Kerala is known as the Venice of the east and the backwaters of Kuttanadu can provide some memories which can last a lifetime. The backwaters of Kuttanad is best enjoyed on a houseboat. Kuttanudu is famed for its paddy cultivation. Sitting on a houseboat as it cruises through the calm backwaters provides an opportunity to soak in the slow pace of life in the villages along the backwaters. The small temples and churches lining the area lends a great atmosphere which is supported by the friendly locals most of whom can speak English. Kuttanad is not just endless paddy fields and tranquil backwaters. The place is also known for its exquisite cuisine, especially the seafood preparations made from the fresh catch. Great photo stops and opportunity to try authentic kerala cuisine which you should give a try!!!
