There is a reason why the world lauds the backwater experience of Kerala. Picturesque, calm, serene and offering the rarest of experiences, these backwaters are truly a source of fascination and delight. Among a handful of these that flow into our hearts, the Kuttanad backwaters indeed top the list. Considered to be among the finest water worlds in the planet, Kuttanad attracts visitors from all parts of the world. Landscapes draped in mind-blowing greenery, coconut palms, backwaters, and amazing village life experiences – it’s a package that will win your hearts.
Known as the ‘Rice Bowl of Kerala’, Kuttanad stretches across an area of 500 sq. km. The enchanting waterways in the region consist of lakes, canals, rivers and many rivulets. One of the unique features of Kuttanad is that farming is carried out here below sea level, which is rare. A boat ride across the Kuttanad backwaters is a must-have experience on your trip to the area. The best way to do it is to hire one of the hundreds of houseboats available in the locale. You can sail peacefully along these waters, watching and experiencing the village life on the shore and relaxing to the soothing lullabies of Nature.
