Cruise

Rice Boats, which were in service during early years when water transport was prevalent in the state, were hit hard with the development of surface transport. Lorries began to assume the many roles of Rice Boats. Many of them were later converted into House Boats which became popular with tourists and locals alike. Kuttanadu is one of the many places blessed with the beauty of the backwaters, paddy fields and many canals connecting palces within the Alapuzha region. A leisurely cruise along the coconut-palm lined canals and backwaters and into the Vembanadu Lake from noon till morning the next day with food cooked on-board and air-conditioned bedrooms is one of the must-see sights according to National Geographic “50 destinations of a lifetime”.
