The Kerala backwaters are a chain of brackish lagoons and lakes parallel to the Arabian Sea coast.
Cruise along the twisting Kerala backwaters, catch the sun set as the birds returning to their nests, sip tea while soaking up spectacular landscape, take a peek into the local life along the waters and have delicious local delicacies made by the in-house cook.
