Kerala Backwaters

Come to our home, get pampered by mother nature. You’ll fail to remember the world you are from, but to get spoiled with the peacefulness and freshness of the world you are in.

On board a house boat, take the ride of your life through the scerne palm fringed backwaters of kerala, treat your taste buds the true authentic flavours of the world of spices. Share the smiles with cheerful local kids and experience the essence of true traditional hospitality.

The Kerala backwaters are a chain of lagoons and canals connected to five large lakes lying parallel to the Arabian Sea coast of Kerala state in India. Its fed by 38 rivers flowing down from the Western Ghats range. The entire system is formed by more than 900 km of waterways which has a number of towns and cities in the midst of the entire landscape as the major city being Alleppey, which is called as “Venice of the East”

The backwaters have a unique ecosystem – where freshwater from the rivers meets the seawater from the Arabian Sea. Such fresh water is extensively used for irrigation purposes. Many unique species of aquatic life live in and alongside the backwaters. Palm trees, pandanus shrubs, various leafy plants and bushes grow alongside the backwaters, providing a green hue to the surrounding landscape.
