Kerala backwater is a feeling!!! If you randomly ask a Keralite for place recommendations, they will unambiguously answer “KERALA BACKWATERS.” The coconut tree barriers, rustic schools, devoted fishers, and the serene ambiance of Kerala backwaters proffers a therapeutic effect for the visitors. I reckon the people who wake up every day to see this mesmerizing beauty will be free from mental juggles. However, the best way to explore this stunning riparian zone is to hire a houseboat. The houseboat ride in Dal lake opened the door to the magnificent beauty of the Kashmir valley; likewise, A HEAVENLY RIDE IN KERALA BACKWATERS will gift you an extraordinary life experience.
I personally love to do Kerala backwater cruising and won’t get tired of it, because of the-
The beauty of the backwaters should be felt with the soul. As the houseboat levitates through the backwaters, you will witness the real beauty of God’s own country.
The green paddy fields with coconut tree barricades, the freshwater lake with fishers and the charming houses on the river banks will give you an ecstatic emotion.
A trip to Kerala is incomplete without the authentic Kerala cuisines. The houseboat journey in the backwaters will let you savor the authentic FRESH Kerala cuisines.
Fresh means the freshly caught fish from the lake prepared in the Kerala style.
The houseboat is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen and chefs who will serve you scrumptious food on board.
Life is raw and real here. You will witness the smiling faces of tourists and fishers on the lake. This place is so serene that you will smile from the heart.
The strangers will wave at you, and the kids will play with you. The houseboat will have frequent pit stops, especially on the toddy shops and shore side where you will witness the most innocent people who are happy to mingle with you.
Nature plays a lullaby in Kerala backwaters. The mild rumbling sound of water, chirping of birds and the gusting of breeze, vanquish all the meditation pieces of music in the world.
You will immerse yourself in this therapeutic ambiance.
The Ayurvedic massage has the power to heal the mind and body. You can experience this authentic traditional decorum at the river banks of Alappuzha.
Loosen yourself and enjoy the impeccable hospitality of the Keralites by signing up for a rejuvenating spa treatment from the resorts. Refresh yourself with the renowned Kerala ayurvedic massage or panchakarma.
I took the overnight houseboat package and woke up in the morning to witness one of the most magical sunrise in my life.
The devotional song from the nearby temple, the magic rays from the morning sun that gives a soothing shade to the lake water, birds chirping and the music of the creeks made me go spellbound.
Where to go for backwater houseboat ride?
I would personally recommend choosing Alapuzha to have the houseboat ride since it is a world-renowned backwater tourist destination. Alappuzha or Alleppey is the city on the Laccadive Sea in the southern Indian state of Kerala. It is known as the Venice of the east and is outstanding for the scenic beauty.
When to go for houseboat ride?
Monsoon is the best time to make a houseboat ride. The rain creates a soothing ambiance, making it picture perfect. It is the one place in Kerala that let you enjoy the real beauty of the rain.
However, it is okay to travel all year around. Make sure that your boat is equipped with proper air conditioning if you are going during summer.
