Kerala Houseboat Tour
The Kerala Houseboat is the perfect way to experience the calm and unique ecology of the Kerala backwaters. Our office in Kerala on the edge of the backwaters works with all the different houseboats and can offer anything from a one day stay to a month long cruise through the whole backwater system.
The houseboats of Kerala are unique to this area of India and were the historic method for transporting rice and other trade through the aqeous centre of Kerala to the ports on the coast at Kollam, Aleppey and Cochin. In the last twenty years, the boats have been converted to take visitors through the small canals and villages that still inhabit this road-less and car-less world. From your daybed in the bows of the boat you can watch the traditional life of backwater and can enjoy the morning, Kerala continue on this much as it has done for centuries: women washing from the ghats before their houses, farmers shepherding thousands of ducks, paddy fields being flooded and washed or the night fishermen fishing by their lights.
The houseboats used for cruising on the tranquil backwaters of Kerala,
are innovative adaptations of the traditional cargo carriers along the
network of inland water navigation routes in the western coastal lowlands
of the state, especially in southern Kerala. Such cargo crafts made
of local tropical woods like jack tree, teak and coconut fiber ropes,
were made in different sizes and capacities for carrying loads. There
were skilled carpenters in Kerala, who made such country crafts using
local materials. Different types of watercrafts were made for different
uses. The famous snake boats were for military / army logistics to quickly
transport soldiers and materials along and across wide and long waterways
during the early and medieval centuries.
