Backwaters in Kozhikode, Kozhikode Overview

Located on the northern side of the scenic state of Kerala, Kozhikode has always been a popular destination for its backwaters. These backwaters are a distinctive feature of this area and have been generously blessed with abundant natural beauty, dense greenery and exotic flora and fauna. The palm-fringed rivulets, lakes and canals of Kozhikode are decked with engaging beauty. The calm of these undisturbed waters is contagious and instils within you a feeling of tranquil peace and serenity. 

Unlike most rivers that flow towards the direction of the seas and oceans, backwaters are a part of the river that has little or no current. So, boating in the backwaters allows you to move against the natural current! Here at Kozhikode, Canoli River and Kallai River are blessed with these wondrous backwater streams, and they provide a great opportunity to explore the scenic landscapes of this town.

Among all the other backwaters in Kerala, Kozhikode one is perhaps the most laid-back one. Simple lifestyle of the people of Calicut will win your heart over. The delicious seafood and the rhythm of the backwaters is something similar to therapy. The backwaters of Kozhikode are very simple and beautiful, and it deserves a visit. It is easily one of the prime attractions of Kerala. Tiny ripples made by the fishes that come up to kiss the air and birds chirping and tweeting in playful harmony; experiencing the light draft of the backwaters is the perfect getaway to enjoy some quality time with friends, family and your self.
