Alleppey

Located in the heart of the slithering backwaters of Kerala, Alleppey or Alappuzha is often termed the “Venice of the East”. The town is among the oldest planned towns in India and is famous for its several backwater canals, beaches, paddy fields and lagoons. Alleppey is iconic for its houseboats cruises in the backwaters and attracts thousands of visitors each year. With the Laccadive Sea on its west Alleppey is blessed with an abundance of natural flora and fauna and the backwaters and the wetlands make it rich in marine life and resident and migratory avi fauna. Alleppey is also a cultural hub in Kerala since the early Sangam Era (3rd Century BC – 4th Century AD) and was a stronghold of the Chera Kingdom and had trade relations with the Greek and Romans. Alleppey was also one of the spots where St. Thomas the Apostle built the Churches. Alleppey is known for its wellness therapies, which include Ayurvedic massages and spas. Many Ayurvedic spas that have mushroomed in and around Alleppey use herbal medicinal ingredients. A day at one of these spas works like magic on your body and spirit, ridding you of tension and negative energy.

Kerala Backwaters

Have you ever gone cruising in a houseboat on the backwaters of Kerala? If you haven’t, make sure you do. This one is really a wonderful and unforgettable experience! The kerala backwaters are a chain of brackish lagoons and lakes lying parallel to the arabian sea coast (known as the malabar coast) of kerala state in southern india. The network includes five large lakes linked by canals, both manmade and natural, fed by 38 rivers, and extending virtually half the length of kerala state.

Vembanad Lake

The lake, an enchanting picnic spot and a fast developing backwater tourism destination, provides boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences that are truly exhilarating. The serene lake comes alive during Onam with a spectacular water regatta – the snake boat races. It is indeed amazing to watch oarsmen, at least a hundred in one boat, slice their way through the waters to the fast rhythm of their own full throated singing.

The Sree Krishna Temple

Constructed in typical Kerala Style, Ambalappuzha Sri Krishna Temple is a Hindu temple in Alappuzha district of Kerala. Tourists can witness the idol of this temple which is equated to Parthasarthi holding whip in the right hand and a sacred conch in the other hand. The temple is linked to the Guruvayoor Sri Krishna Temple. A beautiful painting of ten avatars of Lord Vishnu in the temple premises is the main attraction for devotees.
