Take a Kerala Backwater Cruise on a holiday with Wendy Wu Tours
The backwaters of Kerala are a unique waterborne world – a colossal web of lakes, lagoons, canals and rivers lined with towering palms and lush foliage. The waters are plied by kettuvallams, or houseboats, that were originally barges used to transport grain. Now they offer the very best way to explore the backwaters, cruising lazily amongst the maze to give you a chance to enjoy life on the water and anchoring overnight for you to drift off to the sound of lapping water. Local food is prepared on board for an all-round authentic Keralan experience.
