We had awesome experience during shikara ride in Punnamada lake. Although initially we felt it was overpriced (₹2200 for 90 minutes) but after finishing the ride we were very happy with the experience. The beauty of Kerala backwaters can only be enjoyable by visiting in person. Still I am attaching some photos. It is truly God’s own country.

This is just the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Kerala. You can just sit back on your ricebarge, relax and let the stress and strain just drift away. Yhe only sounds you will hear are the gentle lapping of the water against your ricebarge and the calls of the many different species of birds. This area has to be a bird-watcher's paradise.

Chaandhini Lake view is a very small property facing the Lake - Punnamada Boat Race starting point. Chaandhini provides basic facilities and it has few dedicated staff's. The Hotel owner is coming with another large property adjacent to Chaandhini with more facilities.

June consider as the off season for houseboat,this is the perfect time experience houseboat especially for Indian tourists and budget Travelers.
Different kind of travel packages available,in which cheapest is provided by KTDC boat service for sight seeing.Houseboat rent is pretty much depends on the size or capacity and amenities provided by the the boat owners.
For couples and bachelor groups , sight seeing with night stay is advisable.This trip starts at morning 11 from punnamada starting point,which is located near ksrtc stand.This trip include Welcome drink ,lunch with karimeen(pearl spot) fry , evening tea and snacks, dinner and next morning breakfast.
If you get better price from one boat service provider which means they are managing that in your menu.
Mostly houseboat s have pitstops along the way in toddy shop and few shops which located on the shores, whatever you purchase from those shops houseboat chef will cook it for you,but price will be bit steep.
During this time of the year a 3 bedroom boat will cost around 13k for the afro mentioned trip.
Other sightseeing options will cost. Around 600per person.
After 5 o clock all the houseboat anchor BCOS of government orders.Litterly you are sleeping in banks of river floating on the lake.
Apparently houseboat number increased over the years,@peek season during snake boat race time, punnamada is crowded than the traffic in India.

Spent three nights cruising on the lake and in the backwaters on the Houseboat in January. The boat was spacious with an upper viewing deck and air con in the bedroom. We were well looked after by the crew of three including the chef. As we got to know them, they went out of their way to find places of interest to visit including a colourful temple festival.

It's also known as vembanad lake in kottayam. Famous for Nehru trophy boat race. It's nice to see in the tourism seasons. Lake will be filled with house boats.

Kuttanadu is a region covering the Alappuzha, Pathanamthitta and Kottayam Districts, well known for its vast paddy fields and geographical peculiarities. The region has the lowest altitude in India, and is one of the few places in the world where farming is carried around 4 to 10 feet (1.2 to 3.0 m) below sea level. Kuttanadu is historically important in the ancient history of South India and is the major rice producer in the state.

I went to this Glorious Lake on 03rd March 2016, this is the place where Nehru boat race will be conducted every year during Onam festival in the month of August-September, Snake boat is a very long boat 110' and it's one of the most important activity in Alappuzha.

Cruising in the house boat is an experience of our lifetime which everyone should experience at least once, the views throughout the journey along the both sides as well as in the waterbody is absolutely stunning, please take your best camera to catch the action live, I took some fabulous photos and videos to cherish.

Bon Voyage !!!
Happy journey...
Enjoy !!!
