The State is divided into three regions - the coastal lowlands, the fertile midlands and the misty highlands. The lowlands of Kerala are networked by endless backwaters and the deltas of forty-four rivers. The midlands are rich with cashew, coconut, arecanut, tapioca, banana, rice, ginger, pepper, sugarcane and vegetable plantations. The forested high lands abound in tea, coffee, rubber and spice plantations and wildlife reserves.Tourism, Information Technology and Ship Building are some of the major industries in Kerala
