Get to know yourself better!

Among many tourist spots in Kerala, Kottayam is a perfect holiday spot for adventure as well as couple looking for a place to have a romantic outing. You can go cycling, trekking, rock climbing and paragliding and have lots of fun. The place is dotted with hills, tea gardens and lush green meadows. It is on the border of Idukki and Kottayam; nearest airport is Cochin which is 130 km away and nearest railway station is Kottayam which is 60 km away. You will enjoy the road journey with breathtaking hair-pin bends and beautiful valleys on the other side. It is a great experience. Go for a long stroll and enjoy the mist filled air. Be with nature. There are several waterfalls with backdrop of grassy hillocks. The place is enveloped with greenery after the onset of monsoons. It is winter season during October to February, and during this time the temperature falls to below zero degrees. Spices are cultivated in this district, you can go for shopping for the spices.

The vast pine forest, which boasts of many film shootings is another attraction. There are many resorts and good hotels and are affordable rates. Enjoy boating at Vagamon Lake; and for those who want to go cycling or trekking, it is an ideal place to tickle the adventure junkie in you. Besides you can also indulge in paragliding at hills of Kothalamedu, which is 3 km from Vagamon at an altitude of 3000 feet.

After wandering in the never ending grasslands and fresh cool breeze, you will return home rejuvenated.

A place with awesome greenery!

Kottayam is my home town, but I stayed in other cities/states most of the time due to work, studies and all. Now I am back in Kottayam and I totally admire it's beauty. Kottayam has changed a lot and is still developing day by day. Must visit places are Backwaters - Kumarakom if you love a peaceful water life. Kottayam is full of greenery, fields and is a great place to stay. If you are looking out about city life then visit Kanjikuzhy in the town. That is the happening place in Kottayam town where you can go Shopping, Diners and all. Numerous Churches, temples and Mosques are situated in and around the town. Currently working on roads renovation so you might feel bit uncomfortable while driving, but it's a temporary issue. Kottayam is well connected by trains and buses. Nearest Airport is at Cochin which is around 70kms drive. There is a farm in a place called Neendur where you can take your kids to have a great time. They have Rabbits, goats, Emus, Ducks, Fishes to name a few and lot of play area.

Kottayam is well known as the Land of Letters and Latex. Lot of publications are situated here. If you are looking doe authentic Kerala style food then I recommend to visit a local Shaap (small and big Local hotels).
