A HOUSEBOAT CRUISE THROUGH KERALA
 
Welcome to the ‘God’s own Country’ Kerala, situated at south-western region of India—one of the most sought after tour and travel destination visited by tourists from across the world throughout the year. Since it was crowned one of the ten paradises in the world by the National Geographic Traveler magazine, Kerala has become the most favored destination among newlyweds, nature-lovers, adventure- thrillers and holiday seekers. The majesty of this state is beyond the words and visual descriptions, especially the Kerala backwaters. .

Blessed with refreshing and cool hill stations, palm fringed beaches, exotic wildlife parks and beautiful backwaters, Kerala definitely has what it takes to entertain visitors, either first time or return travellers. Kerala is most popularly known as a backwater destination, which has no comparison in the world. Come, experience the beauty of Kerala’s backwaters.

Kerala is the land to experience a paradise, where natural beauty is abounding and astonishing. Hills, forests, lakes, rivers, backwaters, seashores, lush green paddy fields and coconut groves, it is just like listing tantalizing dishes to customers. No tourist would like to forgo this fig - leaf shaped land on the south - west tip of the Indian subcontinent.

Alappuzha (Alleppey), the coastal township tops every visitor’s list of must-see places in Kerala. The Alleppey backwaters and its vast stretch of beach provide comfort to the soul. Mariners over centuries have known the Alappuzha beach as a safe anchorage area even when the sea is rough. Alleppey backwaters and Alleppy houseboats provide a panoramic view of the coconut tree dotted coastline, a truly marveling sight. Alappuzha can be accessed via road, rail and water from Cochin, Kottayam and Trivandrum.

Backwater cruises and houseboat rides through the winding canals are an unforgettable experience. Great houseboat packages, which include a filling of typical Kerala food, especially the fish laced spicy menu of Alappuzha will leave you craving for more and more of the Alappuzha backwaters experience.

Backwaters are the perfect web of lagoons, lakes and rivers; the beauty of which can be enjoyed through mobile homes or Houseboats also known as Kettuvallams in the traditional language. Backwater Houseboat packages are now becoming very popular among visitors. A stay at one of the Alleppey beach resorts is a unique experience. If you really wish to experience the world of water then you must do the houseboat ride through the Alleppey backwaters.

During a Kerala Houseboat Cruise, you will have an opportunity to experience nature up close. In earlier times, houseboats or Kettuvallams were used only for transportation purposes. They ruled the backwaters, poled along by one or two men, heavily loaded with rice, coconut and other commodities. But in the recent times, the kettuvalloms have been replaced by modern modes of transport, relegating them to neglect. Today, an innovative tourism idea has restored these majestic representatives of a unique culture, and with them their makers. The houseboats are now fitted with modern facilities and used for backwater rides for tourists. Modified to meet a novel concept of holidaying, the kettuvalloms (houseboats) are comfortably furnished with an open lounge, one or two bath attached bedrooms and a kitchenette, and are extremely eco friendly, merging smoothly into the panorama. Every houseboat is manned by a crew - usually a cook, guide and oarsman.

A number of times, while you are on a trip discovering a new place, a sense of dissatisfaction dawns upon and makes you feel as if the happiness felt at knowing the place was not worth the effort put in to reach there. Not so with Kerala Backwaters. The Kerala Backwater experience will give you much more than just simple happiness. It will give you a feeling of elation.

There are numerous backwater destinations in this state one can visit during Houseboat Tours to Kerala. Attractive houseboat and backwater packages take your through scenic places like Kumarakom, Alleppey, Thiruvalam, Kottayam, Kuttanad, Cochin, Kollam and many others.

You can see and experience the life of the people living on the banks. You stop to look at paddy cultivation, watch local fishing, and see historic churches and local temples. During the evening, you can generally see the people of the community meeting and relaxing by the backwaters. Your houseboat will anchor at around 5.30pm for the night. You’ll enjoy breakfast on board the rice boat before arriving in Alleppey where you disembark.
