Make Your DAYS memorable.....

That Cost Almost Nothing

Cruising along the backwaters of Kerala is an unforgettable experience. If you have not experienced it, here is a golden opportunity to do it at a fraction of its original cost. You could get in any House Boat of your liking, saunter down the cool placid waters of our world-famous backwaters, have a merry time and get back home either the same day or after spending a night as well out floating around.

You will enjoy the lovely home-made-like food served on board, appreciate the fine level of hospitality and you will go back home a new rejuvenated person altogether.
That's what a cruise along the backwaters in a House Boat can do to you, to your wife and children - or to you and your close friends or corporate colleagues.
The real attraction is the way KERALA.COM is arranging those magnificent and enjoyable House Boat trips for the convenience of the tourists/holiday seekers.

House Boats
are huge, slow moving, exotic barges designed for sheer leisure trips. Formerly, House Boat were used to ship rice and spices and other goods between Kuttanad and the Cochin port. It was a three-day affair those days. A standard House Boat, which could be about 100 feet long, can hold up to 30 tons, and that is as much as three big lorries can.

A House Boat (which is made of hundreds of fine but heavy-duty planks of jack-wood) is held together absolutely by coir knots (not a single nail is used). KETTU means knot. This framework is then coated with a caustic black resin extracted from boiled cashew kernels. And it lasts for generations.
Alleppey is the citadel of House BoatS: There are some 120 of them, well maintained and perfected as luxury liners here.

The crew cook on board, and most often, their meals included delicious peralspot fish caught straight from the water. A portion of the House Boat had bamboo roofing, and that was where the crew would rest.

The tradition continues: You will be enjoying the finest Kuttanadan delicacies when you saunter down the backwaters. You will be lounging in the best-furnished cabins with a view you cannot find anywhere else in the world, and the entire milieu is ecological. Fresh food, cooked in inimitable Kuttanadan style is the rage of the international tourists.

House Boat
have all the creature comforts of a good hotel but none of those hassles: well-furnished bedrooms, modern hygienic toilets, cosy living rooms, beautiful kitchen and in some cases even a balcony for angling.

Most House Boat are powered by remarkably unobtrusive outboard engines: some are poled by experienced oarsmen.

A ride in a House Boat is the most stunning experience you could ever float into, or get floated into.

And, nothing like it, if it rains while you are cozy inside the luxurious House Boat. It will be the most magical moment of your life. You could watch millions of drops of water splashing and pounding on the rhythm of the falling rain like you never had in all your life.
