Kumarakom - Alleppey – Houseboat
After you had your leisurely breakfast and some free time at the resort in the morning, you will get on board a houseboat, locally known as kettuvallam, to embark on an overnight cruise to Alleppey through the mesmerizing backwaters, where lunch, snacks, evening tea and dinner are served on board.
Basically, the houseboat will travel until sunset to Alleppey where it anchors for the night.
Originally used to transport rice in the past, these houseboats are among the major attractions in Kerala today as a fantastic way to enjoy the splendid backwaters.
Their quaint design and languid grace adds another beautiful element to your cruise. They have fully equipped kitchens handled by experienced cooks to prepare authentic Keralan cuisine for you.
They also have well-furnished and air-conditioned rooms with attached bathrooms to ensure that you will have a good sleep for the night.
During this cruise, you will learn how the waterways of Kerala play a significant role in the region’s economy as they connect remote islands and villages to the mainland.
This will be an incredibly unique and unforgettable experience that you will have during your tour.
