2 Day Alleppey Trip

Hello I'm Planning for a 2 day trip in Alleppey and I'm not interested in taking a one night stay in the houseboat rather I'm preferring for a one day trip in the houseboat .

Can anyone suggest a suitable package or itinerary based on that..and please do mention your tariff too

Thanks in Advance

-John

If you are looking for a houseboat trip without overnight stay , you can stay in a backwater resort and opt for a sun set cruise in the evening . The typical tariff for a good 3 star resort in alleppey will be around 2500 - 3500 INR if you book through a tour operator

Hello jfa548,

This i completely a different place where you come to enjoy natures creation , a place that is surrounded by water , the vast expanse of paddy land that are unique again for the reason that it is below the sea level and you dont get to see such a place in India ( for sure) , it is the way of life of people around this backwater stretch , the numerous canals that criss cross the landscape etc this is a place to relax and enjoy the nature

you havent mentioned when you are travelling , the rates for houseboat for a couple in june july would be starting Rs 6000/- for a day cruise

you can check punnamada lake resort , lake palace alleppey, citrus hotels etc these are with water frontage . hotels in town are arcadia regency, pagoda resorts , hotel prince

Why you think about coming to Varkala.. :D

Varkala, a quiet suburban coastal town, unlike Goa beaches, situated in the outskirts of Trivandrum, is the most opted tourist and romantic travel destination spot in South Kerala. Varkala beach is quite a unique beach holiday destination when compared with Goa , Maldives, Mauritius and Bali; which is characterized by an array of cliffs adjacent to Sea, which is recognized as varkala formation by Geological survey of India and huge backwater stretch flows into the Arabian sea at estuaries. The serene and white beaches equipped with a widespread sand carpet and fresh water spouts or the houseboat cruise through the backwater will set the mood warm for a rejuvenating holiday experience - made this destination, among the best beaches of India and are awarded by millions of world travelers. The coastal township is also famous for many religious customs deeply rooted with Kerala’s cultural heritage is also the tripAdvisors choice, with a 2000year old Vishnu temple on the south cliff. For family beach vacation and honeymooners - a houseboat cruise along backwater, fabulous warm water swim, a walk by the shore with the gentle waves caressing your feet or the splendid sight of sunset on the sea horizon from atop a cliff over hanging the sea will be idle or most perfect . Varkala, as a tripAdvisor, gives you everything in a platter from beach, backwater, estuary, forts, palaces etc. To add cream to the topping are the water adventure sports facilities like Para jumping, board surfing, sailing and kayaking, cycling through the long coastal cycling zone.
