Backwaters

No travel to Kerala is ever complete without a Backwater Cruise on a houseboat. The House boats are originally Kettuvallams, which we used in yesteryears to commute and transport both people and goods in a state connected much by waterways than roadways. The 900 km stretched waterways of Kerala is a labyrinth of waterways that connects many towns. The Backwaters of Alleppey is called as the Venice of the East. But must say that Kerala is more Greener and calm than Venice. Kollam and Kumarakom are other backwater destinations of Kerala. The backwaters of Allepey are the main venue of ‘Nehru Trophy Boat race’, which is the world’s largest team sport with more than 100 oarsmen in one boat.

The serene cruise offers more than scenic beauty. It enables you to try out authentic Kerala cuisine also enables you to experience Kerala’s village life at close quarters.
