This divine slice of land with its pristine waters, lush green paddy fields and picture book perfect landscape is an incredible choice as a green escapade. The 'Explore Kuttanad Cruise' circuit with its enchanting visuals and dramatic backdrops is sure to leave you in awe. The tour begins from Kodimatha Boat Jetty.
Erected in 1813 AD by Col. Munroe, the British Resident of Travancore, the Munroe Light House in Pallom is an architectural marvel, one of the earliest forms of GPS. This unique structure still stands intact facing the tranquil backwaters in the midst of a vast expanse of verdant paddy fields and coconut palms.
Kuttanad, the rice bowl of Kerala, is swathed in vast stretches of verdant paddy fields and is noted for its farming below sea level (about 4 to 10 feet). The Q, S, T and R Blocks are wonders of the indigenous agricultural engineering of Kerala comparable to the dikes of Holland. Vast expanse of lands reclaimed from backwaters and protected by dikes is used to cultivate paddy below sea level. The R Block spreads across 850 acres and is the largest reclaimed area. A cruise along this canal is an enchanting experience.
