This unique experience takes us through 3 interesting destinations in Kerala: Athirapally, on the banks of Chalakudy river, Puthenvelikkara, known for the confluence of Chalakudy and Periyar rivers and Fort Kochi, the island closer to the estuary where the Periyar river joins the Arabian sea. Rivers that nurtured cultural richness and biodiversity, rivers and tides that created lands through its ebb and flow. You will get an insight into the lives of forest people and their stewardship that preserves the nature around us. The trip takes you through the colonial period and contemporary challenges on conservation. You will understand about people’s movements that defined the character of the society in Kerala, meet innovators who are sustaining the changes.
