Kerala Backwaters are the most popular tourist attraction of Kerala. Backwaters of Kerala is ranked among the ten paradise of the world by the ‘National Geographic Travellers’ and has emerged as the most popular backwaters destination. Kerala backwater is a broad stretch of waterway that is a lasting source of livelihood and Kerala tourism. Other than being the rippling beauty surrounded by the tall palm and coconut trees, the backwaters in Kerala is the reason that draw thousands of domestic and international tourists every year.
Kerala’s palm-fringed backwaters are inland lakes connected by a network of canals. With 41 west-flowing rivers, the backwaters stretch to almost 1,900 kilometers. The backwater routes date back over the centuries and have been long used for all transportation needs, in particular trade in coconut, rubber, rice and spices. Today, these waterways link remote villages and islands to the mainland and nerve centers of the coastal area.
The most suitable way to explore the breathtaking beautiful backwaters of Kerala is Houseboats. The Kerala backwater tours along the shade of coconut fridges and the leisurely floating traditional ‘Kettuvalams’, which is popularly known as Kerala houseboats entitle as the best.
Kerala’s glorious Kuttanad region, on both banks of Vembanad Lake, has the much-hyped backwaters, a rich culture that displays people’s lives and not just their memories to linger on.
Visit the backwaters of Vembanad, on the sides of which are nestled several islands of enchantment, providing a vast scope of affluent photography. Make a stopover at the rural corners, still untouched by the hands of modernity.
As you will pass through the locks that separate salt water from freshwater, the scenery would then begin to change – larger islands, broader canals, herons sporting in the paddy fields and a setting sun that vanishes behind the coconut trees, growing at mad angles on the water-front.
