29 Dec 2018: Kollam – Board Houseboat and cruise through Ashtamudi lake Meals: L, D

Arrive at Kollam your own and board your houseboat by noon @1200 Hrs. Take our word for this, your backwaters cruise will very likely become one of your most treasured travel memories. The incredible lushness of the vegetation around the fresh water canals, rivulets and lakes, the beauty of the water bodies themselves and the abundance of coconut trees and other exotic plants create a subtropical environment not found elsewhere on this planet. When you combine this with the opportunity to be part of a unique way of life that hasn’t changed much for a few centuries, it results in most visitors’ second highest rated experience in India (after the Taj Mahal). Relax and have a great time until the next morning as you cruise the amazing backwaters. The cook and other staff make sure that all your needs are taken care of, while serving you with delicious Kerala cuisine. You have the option of taking shore excursions at one of the tiny rural communities as you cruise by – the locals are very friendly and communicative. The Xandari Riverscapes experience is incomplete without an authentic and refreshing meal of local cuisine. With the excursion commencing at noon, one can begin the journey with a delectable lunch cooked on board. Just when the stars start to appear in the sky, it’s time for another round of delicious and authentic local feast – otherwise known as dinner.
