House Boats

Cruise through best backwaters of India in a House Boat from Skyway

Not all holidays are land based packages. House boat allows a traveller to experience a novel method to explore a holiday. House boats are predominantly found in Kashmir and Kerala. The house boat is essentially a house floating on water. A stay in a house boat is a unique experience as a traveller spends time in the midst of water bodies close to nature!

Traditionally, the houseboat was called kettuvallom, which means a boat made by tying together pieces of wood. Incredible may sound, not a single nail is used in the making of a kettuvallom.

Jack wood planks are joined together with coir rope and then coated with black resin made from boiled cashew nut shells. Today, these giant 80 foot long crafts have been adapted into luxuriously furnished houseboats. A kettuvallom usually has one, two or three bath attached bedrooms, an open lounge, deck, kitchenette and a crew comprising oarsmen, a cook and guide.
