India is a country that offers varied languages, traditions, and a diverse topography that changes with each mile you cover. India can be divided into zones – North, South and Central – all three abounding in spellbinding sights and nature’s magnificence. While in the North you can breathe in the crisp mountain air, the Central part is extremely picturesque, draped in rare and beautiful flora and fauna. South India, on the other hand, is a green paradise surrounded by the ocean. The lifestyle of the locals here is mainly inspired by the sea – right from the delicious cuisine to the festivals. Below are the coastal towns that you can backpack through for a pure and rustic experience of South India.
