The visit of an international travel group of 31 tourists to Kerala in 16 caravans has given an attestation to Kerala’s successful caravan tourism policy, the Tourism Minister Mr P. A. Mohamed Riyas has said. The group is on a 50,000-km ‘automobile expedition’ from Istanbul in Turkey to Darwin, Australia. It includes 16 from Switzerland, 14 from Germany, and one from Russia. They started their road trip in July 2022 and are expected to travel through 17 countries in 365 days.
Interacting with the tourists, Mr Riyas expressed gratitude to them for including Kerala in their travel itinerary. While in Kerala, the group cruised through the backwaters of Alappuzha, explored Kumily and took a boat safari in Thekkady before leaving for Kanyakumari.
After covering places in India, they will head to Nepal via Kolkata. Lauding Kerala’s efforts to promote caravan tourism, the travellers expressed happiness about the hospitality of Malayalis and appreciated Kerala’s infrastructure and transport facilities.
