Perfect combination of comfort and hospitality and moreover life on water is soul satisfying .People of Kerala are very nice and weather add up to the charm of holidaysBeen to many international destinations aswell but, honestly , Kerala is among top.
Really attractive place and excellent boat ride
This is one of the best part of Alleppy, rather Kerala. We went in July, in complete rainy season but got a sunny day doing boat ride in Backwaters. There are two options, you can either stay in a house boat and enjoy the serene beauty or if you are not comfortable staying in the less luxurious place, you can stay in any Veembanad or Kumarkom lake resort and do a Sikara ride in the backwater. We followed the second option, and really liked the water ride. It will take more than 3 hours to roam around most of the water alleys Kumarkom Bird Sanctuary. Normally the Sikara charge will be around 900 per hour and it has good sitting capacity or around 10 people. Moreover if you get a friendly boatman, it will be an outstanding experience.
It is neary 35 kms away from alleppey and not worth to go.
Nothing is there as it is shown in internet. traveling 35 kms to watch only water is not worth.. no park or anything is there near the lake. There is only one old small abandoned church.I would suggest don't go to vembanad if you going to alleppey
Vembanad lake is clean and clear
Vembanad lake is clean and clear.. its home for houseboats and their stopping point.. They take you through a journey of backwaters which shows the South's greenery and cleanliness..
Tropical food in tropical region
Tropical fruit in Tropical region. Top of Pineapple fruit lookes like palm trees. This pictures was taken at perfect location. Show off your creativity Kerala will never disappoint you. I can bet you can never have a dull moment in the entire state.This shot was taken at Vembanad lake from the houseboat at the time of sunset. What could i say? Never experienced this beautiful sunset ever in my life.
Lake for house boats
Take a sunrise tour and you will definitely enjoy the sight provided there is no cloud!. You can take ride for 1 -2 hours. Thought it is scenic but at some places its too dirty!
Best place for relaxing
Best place for relaxingThe boat houses in the backwater is good getaway for Couples, and Family. They have daytime cruising or full day stay. I would recommend daytime cruising as the dock during the night after 5 PM.
Life in houseboat
Houseboat ride through vembanad lake, the longest lake in India. you can get the houseboats from punnamada lake it would be 7000Rs to 9000Rs for a double room houseboats in common days. while seasons like celebrations it will be twice. Ride starts at morning 11am and end at next day 9am. Better for group Travellers. perfect getaway from messing of town life. 3 staffs, including the driver. Good service from the staffs. Good food. special karimeen fry(Green chromide), it's so tasty. you can do anything what you usually do at your home. you can drink alcohol there. But carefull don't make fight you will be beaten by the locals. don't destroy anything in the boat you will get charged for that. you can enter to local toddy shop if you want. safe ride for the Travellers.
Awesome boat trip
The lake is very big connecting Kochi and other major parts of Kerala. The boat trip is amazing and you will find the water clean. The natural beauty of the lake with trees, tiny islands, resorts are beautiful and you will feel relaxed. One should visit Alleypey if they are visiting Kerala. It is a must trip that everyone should go atleast once in their lifetime and I am sure they will enjoy the trip.
Awesome visit in shikara but the house boat was too expensive 7000 plus for 3 hours and that too with no proper food in house boat. Only dal roti.It is best to take shikara as it can enter village around the lake and canal where as house boat drives u only in lake .Plus no use of house boat rooms as u need to come out of it to view the scenic beauty.Otherwise the lake and the view vest place on earth. Very very relaxing.
