The Amazing Kerala Backwaters

A travel blog entry by jeffsadventures

This is a top pick!

The Kerala Backwaters are an amazing aqua-landscape of forty four rivers and interconnecting canals and inlets that drain into the Arabian Sea. The resulting labyrinth of water channels and rice paddies provides 900 km (558 miles!) of navigable waterway that connects the towns and villages scattered about coastal Kerala state.
