Varkala - Backpacking Destination in Kerala
Varkala, the only cliff by the beach in Kerala, is a fantastic backpacking destination for its laid-back and serene vibe. I had to cancel a trek of mine twice to handle some issues at work and these aren't the best times of my life. The frustration started building up and I had to make a quick escape to nature. Kerala seemed to be a good choice as the monsoon was ending and this is when the "God's own country" shines in the best of colors.
It's a popular surfing destination of India. Post-monsoon is the best season for the expert surfers. The high-tide surfing is a treat to the eyes.
The vibrant promenade stretches for 1.5 kms on the north cliff. Themed cafes, libraries, art galleries, ayurvedic massage and treatment centers, yoga centers, flea shopping, fill up this street overlooking the blue Arabian sea.
The sunset by the cliff is apt for those soul searching moments for which I travel solo.
A few kms ride from the cliff got me to this beautiful road where I got the most spectacular view of Kappil beach on one side and the backwaters on the other.
Further few kms ride got me to the local fisherman villages by the beautiful Edava lake.

A High-Altitude Trekker & PADI certified SCUBA Diver, I love exploring the heights and depths of the planet with my regular doses of mountains and oceans.
Discovering myself & life through nature, adventures, travels, sports and dance has been an addiction since my existence!
Quite fond of the natural & cultural diversity of India, I've travelled extensively in my own country before exploring international destinations.
I had left my 9+ yrs of career in Software Industry in a quest to make a living out of my passions. I packed my basics in my car (gave away the rest) and lived in different parts of Himachal Pradesh for 16 months. This invaluable time taught me to experience life from a broader perspective.
I'm currently living in Mumbai to work with an Adventure Travel company as a product manager for Scuba Diving. I continue living a minimalistic life.
