Kerala - ?God?s Own Country?

November 2015


Traditional styled houseboat Cruise in the Backwaters
(Half Day Cruise including Lunch)

With over 1000 kilometers of backwaters - an intricate network of canals - the best way to "do" Kerala is, undoubtedly, by boat. A floating holiday on the backwater highway is an "out of this world" experience. Journey through waterways that traverse past picturesque villages, fields brimming with ripe paddy and rows of swaying coconut palms. Watch Kerala life, at work and at play.

Kettuvallam - Traditionally, the houseboat was called "Kettuvallam", which means a boat made by tying together pieces of wood. Not a single nail is used in the making of a Kettuvallam. Jack wood planks are joined together with coir rope and then coated with black resin made from boiled cashew nut shells. Today, these giant 80 foot long crafts have been adapted into luxuriously furnished houseboats.

To enjoy the wide varieties of sceneries and freshness of narrow canals we also take a canoe trip which then makes their way past: small villages with mosques, churches, temples and schools, villagers going about their daily chores, and tiny settlements where people live on narrow spits of reclaimed land only a few meters away.
Enjoy the panoramic views of paddy fields, narrow canals and coconut lagoons.
Relax on the boat deck as you sail along the backwaters and enjoy lunch on board (3 hours cruise)
