Backwaters in Kerala, India

Experience life along the backwaters of Kerala. Take a ride in a 'kettuvallum' or houseboat through the gently flowing canals and see up close the village life along the way or glide along in a houseboats for a couple of days as the crew takes you through some sparsely populated stretches of calm waters with overhanging coconut palm trees. A cruise through the backwater can be immensely rewarding, invigorating and certainly acts as a de-stressing agent.
