While the backwaters are most often explored by boat, you will clamber into a tuk tuk for a private tour through the countryside. The Kumarakom backstreets will reveal the local villages and life along the water from a different perspective.
As you bump along the dirt tracks through the thick green of the jungle, the tuktuk will weave between tall palm trees. You’ll be able to feel the breeze of the air and watch the birds frolic in the canopies. Local life will unfold around you and you’ll come to appreciate what it’s like to live amongst Kerala’s famous backwaters.
