    Cochin

     

    Upon arrival, you will be met & transferred by private vehicle to the hotel. The hotel greets you in a traditional 'varvelpu', or welcome. The garland, the Aarti and the proffered coconut water are gestures you'll become familiar with as you journey through this state. Cochin is an evocative harbor town stretched across islands and peninsulas on the Malabar Coast. Founded by Vasco da Gama in 1502 it was once a centre of the spice trade and now the principal port on the Malabar Coast. A cosmopolitan European influence has been left by the various waves of British, Portuguese, Dutch and Jewish settlers who made this colourful city their home.
    Today in the evening enjoy a Kathakali dance performance.

    Cochin

     

    Explore the diverse sights of Fort Kochi in a guided walking tour . Walk through the sinewy streets of the town towards the beach, you will simply wonder about the eternal sonance of the ebullient sea, always within your earshot but perpetually imperceptible to the eye.
    You can see stamps of silver sands, carelessly scattered on the grounds, ratifying a sea nearby, but where? And now when you are so close to the parapet, a visit to the first European fort built on Indian soil is a fine idea, isn't it? Perched regally on petrified time, Fort Kochi is not just a quaint township or a traveler’s delight.
    It is a perfect poetry of folklore handed down the ages, a melting pot of culture that has emerged from three invasions, and a lifestyle that prides itself on its natural ardour to savour life, much the same way you would do about your holiday vacation in Kerala. The Portuguese made it in 1530, the Dutch played with it from 1663 and ultimately the British East India Company wrested the grand creation away in 1795. Housing the first European township and anchored on one of the finest natural harbours of the State, Fort Kochi over the chapters of history played the fascinating roles of a major military base, shipbuilding centre, a cultural hub, and a centre for Christianity, all in one. Also enjoy a sunset cruise around the harbour to see the Dutch built Bolghatty Palace and the Chinese fishing nets. Later, shop in the local market of Fort Kochi.

    Today, in the evening we take you to an escorted dinner with local gay community in Cochin. Meet, Interact and make friends with them followed by an escorted tour of a gay friendly Bar / Night Club or an invitation to an exclusive gay party.

    Early morning, visit the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, situated on the banks of the Periyar Lake.

Riding an elephant takes you back to the royal era, when only the Kings use to ride on these majestic creatures.
    Later, drive to Kumily on the outskirts of Periyar to visit a spice farm. Kumily is known for its gorgeous, sprawling spice and tea plantations. Get to see first-hand, how the spices and teas are produced, from the plantation to the factory. Walk through an avenue of cardamom plants – these are tree like in height and the small pods grow from the bottom of the plant is almost complete shade.
