Houseboat cruises in India bestow immense pleasure to holidaymakers. Hopping on a houseboat and experiencing the most vivid facets of Mother Nature is a dream of many. That’s why travellers plan holidays to India from all over the world to navigate through emerald backwaters, on a relaxed houseboat.
World renowned for its pristine ambience, emerald expanses of flora, shimmering rivers and spectacular looking beaches - Kerala is truly titled as ‘The God’s Own Country’. This South Indian state takes you on a voyage where you get intimate with nature. Houseboats are popular with the name of Kettuvallams in Kerala. They were first built in South-western India in around 3,000 B.C.E to transport merchandise. With time, they became a popular attraction for holidaymakers seeking the most beautiful sights of this gorgeous state. Today, most of the luxurious houseboat cruises in Kerala are well equipped with modern day facilities and amenities to make the stay of the guests pleasurable. With contemporary furnishings, bamboo flooring, beautiful ceilings and well adorned rooms, these houseboats look no less than a five star hotel. Onboard chefs are also available to offer a wholesome experience to the guests as they relish the sights of spectacular backwaters, historic churches and never-ending green expanses. Alleppey, Cochin and Kumarakom are perfect backwater destinations in Kerala to pamper your senses with a houseboat cruise.
Apart from Kerala, Goa also hosts a number of houseboat cruises. Goan House Boats mirror the simple lifestyle of tiny gem. As you navigate through the backwaters, you explore rustic Goan villages, fishermen wearing traditional attires, swinging palm trees and never ending sea mingling with the sky at the horizon.
State of Jammu & Kashmir is also well known for beautifully adorned houseboats; however, these mostly remain stationary, moored by the riverbanks. Locally known as shikara, houseboats here stay tied up at the periphery of Dal Lake and Nigeen Lake in Srinagar. Shikara flaunts flamboyant cultures of the state, which is known as the Paradise on Earth. Many honeymooners love to spend some moments of peace in these floating shikaras to weave some beautiful memories of togetherness.
