Keralan Backwaters - 3 days

FROM USD $669

A peaceful and rustic 3 day sojourn on the mellow backwaters of Kerala. Setting off from Alleppey (Alappuzha), close to Kochi, you'll sail through the lush backwaters aboard a rice boat.

Day 1: Kochi
Welcome to India and the start of your holiday! Arrive Kochi airport, where you will be met by a representative from On The Go. Drive for approximately 2 hours to Allepey and board a private rice-boat for a journey through the backwaters in and around Allepey. Watch as our crew propel the boat through the water using tall bamboo poles!

The rice-boat is a simply furnished craft and consists of a thatched covered lounge/dining area, sleeping accommodation (with mosquito net) and a bathroom with a WC and washbasin. In the evening the boat is lit by hurricane lamps. Thatched awning on both sides of the boat allows the breeze and views to flow in. There is a small service area at the rear of the craft where the cook prepares simple meals using as many fresh provisions as can be plucked, caught or bought in the backwaters. A distance of some 20 kms will be covered, during which time the boat will glide past colourful local villages. Overnight - Rice boat (L, D)
Spend the day at leisure on the rice- boat. Opt for a swim, soak up the sunshine, enjoy the scenic beauty of colourful villages and have a sumptuous meal on banana leaves. In the evening, witness sunset through coconut palms. Enjoy dinner under a million stars. Sleep and dream with the pleasant roll of the backwater. Overnight - Rice boat (B, L, D)
