This house boat is known as 'Kettuvallom', the traditional rice barge, with its sturdy build and stately carriage. The boat hulls are made from seasoned 'Anjili' (Jackfruit) logs, that have a natural gentle curvature. Keels are flat, because the rivers here can get mighty shallow at times, and also to allow the boat to be easily punted. (They come with a quiet outboard motor too, so the boatman can get some rest). Your boat moves towards the mouth of the Kavanar river at a scorching 6 miles an hour. It would be a fight to keep your eyelids from closing, except that a refreshingly soft breeze angles in westerly, off the Vembanad lake. It carries the cries of distant darter birds, surprisingly loud over the waters.Overnight stay at the resort.
