Kayaking along the backwaters of Allepey, India

In 2016 Koru Kayaking went to discover India by kayak and booked on a guided kayak tour with Kerela Kayaking as recommended in the Lonely Planet.

The back waters of Kerela are well known with house boats, once rice boats, cruising along the canals as house boats, former rice boats glide by.

Dropped off in the heart of the backwaters by narrowboat leaving the numerous housebaots behind on the larger canals.

We are taken by our guide alonf the smaller canals able to encouter the locals who live on the canals, some washing clothes and collecting water, whilst others bath in the water.  Our guide was informative and really smartly dressed for kayaking!

The backwaters are canals around the padi fields carved out by the British for ease of transport of the rice and irrigation. According to our guide, they areonly cleaned out every 3 months and so lots of greenery builds up.

Rejoining the narrowboat were taken to a local cafe and were served up a delicious Dali on banana leaves – no waste here!

Kayaking in along the backwaters in India was a truely amazing experience and one not to be missed!
