Kerala House Boat


The Kerala House boat cruise is the quintessential Kerala experience of luxury and tranquility. In Malayalam it is referred to as a kettuvallam which means boat with knots ( as in the coir rope knots, made from coconut husks)

As you can see from the picture in the learn-malayalam.com logo, the Kerala House Boat is an idyllic experience, travelling along the calm backwaters, surrounded by coconut palm trees, peace and serenity.

The Kerala House boat has become one of the things that has become synonymous with Kerala, and one of the must do activities when you visit.

If you are interested in booking a House Boat in advance, to avoid being hounded by many enthusiastic salesmen when you arrive at the backwaters then a great website is Kerala House Boat Cruise

Check out these great pictures of the Kerala House Boat, or Kettu Vellam.
