The best place in the world for backwater cruises and boat races.
It is from here that the backwater cruises take off through a network
of canals, on the shores of which, there are villages against the
backdrop of thousands of coconut trees. The landscape is fantastic,
befitting its official dub of being 'God's own country'. There are
the fantastic boat races, with 30 metre-long snake-shaped boats,
and hundreds of oarsmen singing loudly as they tug at the oars,
competing for the highest prize in these parts. If the boat races
are pure adrenalin, the backwater cruises are no less.
