As Experienced India Travelers, we can honestly say: This is one of our greatest experiences on our journey through India.
The paddling of the kayaks, visiting the families on the shores, seeing the life on and on the side of the backwaters has been just great!
The backwaters are typical to Kerala and forms a very large area under water. A string of lakes, lagoons, rivers, canals & rivulets make up the backwaters which stretch from Trivandrum (the capital city) to Kannur, almost 600 Kms to the North! A very varied and typical lifestyle has evolved along the banks of the backwaters over the centuries. It would indeed be a great expedition to see this life for yourselves.... on KAYAKS !!
