Beach & water, Countryside & scenery, Local experience
USD70.0 per person
Approximately 6.00 hours.
Relax on this leisurely cruise through the famous Kerala backwaters, passing lush vegetation and local villages along the way. The ‘backwaters’ are an extensive network of rivers, lakes, canals and lagoons that lace together the coast and interior of Cochin. Glimpse the rural life you would never see from the road, as you pass brilliant green paddy fields and palm-lined banks where papaya, mango, jack fruit and cassava grow. See coconut harvesting and coir factories that make up Kerala’s main industry, and see villagers wash their clothes, and sometimes their buffaloes, at the water's edge.
