Witnessing Life by the River at its Simplest and Most Beautiful
On the journey through Kerala’s backwaters, it’s possible to visit a number of beautiful villages. We encourage travellers to witness this laid-back and peaceful life, occupied with coir making, fishing and shell harvesting.
Meet the locals, the weavers, the coconut harvesters and farmers and engage in conversation about the riparian life. Watch various indigenous techniques of fishing: using shore-based ‘Chinese nets’, by drifting nets and or by hand
Don’t miss the opportunity to cruise the interiors of these waterways where expanses of land are reclaimed from the lake for paddy cultivation.
Life here takes a more idyllic meaning and you’re guaranteed to walk away with food for thought.
