Kerala is slightly smaller than Switzerland with a cluster of islands and peninsulas where picturesque lagoons and canals take the place of main roads.

The state is divided into three parallel strips:
  • the coastal area with lush vegetation almost to the water's edge,
  • the middle strip of rubber, tea and spice plantations and
  • a hilly region with tropical forests sheltered by the western Ghats.
For many centuries, these mountains acted as an impassable barrier guarding the coastal state. The sea, however, provided an excellent gateway. Overnight in Cochin.
