Kerala backwater cruise experience

Since ancient times Kerala has used its lake and canals as a water network for transporting men and material. Being aboard a houseboat is tranquil, stressless adventures where you will see the beautiful Kerala keep passing by. The houseboat cruise down the mystical backwaters of Kerala is indisputably an experience of a lifetime.

Besides being a cultural heritage, the houseboats (boat-houses) of Kerala offer an innovative kerala holiday idea. The country houseboat in kerala is referred to as 'Kettuvallam'. These eco-friendly Kerala houseboats are made from local materials like bamboo poles, coconut fibre, ropes, bamboo mats, carpets etc.

Usually kerala houseboats are the giant country crafts that are as long as 60 to 70 feet. While aboard the houseboat in Kerala, you may enjoy the facilities of a star categorized hotel. Basically a houseboat is well appointed with an open lounge, one or more bath attached bedrooms and a kitchenette.

Kerala house-boat is generally manned by a crew, consisting of a cook, guide and oarsman. Lazing and relaxing on the sun decks is one of the most popular activities on the boat-house in Kerala. Traditional lanterns take up the place of electricity on the houseboat. On the boat, you may enjoy the serene surroundings along with savoring the traditional specialties of Kerala. Fresh seafood adds to the sumptuous Kuttanadan meals available on the Kerala houseboat.

A boat ride into the countryside offers a close look at rustic kerala village life-skiff-fishermen launching their cockleshell boats, large flocks of domesticated ducks waddling down to the water from thatched houses on the banks. Women, neck-deep in water, with their waist-length hair heaped in a crown, catching fish with their feet, aimless cattle grazing in lush pastures, white lotuses floating here and there in small, shallow ponds.

The tourists on the houseboats may relive the authentic life in the villages of kerala. These kerala houseboat or the taxis on the backwaters of kerala pass through several towns and villages of Kerala. The Vembanad Lake forms the largest backwater stretch in Kerala. You may enjoy Kumarakom, Alleppey or Alappuzha, Kottayam and Kollam on the houseboat while enjoying backwaters of Kerala.
