“Boring routine trip”

We took the recommended canoe boat tour through the DTPC. This is cheap (400 R) incl. taxi and ferry to the island. The boat ride follows the same route as apparently in ages, and everything is routine down to the 2 pineapple plants, which represent the islands' fruit plantations.

The trip was nice, but nothing extremely existing. If one wants to get an idea about the village life in the backwaters that is a good option. But do not expect to much. It is cleaner than other areas in the backwaters, but still pretty dirty due to plastic waste in the water. The guide was friendly, but did not explain much about the history and so on....

Most amazing place in Backwaters. If you are planning on exploring Kerala's channel this is the best place to see it.

We were recommended the canoe trip by a number of other travellers. We were shown the wonderful sites and sounds of the backwaters by Vijeesh, a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We learnt a lot about the local nature and Vijeesh was brilliant at spotting the beautiful birds that live in the backwater. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable trip, would recommend it to everyone.

We took a canoe trip to Munroe island. Was one of the highlights of our trip to Kerala. So serene and beautiful. Much better than the large house boats.
