On a houseboat ride from Alappuzha aboard a traditional kettuvallam, get a feel for local life in this rural region of India. The non-air-conditioned rice boat glides across the backwaters of Alappuzha, providing a glimpse of daily activities like fishing, prawn farming, and more.
Your tour starts in the late morning with pickup from your hotel in Cochin for the drive to Alleppy, where you'll board your houseboat a little after midday. Enjoy a welcome drink as the 5-hour cruise begins along Punnamada Lake, home to Nehru Trophy Boat Race.
Admire views of Vembanad Lake, and observe a bit of village life as you travel past the banks. After about 30 minutes, the boat stops for a lavish lunch of traditional Kerala cuisine. Then continue cruising, passing by rice paddies, palm-lined canals, and churches. In the late afternoon, enjoy coffee or tea with Kerala-style snacks before your cruise ends in the early evening. You may choose if you want to be dropped off at the boat jetty or back at your hotel in Alappuzha/Cochin. Hotel pickup and drop-off Extra as your select ex. Cochin.
