    Icon14 The Beautiful Nature of Kerala

    The inflow of tourists to Kerala has been increasing tremendously for the last few years because of the word of mouth publicity of the travelers who had experienced the Kerala Tour. Tourists to the State have repeatedly visited Kerala as they fall in love with the beautiful nature and culture of this land.

    An inevitable component of a Kerala Tour is a cruise through its serene backwaters. The state’s palm-fringed backwaters are inland lakes connected by a network of canals. With 41 west-flowing rivers, the backwaters stretch to almost 1900 kilometers. The backwater routes date back over the centuries and have long been used for all transportation needs – in particular for the transport and trade of coconut, rubber, rice and spices. Today, these waterways link remote villages and islands to the mainland and nerve centers of the coastal area.

    The largest backwater stretch is the Vembanad Lake, which opens out into the sea at the Kochi port and flows through the districts of Alappuzha, Kottayam and Kochi. The Ashtamudi Lake has eight arms covering a major portion of Kollam district in the south and is the second largest lake in the State.

    Whether by kettuvellams (houseboats) or a simple vallom, the experience of gliding through the backwaters is an experience that is undeniably unforgettable.

    I've heard a bit about Kerala - supposedly the most successful 'communist' regime in the world. That's to say, despite poverty comparatively worse to even the rest of India, they actually have a longer life-expectancy, better education, more gender equality etc. etc...
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
    - Wilkins Micawber
