Alleppey (Alappuzha)

House Boat, Alleppey Holidays TripAlleppey, now named Alappuzha, in Kerala is second town in India after the Udaipur city (Rajasthan) that is called the city of lakes and ‘Venice of the East’. The travelers fondly acknowledge the town’s claim to be called so, due to its immense natural aqua tourism beauty complemented with the Arabian sea on the west and a vast network of lakes, lagoons and fresh water rivers criss crossing it. The houseboat holidays, beaches, marine products and coir industry are another high point of Alleppey.

The rustle of palm trees is the only sound heard in the otherwise quiet backwaters of Alleppey. But the town becomes most vibrant during its Boat races calander: Alappuzha Nehru Trophy Boat Race at Punnamada (2nd Saturday of August) Alappuzha Tourism Boat Race (9th January) Pulinkunnu Rajiv Gandhi Boat Race (last Saturday of August) Champakulam Moolam Boat Race (Moolam day of Midhunam - July) Payippad Jalotsavam (4th Onam day - August/September) Neerettupuram Boat Race (Onam - August/September).

A singular characteristic of this land is the region called Kuttanad. The rice bowl of Kerala, Kuttanad is perhaps the only place in the world where farming is done below sea level.

Alleppey, 65 kms, one and a half hour drive from Kochi along the national highway, close and parallel to the Arabian sea , is served by frequent ferries from other backwater neighbourhoods. It is also the gateway to the lovely church town of Kottayam and to Aranmula, also famous for its historic Aranmula Snake Boat Race.

A little backwaters island in the proximity called Pathiramanal is a favorite haunt of hundreds of rare migratory birds from different parts of the world. The island is accessible only by boat.
