Hi pavanbadra,

Welcome to Tripadvisor !

The news from Indian Express and The Hindu confirm that workers of Houseboat are on strike in both the districts of Alleppey and Kottayam

thehindu.com/todays-paper/…article3549506.ece

You contact the houseboat operator who will say whether the strike will end soon or continue Otherwise change your destination

with regards,

the strike is called by the houseboat owners association and not by the employees

there is a discussion tomorrow morning

some check-in and check-outs are facilitated from other areas of the backwaters

talk to your agent and re-confirm once again, i hope it will be settled by the time you are here

unfortunately yes and a lot of unsuspecting guests who had booked houseboats are facing issues.

Would advise you to stay in one of the backwater resorts and take a shikara on rent to enjoy backwaters till the strike ends . Hopefully this should end next week
