Keralan backwaters – some photos

One thing any visitor to Kerala must do is got for a trip down the backwaters. The backwaters are a chain of interconnected lagoons, lakes, canals and rivers that snake through nearly half of Kerala. Backwaters boat rides can be a few hours, overnight on a houseboat, or even a few days.

The scenery is stunning and the glimpse into village life is fascinating. I had a day long trip on a human powered boat (much quieter than boats with engines) it was one of the most relaxing ways I’ve ever spent a day – a natural form of Valium.
