The backwaters in Kerala is a network of 1500kms of canals, both man made and natural, 38 rivers and 5 big lakes extending from one end of Kerala to the other. Before trucks became popular, the main cargo transportation was done through the backwaters by ‘Kettuvalloms’. Kettuvalloms means ‘stitched boat’. Kettuvalloms or house boats (riceboats) are country boats that were used in the early days for the transport of goods from the isolated interior villages to the towns. With the advent of roads, bridges and the ferry services, the Kettuvalloms gradually went off the scene. Now these Kettuvalloms are back again as amajor tourist attraction. Arideona Kettuvalloms is a fabulous way to explore the fascinating beauty of the backwaters.

Today things are a bit more modern, although a lot of effort has been made to keep the traditional touch there. Today’s house boats are converted ‘Kettuvalloms’. They are designed for comfortable cruise and overnight stay. Dining on board is an experience in itsself. Though based on the tradition of fish and vegetables, in keeping with the demands of a cosmopolitan clientele, the cuisine served aboard our house boats features afar more sophisticated menu than a Kettuvalloms. The ethnic meals are prepared on board by a personal cook and fish delicacies like white prawns, pearl spotted fish, crabs and mussels are the specialties.

Once on the boat, you will cruise along the backwaters for a couple of hours. Pass small villages and see how the local people live.

The most important feature of the palace is the astonishing murals that adorn some of the palace rooms,depicting scenes from the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranic legends connected with Shiva, Vishnu, Krishna, Kumara and Durga.

kkr-img-2Also pay a visit to the amazing Chinese fishing nets operating on principles of physics- advanced for their times.

Among one of the most amazing natural formations are the Belum Caves that are the longest natural caves on the plains of India. Formed by the movement of water on black limestone over several million years, these caves have several paths that have been made accessible to tourists. While the locals have been aware of these caves for centuries, they were brought into prominence after they were mapped extensively by the German speleologist Mr H Daniel Gebauer in the 1980s. Relics, dating back to 4500 BCE have been found in these caves by the Archaeological Department and the caves were also used by ancient Buddhist and Jain monks. Intricate patterns found on the rocks form the various natural sculptures. There are three dramatic sinkholes in the caves and at the lowest point of the caves flows a natural stream called Patalganga. The main meditation hall that is believed to have been used by saints and monks also contains a natural rock bed.
