Waterways

The romantic and unique Backwaters of Kerala are made up of a web of waterways that forms a natural inland transport network that stretch between Cochin and Quilon or Kollam in the south. From the vastness of Lake Vembanad to the quiet streams, just large enough for a canoe, the Backwaters form the arteries through which rural daily life, calmly flows - children splashing in the water, women washing clothes at the water's edge, fishermen up to their necks in water digging out fish with their feet, rice barges transporting coconuts and rice, the staples of the Keralan dieit and many more happening of life on backwaters keeps every traveler spellbound.
