Country Crafts in Backwater
Alappuzha, a southern state in Kerala, is the land of lakes, lagoons and backwaters. Kuttanad is a scenic backwater location in the district. Here country crafts are the major travel option for the local population.
Almost all families have a small boat to meet their daily travel needs. As you can see in this video people of all age ply these waterways offering a different sight to the outsider. Every year a large number of tourists visit Alappuzha for backwater cruises. Houseboats with every modern amenity are also available here.
