They are a reworked model of Kettuvallams (in the Malayalam language, Kettu means tied with ropes, and vallam means boat), which, in earlier times, were used to carry rice and spices from Kuttanad to the Kochi port. Kerala houseboats were considered a convenient means of transportation. Such a houseboat is about 60 to 70 feet (18 to 21 m) long and about 15 feet (4.6 m) wide at the middle. The hull is made of wooden planks that are held together by ropes of coconut fiber; the natural wood is Anjili. The roof is made of bamboo poles and palm leaves. The exterior of the boat is painted with protective coats of cashew nut oil.
Finish your trip with some shopping of Kerala chips and some typical coir products of the region
