About This Sleep Aboard Boat

Kerala houseboats are one of the most wonderful things you get to experience in this lovely land. The backwaters of Kerala are among the unique attractions of the place with a string of canals spanning 1500 km and a complex of 44 rivers, lakes and lagoons. Most of the backwaters of Kerala are natural formations, while a few of the backwater canals are manmade. The canals are made for allowing a continuous traffic of travelers and goods. It should be noted that the backwaters had been the most primitive forms of cargo transportation before the onset of road or railway transport.

The houseboats are known as 'kettuvalloms' which mean boats made of wooden planks, which are tied together with coconut ropes and painted with the oil of cashew nuts on the inside. The 'kettuvalloms' are around 100 feet long and 20 feet wide. The Kerala houseboats were originally built by master craftsmen without any scientific measurements. All they used were their skills and experience.
