The House Boat or Kettuvallam cruise The cruise takes you across lake Vembanad, through narrow canals heading South passing low lying rice fields, churches temples, schools and a complete life style in a water world. Stop to buy fish or tender coconut, enjoy delicious food of the boat men or just relax and enjoy the beauty. Boat anchors at sunset to prevent getting entangled in the fish nets. It’s also a magic moment, rocking gently counting stars and finally to bed  in the middle of no-where.

We recommend a two night cruise but even the one nighter is an experience, not to be missed. 

Time on a Houseboat flows at a languid pace. Recline on the foredeck and slowly get into the natural rhythm of life. Still your mind and let nature work its magic on your senses. Watch the palm trees sway in the breezes coming over the rice fields, as a cormorant passes overhead. Hear the sharp music of the birdcalls and feel the gentle slap of water knocking at your door.

You catch a whiff of fresh fish roasted over a coal fire. A short refreshing nap after lunch and the magic of the evening envelops you. Relax in an armchair with your favorite drink in hand and watch the sky change color, till it seems to meld seamlessly with the water. Then the stars make an appearance in the dome above. Frogs croak as the birdsong fades and countless fireflies light the path ahead. Dinner made in the traditional way and you come to something rare: the perfect end to a perfect day.

Overview

  • Explore the famous Kerala Backwaters Vembanad Lake Alleppey

on board a traditional houseboat.Vembanad Lake is the longest lake in India, and the largest lake in the state of Kerala. The Lake is famous for its exceptional scenic beauty, lush green surroundings and exciting boat cruises.

Centered around the 90km expanse of Lake Vembanad, the backwaters of Kerala are a unique – and fragile -ecosystem unlike any other in the world. Enveloping  the port towns of Alleppey and Quilon on one end, they stretch like a patchwork quilt clear across the state, to Calicut in the north.

Some are no wider than an armspan, navigable only by canoe. Others are dual carriageways, deep and rippling, sometimes broadening out into vast misty lakes, sometimes curling into twisting wormturns, hemmed by paddy fields and fed by a thousand fat streams from the high ranges of the Spice Mountains to the east.

  • Experiencing life on Kerala backwaters
  • Explore the Charm of Backwaters of Kerala
  • Kerala backwaters, a throwback to simple times
  • A Simple, Wholesome Meal

Your meals are prepared by your boatmen in their traditional manner. In other words, lots of fresh flavours and a minimum of fuss. It is the very same food which they eat, made with tangy spices and with a lot of coconut. The fish was probably caught while you were sleeping, then marinated in red chilies, ginger and lime, before being grilled. Accompaniments may include lentils and gourd cooked with fresh pepper and mustard seeds, served  with  greens handpicked from the little markets that dot the canals. And (we need hardly add), lots of steaming bowls of rice.

  • This overnight cruise includes all meals, comfortable accommodation, an English speaking Driver guide/ Local Guide and round trip transfers from Kovalam Beach Trivandrum, Kerala.
