Malayalis refer to their home state as “Ende Naadu”. The rest of the world know Kerala as God’s own country. Nature’s abundance in Kerala reflects in the richness of its traditional lifestyle. The food habits, festivals, social activities and even the basic livelihood activities are a joy to experience. This is what we do in our Kerala holiday. Live like the Malayalis so you will know Kerala well enough to refer to it as Ende Naadu.
