Venice of the East 😍
Alleppey Backwaters is famous for its large network of inland canals. The freshwater from the mountain runs down into the canals which is used in the rice paddies, it then heads towards a lake and then eventually into the ocean.
If you’re serious about saving the planet, but don’t know where to start, then start by making a small difference on your travels – chose eco-friendly tours such as the tours with @oscar_cruise.
There are hundreds maybe even thousands of engine powered houseboats on the backwaters spewing into the waters and polluting it. When all you really need is a simple canoe to take you down the water ways.
The added benefit to these canoes is that you get to go down all of the little canals that the big houseboats can’t and see the day to day lives of the locals 💚
