Located 80 km from Cochin, Alleppey offers picturesque views of paddy fields, shrubs, trees and luxurious houseboats all around. These views can be best enjoyed during a backwater cruise in Kerala on traditional Kettuvalloms. These heritage boats were used to transport rice, spices and other materials. Later in 1990s, these were transformed to luxurious houseboats for the ease of tourists who wished to explore the divine beauty of the state while living on waters. This is perhaps the best way to have a glimpse of natural beauty, culture & traditions and enchanting flora & fauna of the region.
