Irreplaceable shores !! Through the backwaters of Kerala
The answer would be a long one if you ask about the amazing sights of Kerala, God’s own country. But we have no doubt that it is the foremost. The Backwaters themselves. Backwaters with greenery, natural beauty, waves, and scenery are the main attraction of Kerala Travel.
There are plenty of places to go on a cruise, folk food, sunset views, and life on land. Here you can read about the top five backwaters tourist destinations in Kerala.
Kumarakom is one of the fascinadoras destinations on the map of the tourist of Kerala. The Kumarakom travel offers a glimpse of the Vembanad Lake, its islands, and its unique landscape. Kumarakom, the tent of greenery, is also known as the Netherlands of Kerala. The name comes from the fact that it is located below sea level. Houseboat rides on the Vembanad Lake are not to be missed here. A houseboat ride on the shores of the lake can be a completely different experience, as well as a time to taste the local cuisine.
Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, Bay Island Driftwood Museum, and Pathiramanal can also be visited on this trip.
The story of the backwaters of Kerala does not begin without mentioning Alappuzha, known as the Venice of the East. George-Nathaniel Curzon, originally Viceroy and Governor-General of British India, saw the unique landscape of Alappuzha and first called it the Venice of the East. Freshwater rivers and canals are the reasons behind this. Being able to descend into the lakes of Alappuzha is not only eye-catching but also the most important thing that makes a trip beautiful. Boat rides, coastal temples, and lifestyles make Alappuzha a popular tourist destination.
Kuttanad is famous for its attractions. The beauty of the lake attracts tourists. The scenic views of the backwaters are enough to realize the beauty of Kuttanad. The biggest wonder of Kuttanad is the paddy cultivation below sea level. Only two regions of the world have the distinction of being cultivated below sea level. One of them is Kuttanad.
Once in Kuttanad, houseboat travel and accommodation is a must. If you are traveling in a low package, you can opt for homestays. This is one of the best places to enjoy the unique cuisine and sights of Kuttanad.
Valiyaparamba is a beautiful lake located in the Kasaragod district of Kerala. The place has been popular among tourists for a very short period of time and is an ideal place for enjoying natural beauty and boating. The island is located at a distance of 5 km from Cheruvathur and is separated from the shores of Kawwai Lake. The place is popularly known as the Fishing Village.
Although Kuttanad and Kumarakom are famous, the backwaters of Kollam are popular destinations for domestic and international tourists. Known as the ‘Gateway City of Kerala Backwaters’, Ibn Battuta described the world as one of the five major ports of Kollam. Ashtamudi Lake, Monroe Island, Alumkadavu, and Amritapuri are some of the beautiful backwaters in Kollam.
