Kerala Boat Race
“A land filled with tranquility and calm,
Backwater, beaches and trees of palm,
With weather, delightfully soothing,
And drizzles, so refreshing
God’s own country, is truly a nature’s blessing”
About Kerala: Emphasizing on rich culture and blissful backwaters, a journey across the green landscapes and tea plantations of Kerala is a heavenly retreat for all the nature lovers. Kerala indeed is a destination wishlisted by many travelers, it’s time to tick it off with Travel Trikon. Let’s pack our bags and bud adieus to the city chaos for reaching out to the hills, backwaters, beaches and waterfalls.
About Onam Boat Festival: The Alleppey boat festival is the oldest river boat fiesta in Kerala. The snake boats move in pairs to the rhythm of full-throated singing and shouting watched by an exciting crowd. This unique Alappuzha boat race spectacle still retains its vibrant village festival spirit.
Also, known as Alappuzha, is the tranquil destination where the world famous backwaters of Kerala lies. Very popularly called as the “Venice of the east”, Alley is best described as a canvas of what heaven must look like on a tranquil day. Cruising at the backwaters and observing the wildlife a little closely is what you get to do at Alleppey.
Remember the shoot location, Kashmir Main Tu Kanyakumari – Chennai Express song shoot location where Deepika and SRK went hand in hand dancing amidst the tea gardens? Yeah, that’s the heavenly destination where you’ll witness several shades of green in a wide stretch of hills and plateaus. Sprawling tea plantations, picture-book towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. Don’t forget to buy your favorite flavored tea from Munnar.
