Ce que vous allez faire
Backwater Exploration is most magical in the mornings from 6:00 AM onwards, or in the afternoon after 4 PM. During both these slots temple music, many varieties of birds, village life is all abundantly visible. We will be sticking to the evening slot so please plan to be at Jeff's Riverside Homestay, near Kallumada bridge at 4:00 pm We will start from Jeff's Riverside Homestay which is riverside, after a 5 minute intro into safety procedures regarding life jacket usage, and route details on a map. There are many possible routes, the one we will be pursuing is as follows. Route details: 1) Southward- We will go upstream, passing homes, apartment complexes finally reaching Chungum bridge for sunset- which is breathtaking. We will then head back the way we came downstream. This whole trip can take anywhere between 1.5 hours & 2.5 hours. *Please do keep in mind that the first leg of this journey is upstream, we will be rowing against the current, which can be mild or strong depending on prior rains. The return journey will require little effort as we will be going with the flow of current.
I grew up in the backwaters and canals of Kerala - "God's Own Country". Raised on a daily dose of shell, towel & rod fishing, navigating country boats and swimming unexplored & less frequented river and canal routes, I've always been tuned into the the magic of the backwater experience. After a decade in the U.S. which included a combination of hosting on Airbnb and pursuing outdoor adventures, I returned to India with a vision of offering travelers the untouched magical worlds in my hometown and area. My two primarily points of focus when offering such experiences is safety & magic.
