Tour Variation: Rice Barge Cruise

| September 16, 2020

In a variation to the main tour, instead of
taking a shikara ride on day 11, leave the group
on day 11 and explore the Keralan backwaters
in a traditional wooden rice barge. Once used
to ferry rice and other goods across Kerala and
provide accommodation for the boatmen, the
barges have been sensitively converted into
floating homes for tourists, with a few tweaks
and essential modern conveniences added.

Relax on a full-day cruise through the
backwaters, followed by a night on board the
boat. Return to shore the next day to join the
rest of the group for an overnight stay at the
Coconut Lagoon.
