Kerala tour is incomplete without savoring Backwaters. Backwaters are a unique Kerala phenomenon. It is a complex network of manmade and natural canals and inlets, estuaries of over forty rivers and five lakes. Backwaters make for breathtaking setting with shores lined by abodes, swaying coconut trees, emerald flora and lush green paddy fields, fishing nets and activities of life; and backwaters marked by water flowers especially water lilies. Cruises savoring this exquisite setting are blissful affairs. Alleppey, Kochi, Kollam and Kumarakom are the epicenters of Backwater tourism.
Houseboats are the new buzzwords in Backwater tourism. Houseboats are modern day luxurious versions of erstwhile “Kettuvallams”. Houseboats come with sleeping space, dining space and sit out open on all sides, from where exquisite charm of Backwaters can be relished. They come adjoined with generators providing for air conditioning. Although Houseboats are motorized, they are run at a sluggish pace.
In Thekkady, wildlife can be savored while having a leisure boat trip in the artificial lake surrounding the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary.
