Sailing in the backwaters of Alleppey is akin to floating in a realm of calmness. The gentle rocking in a houseboat and the mild ripples of the backwaters would take you far away from the clutter of your daily routine. The tunes that would come to your mind would be 'merrily, life is but a dream'.
Explore the famous Kerala backwaters of Alleppey on board a traditional houseboat for night stay. Alleppey, also known as Alappuzha, is located between the Arabian Sea and a web of rivers flowing into it. In the early 20th century, the then Viceroy of the Indian Empire, Lord Curzon was so mesmerized by the scenic beauty he declared that Alleppey was “The Venice of the East.”
Alappuzha is a watery heaven of interlinking canals, seemingly endless paddy fields, and perennially swaying coconut trees. The best view of this landslip is from outside, from the Alleppey houseboats cruising through the backwaters.Travelling in a houseboat in Alleppey is not just a matter of exquisite window views. It is an enchanting experience in itself. The cool breeze, the occasional migratory birds, and seasonal rains make the boat ride a unique experience that you can savour forever.
