Description:

   The Backwaters of Kerala is unique and is found nowhere else...

   The Backwaters of Kerala is unique and is found nowhere else in the world. Backwaters are a network of lakes, canals and estuaries and deltas of forty-four rivers that drain into the Arabian Sea. The backwaters of Kerala are a self supporting eco-system teeming with life. The most exciting aspect of Kuttanadu is the Kettuvallam (traditional Houseboat) which has become the most popular tourism product in India today.

Had a great time with eco trails.kence was extremely helpful in organising the trip and gave us information about Kerala and the local environment. We were amazed by how large and comfortable the boat was - great for cruising through the backwaters. Food was fantastic and on board crew were courteous and helpful. Highly recommended.
