Dear all,

This is my first thread in this forum. I had previously enjoyed the wealth of information in this forum, so I am going to ask my first question here.
I am traveling to south India, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, for 2-3 weeks in the late January/early February next year. I am more interested in meeting local people, specially in the villages and tribes. Here is my list of places I want to visit:

- Fishing villages
- Tea harvesting
- Kerala's martial arts
- Tribes in Nilgiris
- Dancers in the temples
- Karnathakali dancers

I know, it's a lot and I may not be able to see them all, but any information on the places/times/possibilities will be highly appreciated. Any other recommendation on the highlights of southern India is also highly welcomed.


PS. Please visit my gallery of portrait I've made in my previous trip here:

Hello Alireza,

Check this for Kerala. I had been there during 2007 and accidentally discovered this festival.

this could help you plan better.
