Kanyakumari is full of temples and other religious sites but if you are thinking that its only for middle-aged or old people or some young, who recites gayatri mantra or murmurs Hanuman chalisa every morning on their way to work, you might want to reframe your thought. The following activities will surely tempt everyone to visit the place.

  • Trekking

    This is for those who love to explore nature and its never-ending beauties. With the Western Ghats on its side, which is abundant in various floras and faunas, Kanyakumari is an exotic spot for the perfect nature’s trail. Among the various places for trekking, Marunthuvazh Malai, on the Kanyakumari-Nagercoil highway, is known for the beautiful panoramic view of the green coconut trees below. If you want to continue your praying spree here also, a Lord Hanuman temple is surprisingly located on the top. Don’t forget to have a close look at any unusual herbs on the way to the top, as the hill is believed to be a fragment of the hill Lord Hanuman carried to Lanka. So, if the myth is true, it might be the medicinal sanjivani. Take water bottles, as they are no shops on the way, but while coming back, try coconut water, sold at the foothills. It will surely taste like nectar after a sweaty trek.

  • Amusement Park

    Your kids will just love it! You will love it too once the kid in you takes over and you will splash in the pool and scream your brains out in the roller-coaster ride. Let your heart decide it all in this park and no matter what your age is, just go for the seat in the Teacup or spiral down the Milky Way and land with on the blue crystal water. Don’t miss out the famous Wax Museum in the park. With life-like statues of various personalities from around the world, be ready to pinch yourself and see if it is for real or not. Shahrukh Khan, Jackie Chan and Michael Jackson share the same roof in this museum. Good enough reason to visit!

  • Surfing

    A comparatively new sports in India, but nevertheless, popular, surfing is in itself an experience of a world of adventure and excitement that is hard to die, once you start enjoying it. An open ended sea, the winds are strong and the waves appropriate for an exciting date with the water. If you are lucky, try to ride the tube and take back an ocean of memories to the land.  Do, take your own surfing board as the rented ones might all be taken. Yes, it is becoming that popular.

Shopping, sightseeing will always be there no matter where you go for a vacation but these activities will open up a trail, a ride or a wave for you, that will be on top of your museum of Kanyakumari memories. It will always stay fresh and linger on like a first love affair.
