Backwaters local trip

Information

City Allepey
Country India
Address Boat Jetty Rd
Any traveler that gets to Kerala knows he cannot leave without having made a journey through the backwaters. As you arrive, you will see dozens of locals selling you trips and routes, but you have to think one thing here and is that these channels are neither private nor are deserted, so every day there are several ferries that take you from one end to another at a derisory price.

We took the ferry in Alleppey city and went to Kottayam with it, we spent a total of 3 hours and a half on the ferry crossing canals of the Backwaters, for the price of 20 rupees (~ 0.25 €).

If your idea is to continue your journey in Kerala to the south, you can also catch the ferry line leading to Kollam, that I was told lasts about 10 hours but definitely the views are a thousand times better than if you do it with conventional bus.
