Full description
Hop aboard a house boat to cruise through Alleppey, a cluster of little island villages on Vembanad Lake, that is 70-km South of Cochin City. This is a truly unique experience that you will remember for years to come.

Your guide will meet you at your hotel or in Cochin Port after your cruise ship arrives, and drive you to Alleppey, where you’ll board a motorboat or house boat. Then you’re on your way to the Backwaters, which are a unique phenomenon on the coastline of Kerala. It is created by a huge body of water called Vembanadu Lake which used to be part of the sea, but is now separated by a narrow strip of land on the Western side. The lake plays a significant role in the lives of the people in 3 major districts in central Kerala.

Glimpse back into time at a life style that is over a century old as you relax on this 4-hour cruise. Along the way you will enjoy a delicious lunch that is prepared and served on the house boat. The cruise will also give you the opportunity to snap photos of the wide variety of wildlife including birds and vegetation that inhabit the waters.
