Description

A Backwater Trip in Alleppey Once an English-speaking guide collects you from port, this vintage voyage through the lush backwaters begins. You'll drive through the Coconut Plantation and board a traditional houseboat to begin traveling the narrow mazes of canals. See villagers fishing, swimming and engaging in their daily activities. Then enjoy a traditional lunch before seeing a waterfront temple. This festive outing is ideal for travellers interested in seeing authentic India up close and unspoiled. Dubbed the "Venice of the East", Alleppey (Alappuzha) boasts a phenomenal maze of canals, where village life unfolds. Once you board the customized vessel with your guide, you'll cruise along the waters where the annual Nehru Trophy Boat Race unfolds (Second Saturday of every August). Your captain will navigate the backwaters to see villagers farming, trading, fishing and bathing. After enjoying a tasty, traditional Indian lunch, you'll see a number of houses of worship, like the Ambalappuzha Sri Krishna and Mannarasala temple. These waterfront Hindu temples have been in use for approximately 600 years! Reserve this amazing Cochin tour for a waterfront row seat, observing traditional Indian life in its most unspoilt condition. Please Note: A tourist visa is required to debark in India. Cruise lines do not usually provide this visa, therefore, you will need to obtain one prior to your cruise.
