Kerala Backwaters

Posted by keralaofficial on May 19, 2011

The only way to discover the real Kerala is to cruise along its backwaters. You will experience a totally different Kerala as you sail down these soothing waters in a country craft and absorb this unusual representation of Kerala life. Kerala’s centuries-old, palm fringed backwaters stretch over 1900 kms.

The backwaters act as a vital waterway for the transport of goods, people and their produce and are more often than not the only link between isolated villages and crowded towns. Stretched over a total expanse of 1500 kms, the backwaters have a network of 44 rivers, lagoons and lakes from north to south.

As you sail along on a houseboat you drift into a land that time forgot and watch picture-book towns and ancient trading posts float by. You can see the sky shimmer through a coconut canopy and hear the wind to bring you the oarsman’s song. You can sail a cloud and dream a dream in the tranquility of the backwaters.

When you wish to get away from it all and set your soul free, the one place which will surely soothe your soul is the backwater of Kerala. It is the best way to rejuvenate your mind and body. So if you are really looking for peace of mind, take a break at the backwaters of Kerala!
