''Thiruvallam'' back waters

Hello,

I've been trying to find more information about backwater trips from this area ?

There is very little in the way of trip reports from people who have done this, only adverts for trips from this area .

Has anybody done a backwater trip from here ? and if so could you please give me a few details ?

Kind regards .

Hello Chris365n

The Backwaters you mention are badly polluted and little used, I have just spoken to a local taxi driver and he said the waters are very bad smelling.

Thanks for the info Ian,

Thats a plan out of the window then :(

Could you please advise of a backwater trip that would be possible to do when staying in the Kovalam area ? ( arriving a week today )

We require a day cruise and maybe a canoe trip to the inner backwaters ?

Many thanks for your input .
