Photo Journey Through The Green And Blue Kerala Backwaters

Written by 

Kerala is literally a paradise set in green! And Kerala backwaters is one of its unique attractions. National Geographic Traveler has tagged the Kerala backwaters as one of the top 50 Must-Visit Tourist Destinations in the World.

What Are The Kerala Backwaters?

The Kerala backwaters consist of a chain of brackish (a mix of saltwater and fresh) lagoons and lakes lying almost parallel to the western coast of the state. These backwaters stretch from one end of Kerala to the other. You can enjoy the vivid yet varied glimpses of Kerala culture while experiencing its pristine backwaters. Come with me as I take you on a photo journey exploring the Kerala backwaters:

WOW, fantastic pics Sunu! I enjoyed the "photo journey" but now I want to take a real journey down those waterways in real life.

Looks like another experience to add to the bucket list (whew, that thing is getting long LOL)

Thanks for sharing!
