Kuttanad Backwaters

Kuttanad Backwaters is renowned for its expansive network of backwaters, rivers, canals, and lagoons, making it one of the most popular backwater destinations in Kerala.

Kuttanad is a low-lying region below sea level, and it is often referred to as the “Rice Bowl of Kerala” due to its extensive paddy fields and agricultural activities. The backwaters of Kuttanad are an intricate web of water bodies that crisscross the region, providing a unique and picturesque landscape.

Tourists visiting Kuttanad Backwaters can experience the serene and tranquil environment by taking a houseboat cruise. Houseboats, locally known as “kettuvallams,” are traditional boats that have been converted into comfortable and well-appointed accommodations. Cruising through the backwaters on a houseboat offers visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the surroundings, witness the local way of life, and enjoy the tranquility of the waterways.

The backwater cruise takes tourists through palm-fringed canals, lush green paddy fields, and small villages that offer a glimpse into the traditional lifestyle of the people living in the region. The experience is further enhanced by the delicious Kerala cuisine served on board the houseboats, featuring fresh seafood and other regional delicacies.

Alleppey and Kumarakom are two of the most popular starting points for backwater cruises in Kuttanad. The best time to visit Kuttanad Backwaters is during the winter months from November to February when the weather is relatively cool and pleasant.

Kuttanad Backwaters offer a unique and rejuvenating experience, and the combination of the serene landscape, peaceful environment, and traditional houseboat cruise makes it a memorable destination for travelers seeking a peaceful retreat in the heart of Kerala’s backwaters.
