The Kerala backwaters are a series of brackish lagoons and lakes extending for about 150km in the alluvial plane between the Malabar coast and the Ghats mountains. The waterways linking the lagoons and lakes are partly natural and partly man-made. The lagoons are fed by a network of perennial rivers. Tourists can access the backwaters on houseboats providing accomodation and can experience Keralan village life and watch the landscape with its paddy fields and coconut palms.
