Geography Of Kerala

Leave your footprints all over the world! Know your destination through geography.

The state of Kerala is situated on the south-west edge of India, flanked by the Western Ghats on the eastern side and the Arabian Sea on the western side. The state has a long coastline and almost the entire area is shaded from the tropical sun by coconut trees. There are also very many paddy fields that dot the landscape. The state is divided into three geographical terrains – the highlands, the midlands and the coastline. The highlands slope from the Western Ghats onto the midlands, giving rise to hills and valleys. The weather makes it conducive to grow tea and coffee in the highlands and lush green forests covers the valley. Even rubber and spices are grown abundantly in Kerala. The picturesque and tranquil coastline features backwaters, interconnected with canals and rivers. Naturally, the main means of transportation here is by water. Kerala has 14 districts and the capital being Trivandrum. It shares the border with Tamil Nadu and Karnataka lies to its north.
