Kerala is famous for the breathtaking beauty of its backwaters. An intricate system of interconnected waterways, rivers, lakes and inlets, the backwaters run parallel to the Arabian sea and offer rare scenic beauty. Palm and coconut trees line the interconnected waterways along which lie cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, small towns and villages with churches, mosques, temples and schools.
As your houseboat winds its way along these spectacular waterways you will be able to witness a way of life that is beautiful, laid-back and where natural beauty abounds.
