1. A ‘date’ with the Wild!
Do you get excited when you listen to the roars of Tigers or catch a glimpse of migratory birds? Fix a meeting with the wild flora & fauna of South India;-and witness the true quintessence of Wildness and enthusiastically break the monotony of the usual City Life! Set out on an intrepid safari and catch the wondrous vistas of Sambars grazing in Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Sloth bears roaming in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary, Porcupines hiding in their dens in Periyar Wildlife sanctuary, Jungle Fowls resting in their nests in Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, and Elephants parading in different Wildlife destinations of South India.
2. Rendezvous with Sea & Sand!
An engaging stopover amidst golden sand-, in a mobile shelter that will remind you of the typical ‘Carnival Nights’, mentioned in the books. Explore the beach thoroughly with a boat ride and enjoy some jovial folk performances of the locals in the evening. Experience the grandeur of South India by choosing to stay in any interesting hotel of the Tamil Nadu or Karnataka. Knock down the turbulence of the chaotic urban life with a charming moonlight tryst on a boat, in the middle of tender waters of Emerald Lake, Ooty; undoubtedly one of the best things to do in Ooty.
3. An odyssey to the Hills!
Revitalize yourself by sipping a hot cup of tea while gazing at the stillness of the soaring highlands or by performing Yoga asanas in Coorg, Ooty or Munnar. Indulge in a book or start writing a new blog while reclining in the snug room of Vedanta Wake Up! Munnar – Devikulam. Amplify the vacation with activities like Trekking in Thandiyendamol, Rock Climbing in Honnamana Kere, White-water rafting at Dubare or playing volleyball/cricket in the vast gardens.
4. A pious pilgrimage to significant spots of South India!
Enlighten yourself with a divine peregrination to popular hallowed places of India. Gain Inner peace & tranquillity with a visit to The Namdroling Monastery, one of the best places to visit in Coorg. A trip to the Thrissilery Shiva Temple Wayanad will also be quite pleasing & sanctifying. There are 100s of beautiful and peaceful places in South India to attract the pilgrim lovers. Some of them are Cheengeri Bhagavati Temple, Shree Narasimhamurthi Temple, Dharmanath Jain Temple & Jewish Synagogue etc. Also, some artistically built churches like Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica Church & Vasco Da Gama Church also exert a pull on the tourists.
These are just few reasons to go on a break; one of the best reasons to go on a vacation is to simply do nothing, well, really. Thing about it, sprawling on the bed whole day long, ordering your food on the call, sounds quite exciting!
Also, making new friends while roaming is a fun way to expand your circle. We meet all sorts of people while travelling and who knows, you might get your soul mate while jaunting (if you haven’t found one yet).
A Walk in the tea-garden, safari in the woods or simply a dance on the beach, just do anything that you wish to, and have a blast in the South.
