The backwaters of Alleppey are unfortunately no longer like what you see in the travel catalogues.The waters have become dirty with the rubbish thrown by the villagers and boat operators. Most houseboats are dirty and not up to the mark. Its better to consider a 2 hour boat trip instead of overnight stay as you will be stuck overnight in... More

We had a beautiful house boat booked for us. All we did there was to catch fresh fishes. Enjoy the backwater. Live in the luxurious house boat for a night and watch movies along with fishes and Wine.

Private cabin boat with cook and captain. cruised the backwater canals and stopped overnight and then back. Excellent food and snacks. Stopped at a market to buy crabs which was then served for dinner. Fortunate to witness a traditional drum group playing on the shore.. One more off the bucket list

You can also chose a large boat with proper built in AC rooms. Also the government has waterways like buses operated try one of those. No alcohol available except in... More

We reached Houseboat quay at Alleppy at 1100 on 18th March and embarked on our backwater cruise at sharp 1200 . Our houseboat was a three bedroom double decker houseboat . Our AC bedrooms were self contained . We were told to remove our shoes before entering the houseboat so that the carpets on the floor may not be spoiled... More
