Adventures in Kerala

Being climatically and geographically unique, Kerala is home to many adventure spots that are absent from other parts of India. Kerala's backwaters are the most popular tourist attraction of the state and with its forty-one tranquil rivers, the backwaters stretch to almost one thousand nine hundred kilometers. These large backwaters provide an ideal boating or sightseeing adventure as well as being a hub for fishing enthusiasts.

Alappuzha, one of the major centers for backwater boat trips is also known as 'The Venice of the East'.  Kerala is a coastal state. Thus its beaches offer the opportunity for a number of water sports like water skiing, boat racing etc to send one’s blood racing as well as other fun activities like building a sand castle or playing beach sports like volleyball and football.  

Kayaking is also a popular sport among tourists in Kerala. Its stunning mountains are the ideal backdrop for bungee jumping and Para gliding. There are a host of other outdoor activities, which include bird watching, canoeing, hiking and camping for people who are slightly more subdued.

The state is famous for exotic kettuvalloms (houseboats), boat racing, motorboat and water sport activities. The magnificent houseboats driven by local oarsmen are marvelously equipped with a lavish living room, bedroom with attached baths and a heightened deck for viewing the panorama of Kerala’s beauty.
