Alappuzha Backwaters

Kuttanad, called the rice bowl of Kerala, because of her wealth of paddy crops is at the very heart of the backwaters. The scenic countryside of Kuttanad with its shimmering waterways also has a rich crop of bananas. Yams and cassava which accompany the rice bowl as "side dishes". This is one of the places in the world where farming is done below sea level. Inland waterways which flow above land level is an amazing feature of this unique land.


This little island on the backwaters is a favorite haunt of hundreds of rare migratory birds from different parts of the world. Pathiramanal island (14 km from Alappuzha) is accessible only by boat from Muhamma/Thannermukkom/Kumarakom.
