The Kuttanad community experience

Go from purity or serenity on a four to six hours trip right into the heart of the backwaters.
Discover the village life and join hands with the community.

We introduce you to Mathai, the country boat person.
He will take you along the narrow backwater canals of Pulincunnu, describing plants, trees and people on his way.
You reach the home of Krishna Kumari, an energetic grandmother. She will cook specialties like rice puttu or appam, served with chicken or duck curry on a banana leaf. Using ingredients from her kitchen garden she will show you the ways of using different masala.
Get the feel of the 100 year old house partly made of wood, the bronze casted utensils and enjoy the taste of the home made food.
After lunch you walk to the coconut farm and see the art of toddy tapping high up on the coconut trees. You are welcome to taste some fresh toddy… the afternoon.
Discover sustainable methods of duck and fish farming and the simple joys of village life.
After this water world village experience we drive you back to purity or serenity.
