Know More About Shikara Boats in Kerala

A Shikara boat is a traditional wooden boat used in the Kerala backwaters. It is a type of canoe-like boat made of wood and is typically used for short trips, such as sightseeing tours or fun adventure trips. The Shikara boats are equipped with a guide who will accompany you on your trip.

Shikara boats are different from houseboats because they are smaller and easier to navigate. Thus they are a great way to explore the backwaters through the narrow channels and canals, which may not be easily accessible by bigger houseboats. They are also more affordable than houseboats, making them a popular choice for tourists and a great option for budget travellers. The boats also provide a great view of the surrounding scenery and landscape, making them an excellent choice for sightseeing. Shikara boats are equipped with amenities such as cushioned reclining chairs and bathrooms. It provides a unique travel experience for everyone.

My shikara ride offered stunning views of the Kerala backwaters. We passed by traditional Kerala houses and saw fishermen casting their nets into the water. The boat also stopped at a small village where we were able to interact with the locals. We had food at a local toddy shop on the way which was delicious. The boatman provided us with interesting information about the surrounding areas and pointed out various landmarks along the way. Overall, the Shikara boat ride was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Alleppey.
