    Default Kerala experts, need your help in planning a photography trip!

    Hi Guys,

    A very senior member from the core Team of xBhp, who also happens to be a renowned photographer, will be visiting Kerala for 9-10 days.

    This is going to be a purely photography oriented trip and his mode of transport will be cars only.

    Now, could you guys please suggest few beautiful, non-touristy, off-the-beaten-track kind of places in Kerala.

    He wants to see and capture the heart of Kerala, away from the crowded places. This could be backwaters, tea estates, and beaches; basically the places which would represent the true picture of Kerala.

    So, would request all of you to pour in with your suggestions.

    Talking of Backwaters, never miss Kuttanad area. Kumarakam lake, Kovalam beach, Munnar, Waynad, and of course the tvm pbk are extreme places for photography....

    I don't stay in KL...so not sure, if I'm qualified to post
    1. Theni-Munnar-Top Station - Specially if you are driving with a lot of mist around
    1a. Also Udumalaipet to Munnar
    2. Get to some offroading (only by Jeep) to Nelliyampathy; all the way from Chalakudy to Pollachi; there're some excellent to WOW stretches.
    3. Athirapally waterfalls
    4. Wayanad
    5. Thodupuzha-Idukki stretch

    Here's another tip for you SunilG - Shooting locations, Kerala Tourism, India - This should give you more than sufficient place.

    Note - how the heck I forget Vagamon!!! Do not miss this place; its about 25 Kms from Pala & has awesome scenic.

    all those pics i got from facebook search...I dint click any

    I wish i can click a few like that, learning the art of photography slowly...

    Now its raining heavily in Kerala, even at the time of ONAM...
    So for photography trip, better have a look at the weather report too..
