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.
