Part VI: South India Temple and Spice Tour: Alleppy Tour
Nothing is more rejuvenating than spending time amidst gorgeous green surroundings in the lap of nature. Here we were at one of the most enchanting tourist destinations called Alleppy. It is a beautiful town in Kerala which was founded by Raja Kesavadasan in the year 1762. It is well know for its mesmerizing backwaters, arresting beaches, lush green paddy fields, houseboats and snake boat race. It is affectionately dubbed as the ‘Venice of the East’.
We reached Alleppy in the early morning and while walking through this town I felt that a feeling of being in rhythm with nature was flowing into me just like sunshine soaks trees into its life-giving rays. It was a wonderful feeling. No wonder it is a perfect place for holidays. I had heard a lot about the beach and backwaters of Alleppy from my friends. Now was the time to experience it for real.
After a little refreshment we embarked on Alleppy backwater tour. Cruising through the backwaters amidst gripping green surroundings was a great experience. We even sighted some colorful birds from close quarters. Lush greenery, swaying palm trees and salubrious climate, everything about Alleppy was mesmerizing. The view of the paddy fields was very soothing to the eyes. We were cruising in the houseboat of Kerala which is locally called Kettuvallam. It is also a perfect option for accommodation.
We gorged on South Indian dishes in our lunch on the backwater cruise tour. After the backwater cruise we took a short nap and then got ready for exploring the charm of the Alleppy beach. We reached the beach which is truly mesmerizing to the hilt. The lashing waves, swaying palm trees, limitless sky, and sun rays kissing the sand are the enchanting features of Alleppy beach. We strolled through the beach soaking in every bit of its beauty. We even went to the lighthouse on the beach which offers breathtaking views of the picturesque surroundings. As the day was drawing to a close the golden rays of sun were making the sea glitter like gold and the fluttering birds were flying high in the sky. It was a sight to behold.http://blog.capertravelindia.com/part-vi-south-india-temple-and-spice-tour-alleppy-tour.htmlSouth India ToursAlleppy backwater tour,Alleppy beach,Alleppy Tour,Alleppy Tourism,backwater cruise,houseboat of Kerala,South India Spice Tour,South India Temple Tour,south India tour,South india tourism,South Indian dishes
