Day 1: Alleppey

Meet and get greeted by your tour leader at Fort Cochin and get transferred to the The Venice of the East–Alleppey. Enroute visit coir factory to learn how coir is processed. Coir or coconut fibre, is a natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut and used in products .During this time, micro-organisms break down the plant tissues surrounding the fibres to loosen them — a process known as retting. Visit Marari Beach where life still goes on much as it did a hundred years ago, with the men going out to sea each day to earn a living bringing in the daily catch. Interact with the fishermen to learn more about their livelihood. Proceed your journey to Alleppey and check-into the floating houseboat. The coconut trees swaying in the cool, sea breeze, the green stretches of paddy fields on either sides, the flocks of ducks swimming about lazily, and the long necks of cormorants visible out of the surface of water. No matter how much one tries to describe it, no words can ever truly capture the true beauty of backwaters of Alleppey.
