Located in the southern part of Kerala, the beach of Varkala, overhung by palm trees, was the starting point of our tour in South-west India. In trains as in buses, we headed north, going through the towns of Kochi, Kottayam and Alleppey, all three cities located on the fringe of the famous Backwaters. Leaving the coast and the torrid heat which prevails there, we finally gain altitude towards the Western Ghats and the village of Munnar, famous for its tea plantations which makes it an important place of the world tea trade.
