Our idyllic trip to the backwaters of Kerala kick-started at Kumarakoam. We took a ride on the on the houseboat to explore the backwaters thoroughly. One can breathe in the scenic beauty and understand why it is called God's Own Country
Kerala House Boats & Backwaters
Nature is plentiful in and around the backwaters. Spotting this butterfly in my favorite color was fun. I couldn't stop spotting so many more and I lost track of time . Eventually we headed for lunch at the end of the day.
The sunset point at the backwaters
I happened to stay at one of the resorts that was exactly situated near the backwaters. I was fortunate to shoot videos during sunset and marvel at the peace surrounding this place.
Alleppey Backwater Cruise
Comfort ride around backwaters
We planned to explore the backwaters of Kerala and so we headed to Aleppy Backwaters next. Although a slow ride , we made a fast forward video highlighting the distance and extent of exploration of the surreal backwaters

Narrow canals can be explored
One of my friends got a drone in the sky to shoot the other kind of ride one can have in the backwaters. Houseboats, vallam rides and boats move around these backwaters often and make for a great country view.
Indulge in fresh local sea food
We didn't just ride around the backwaters but also did some bird watching and gorge on some delicious sea food. Our exploration ended quite interestingly with exquisite , not so regular views of Kerala.
Available in specific areas
This is how a vallam ride is more advantageous than houseboat ride- exploring small , narrow places to get a closer glimpse of backwaters and local life. This sure was exciting for me.
