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.
