Kerala Houseboat Holidays
A cruise along palm-fringed
waterways of Kerala in a luxury
houseboat is the most enchanting
holiday experience in India today.
Large Kettuvalloms have been
converted into luxury houseboats for
these cruises. In this world of
simple pleasures, you'll skim past
ancient Chinese fishing nets, water-lillies,
lush paddy fields, coir villages,
rustic homes, temples and coconut
houseboats was called kettuvallam,
which means a boat made by tying
together pieces of wood.
Unbelievable as it may sound, not a
single nail is used in the making of
a kettuvalam. Jackwood planks are
joined together with coir rope and
then coated with black resin made
from boiled cashew nuts shells.
