For many travellers, Kerala is South India's most serenely beautiful state. This slender coastal strip is defined by its layered landscape: almost 600km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a languid network of glistening backwaters; and the spice- and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats, dotted with fiercely protected wildlife reserves and cool hill stations such as Munnar.

A tour though colourful Kerala provides abundant photography opportunities; whether you are exploring the villages along the tropical backwaters, meandering through exotic bazaars and spice markets, witnessing majesty of the famous Kathakali dance, or soaking up the history of Jew Town and 15th Century Chinese fishing net, you will discover eye-catching surprises on every turn.

Opportunities for learning portrait photography are also readily available throughout a tour of Kerala as you meet and interact with the welcoming residents of this delightful state.  

It's a spell-binding experience to soak up the charm and history of captivating Kerala, but why not explore Kerala on a photography tour with a professional photographer? On a private photography & cultural tour of Kerala, Francisco will instruct and mentor you to capture the true beauty of this alluring destination.
