Search results for: Kerala Map - Alappuzha

Alappuzha city built during the 9th century on the edge of the great Ashtamudi lake. Surrounded by cashew and coconut groves, Quilon is the gateway to the spectacular backwaters of Kerala. A boat trip to Alleppey through these placid stretches of water filled with lotus and lilies and the water-birds flapping their wings as though to greet you is an out of the world experience. You can have a picnic at the huge lighthouse at Thanaserri, 3 km away too. The cantilevered Chinese fishing nets used in the waterways add the right touch of color to the scerinity of this place.
