Rich in wildlife, it’s not unusual to discover kingfishers, terns, frog, turtles and even otters in this beautiful green ecosystem.
The only way to truly explore this lush world is by staying overnight on board a Kettuvallam, a traditional houseboat. Originally a thatched roof rice barge, these vessels have been converted into luxurious air-conditioned houseboats.
Offering a unique way to explore the tranquil backwaters, you’ll have the chance to stop along the route to meet the locals before returning to feast on delicious local specialities prepared on board.
Voted one of the 50 destinations of a lifetime by National Geographic Traveller, after spending a night in this rare place, it’ll be hard not to agree.
