Kerala’s Houseboat and Backwater Tourism


Every traveller in Kerala looks forward to the legendary backwater cruise of Kerala. Traversing the breath-taking backwaters of Kerala in a majestic houseboat is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that remains etched in your memory for all the years to come. Present day houseboats are huge, slow moving exotic barges used for leisure trips, and are the reworked version of ancient kettuvallams.
