A travel journalist on a trip across Kerala commented that the northern areas of the state are "well worth exploring".
Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Clover Stroud described a trip that took her from a safari in the Nagarhole National Park to the coffee plantations in northern Kerala and on to a remote region of the Malabar Coast.
She began her trip in Orange County with a boat ride across the Kabini River for a morning safari.
From there, she travelled through the spice and coffee plantations to reach her next destination, where she stayed at a family-run guesthouse.
