Floating through the waters, suddenly, a narrow creek appeared out of nowhere. We took a short detour and followed the stream, cutting through the undergrowth of plants until it turned into a vast expanse of water. The boat staff informed us that we had reached our destination, The Vembanad Lake.
The Vembanad Lake is a charming picnic spot and also a fast developing backwater tourism destination which provides boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences that are truly exciting.
To effectively enjoy the experience of the lake we had hired a house boat which took us through across the lake. Our first glance of the Vembanad Lake was breathtaking. The endless expanse of blues of the lake water, with hints of green of the lake it made for a relaxing sight.
Passing the dainty water lilies, water hyacinths made us feel like we were in whole new world. It felt like a floating garden. As we were sailing towards Azhapuzha (or Alleppey), we passed several bunch of islands and farms separated by a web of lagoons.
One of the most mesmerizing facts about the experience at the Lake Vembanand is the silence, for hours together all we could hear were the soft sounds of the waves the boats sailing across.
