Popularly known as the Venice of the east, Alleppey or Allapuzha is famous for its serene backwaters and their exceptionally scenic setting. Cruising on houseboats in Alleppey is the latest and probably the best addition to the list of ways you can enjoy the mesmerizing natural beauty of this quaint little town. Alleppey is gifted with a unique crisscrossing network of canals that runs throughout the town which allows you to access and explore the entire area while you're relaxing on your houseboat.
These 120-foot-long abodes of luxury glide along the placid backwaters of Alleppey and provide you with a stunning view of endless paddy fields and swaying coconut trees as they surround you on all sides and lean over the waters as if they're admiring their own reflection. The proximity of the lakes in this town and the dense greenery creates a perfect ambience for relaxing over a languorous cup of hot coffee.
The houseboat will always be manned by at least 3 people- a cook, a guide and an oarsman. Delicious meals are provided on the houseboats by the in-house cook which are a local favourite. The guide keeps you posted of all the important landmarks you pass and the oarsman makes sure you have a wonderful time cruising along the calm backwaters.
