A ride on the houseboat is the perfect way to make your way through the small village hamlets, the green regions, coconut enclosed banks of these backwaters. One can even head for a houseboat trip on the backwaters of Valiyaparamba. A range of cruises is offered to the tourists by Bekal Boat stay organizers.
