The Backwaters of Kerala is unique and is found nowhere else in the world. Backwaters are a network of lakes, canals and estuaries and deltas of forty-four rivers that drain into the Arabian Sea. The backwaters of Kerala are a self supporting eco-system teeming with life. The most exciting aspect of Kuttanadu is the Kettuvallam (traditional Houseboat) which has become the most popular tourism product in India today.

A relaxing trip with great food and beautiful scenery. The crew were friendly, the cooking was magnificent and the bedroom was very comfortable. Thoroughly recommend chugging around the backwaters if you have the chance.
