Think Turquoise blue waters and idyllic lagoons skirted by an endless array of coconut trees. Does that sound like Kerala to you? Add a bunch of beautiful coral islands to it. No, not Goa either. We are talking about Lakshadweep, India’s least visited beach holiday destination that is the most perfect place for the beach bum. An archipelago of 36 islands and flanked by 3 amazing reefs that are teeming with colorful aquatic life, Lakshadweep is a magical place waiting to be discovered. This cluster of 400 islands has only 10 islands that are inhabited by people. The rest are like mysterious ghost islands floating in the sea, untouched by civilization. A Lakshadweep holiday promises to be filled with adventure, sun, surf, sand, sea-food and a glimpse into a hidden part of India that still boasts of an indigenous tribal race that leads a solitary life. Lakshadweep is 400 kms away from Kerala and we have the best Lakshadweep packages that give you an unparalleled experience in these pristine islands.
Our packages can also be clubbed with your Kerala holiday and will give you the best of both worlds. God’s own country with the cluster of thousand islands.

The tribals of Lakshadweep
Most people are unaware that Lakshadweep is also home to a rare civilization who have lived a nomadic life that has largely been confined to these islands until civilization came along and technology made an appearance. Lakshadweep is the only place where you can meet, interact and get a rare glimpse into their lives. Some of their cultural and ritual practices may seem strange. Others a tad humorous. For example, here matrimony results in the man taking on the wife’s surname for a change and even moving to her house to live his life. You can also get to learn firsthand from these people about coconut harvesting and age old fishing techniques that are still practiced. Their lives are also rich in culture, color and folk art forms, some of which are carried on even today. The dance forms like Kolkali, Daffumuttu, Attom and Ulakkamuttu are worth watching and will awe you with its rustic splendor. We can arrange the best Lakshadweep tour packages for you and your family that includes all of the above mentioned activities and more.
