India's Great Divide is the Vindhya Mountains which run from east to west, separating the fertile river valley of the Ganges from the Deccan Plateau which occupies much of peninsular India. It also separates the north from the south. Geographically, Southern India traditionally includes the entire Indian Peninsula south of the Satpura and Vindhya ranges and Narmada River, encompassing the Deccan plateau, the Eastern and Western Ghats, and the coasts between the Ghats and the sea. On these coastal plains lie the best beaches in India. On the rimming mountains of the Eastern and Western Ghats are the tea, coffee & spice lands. Beyond these mountains lie great old cities supported by rich farm lands & a culture that has its roots in the almost-historical Kumari Continent from where, civilization is claimed to have spread across the world.
South India is a land of temples, a land of the devout, where, every now and then you will be greeted by new wonders - the profusion of orange flowers, the shade of the banyan tree, and the soft beat of distant drums as yet another festival starts. Whether you want to escape into the tranquil setting of the backwaters or experience an exhilarating trek into the mountains, the southern part of India is sure to overwhelm you with its grandeur and pristine beauty. In spite of a seeming racial, cultural and linguistic homogeneity among the major southern states, each state is a fascinating tourist destination on its own - offering unique scenery, festivals, architecture and subtle cultural variations. Experience, just once, the magic of South India - and you will keep coming back for more - and more.
The tropical climate in the south is less harsh than that of the northern states. But, the most pleasant time to visit most places is during the cooler period: November to around mid-February.
