Alleppey - The Soul of Backwater Experience:
God's own country …officially known, the state of Kerala is occupying a significant place in the tourist map of India. Alleppey is one of the most important tourist center in Kerala state, with a large network of inland canals earning it the sobriquet "Venice of the east". These large network of canals provide Alleppey its lifeline and immense natural beauty. Alleppey is also known for its spectacular snake - boat races held on the second Saturday of August, every year. A singularity of this land is the region called Kuttanad- a land of lush paddy fields referred to as the Rice Bowl of Kerala and one of the few places in the world where farming is done below sea level. In this world of simple pleasures, you'll skim past Chinese fishing nets, water lilies, lush paddy fields, coir villages, rustic homes, ancient temples, churches and coconut groves. There is simply nothing more enchanting than a refreshing cruise along the gorgeous Alleppey backwaters that would make all the hard work you do throughout the year worthwhile.
Step Back in to History - House boats formerly known as rice boats - have been plying the inland waterways of Kerala for centuries even before Vasco Da Gama first discovered India along the Malabar coast. Traditional house boats are often 80 to 100 feet in length with a width of around 16 feet, constructed using the ancient principles of wooden boat building and are remarkable specimens of workmanship. Alleppey is an important backwater destination attracting several thousand tourists every year. Cruise along the palm-fringed water ways of Kerala in a luxury house boat is the most enchanting holiday experience in India today.
Blends with Nature - Use of eco-friendly materials that go into the house boat making are local seasoned woods, coir and bamboo mats.
