Eco-friendly Houseboat Trip
(Overnight- 24hrs)

This package helps to sustain the indigenous population preserving the local habitat and through the use of traditional local products is not in any way damaging to the local environment. That's how it becomes eco friendly.

The cruise is planned halfway between alleppey and Cochin in a remote village where there are two non motorized houseboats in the whole area. The boats are equipped with the solar power for lights & fans and there is a bio-tank toilet which protects the environment. We have three members of staff on boat, two of them are punters and one is cook. Look at the plan here:

Punting Houseboat

The backwaters are best experienced while slowly punting down the through the canals in a traditional thatch-roofed houseboat, known as 'kettuvallam'. An experience you will savour for a long time.

Boats are provided with all modern conveniences and comforts to make your trip a pleasant experience. It is equipped with solar power for light & fan and also there is a bio-tank toilet for protecting the environment and are designed to facilitate a most eco-friendly functioning.

Making a cruise through the twisting and meandering water streams, through the narrow canals crossing exquisite villages of Kerala, embellished with lush green paddy fields and tall coconut palms, one can rediscover the countryside from a different angle.
