Kottayam is the birthplace of the publishing industry in Kerala and thus known as the land of letters.  Cradled by the backwaters and the Western Ghats, it is epitomised by its stretches of vast greenery, paddy fields and sprawling rubber plantations.

Kumarakom, Vaikom and Aymanam are the popular Responsible Tourism Villages in Kottayam. RT Mission offers Experiential Tour Packages to explore these destinations. Kottayam is also splendid with hill stations such as Ilaveezhapoonchira, IllikkalKallu etc.
