Just 60km south of engaged Cochin lies a space of ultimate tranquility —some of the most beautiful backwater in India. Travel to Allapuzha district and hop on a traditional wooden houseboat to explore the green Alleppey, also known as the Venice of the East region of India, in full. The tour starts with a morning hotel/port pick up taking you to the boarding area. Begin your cruise of Alleppey and drift past lush paddy fields, fragrant coconut farms, quaint farming villages and more. At 12pm a delicious Keralan lunch will be served onboard —and you will get to enjoy local delicacies with the backdrop of beautiful waterscapes. At 1.30 pm the cruise comes to an end and you hop back into a comfy airconditioned vehicle for a transfer back to your hotel
