   The Backwaters of Kerala is unique and is found nowhere else in the world. Backwaters are a network of lakes, canals and estuaries and deltas of forty-four rivers that drain into the Arabian Sea. The backwaters of Kerala are a self supporting eco-system teeming with life. The most exciting aspect of Kuttanadu is the Kettuvallam (traditional Houseboat) which has become the most popular tourism product in India today.

A cruise in the backwater is truly invigorating amidst the light rain and the endless backwater. A ride not to be missed.

We hired a car with driver called "Satheesh" for 5 days. From Cochin to Munnar to Parambikulum then Coimbatore. He was extremely professional and the trip went very smoothly. I would definately recommend him.

Our group was booked relatively last minute, and composed of 7 people. From the moment the owner's driver picked us up on the first day, we had great service and provided with a great experience.
