this picture. Houseboats pillage the backwaters of south Kerala and is a tourism magnet (but also a polluter business). Most houseboats use diesel and it's the sum of all the houseboats in the backwaters that is damaging to the environment. 

Alleppey beach

This beautiful beach is Alleppey beach. White sand and dangerous waves - a powerful combination.

Lots of locals stroll on Alleppey beach, in the morning and in the afternoon. You won't see many tourists laying here and sunbathing. The few of them who sunbathe are in a private area, owned by the resorts.

Me at Black Beach in Varkala

Here I am at tiny Black Beach not far from North Cliff in Varkala. The waves were powerful - it almost took me!

Would you love to be here right now? ;-)

Chinese fishing nets in Fort Kochi

Every visitor to Fort Kochi stops by the Chinese fishing nets, located near the market and bus station.

There are small cafés near the nets and you can sit down and observe the sunrise or sunset. You'll definitely get fantastic photos!

Kerala picture of Odayam beach in Varkala in south India

A beach north of the guesthouses in Odayam. It's worth the trip - there were no people there when we visited. Completely secluded and quiet.

Most of the pictures here are from my personal collection, while two of them are picked up from Department of Tourism in Kerala.
