The extensive backwaters of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala present a beautiful kaleidoscope of the dynamic scenery. One of the best ways to enjoy your trip is to go on Trivandrum backwater tours. The traditional houseboats called "Kettuvalloms" are available for a tour on the scenic backwaters of Trivandrum. The meandering waterways lined with lush green vegetation with the blue sky as the backdrop is no less than paradise on earth.
Sail on the calm waters of the 200 square kilometer stretch of crystal
clear lakes and lagoons. The only sounds that you will hear while
sailing are the chirruping of birds and the gushing water as the
houseboat sails on the placid waters. The two main backwater areas of
Trivandrum are Veli and Thiruvallam. Both these areas are the best
places to go on houseboat rides on Trivandrum backwaters. The
Thiruvallam backwater has a temple dedicated to the founder of Kerala,
Parashuram. One can also enjoy some water sports that are provided at
these backwaters for tourists.
