PostSubject: Kerala - The Land of Backwaters   Wed Jul 11, 2007 2:49 am

A Kerala Tourism offers all that a tourist can possibly ask for. The Southernmost district of the state, Thiruvananthapuram is bounded by wooded highlands of the Western Ghats on the east and northeast and the Arabian sea on the west. A long Shoreline with secluded internationally renowned beaches, historic monuments, backwater stretches and a rich cultural heritage give this district some of the most enchanting picnic spots.
The main backwater areas of Thiruvananthapuram are Thiruvallam, Veli Tourist village, Akkulam Boat Club. Thiruvallam is a serene backwater stretch; en route to Kovalam is famous for its canoe rides. Thiruvallam is the meeting point of two rivers - Killi and Karamana. A temple dedicated to Parashurama, the legendry founder of Kerala, is located here.
The Veli Tourist Village is sandwiched between the Veli lagoon and the Arabian Sea. The lagoon here is separated from the sea by a narrow sand bar. Facilities at the village include water sports in the lagoon and an 18-acre waterfront park with a floating bridge that connects the village to the beach. 8 kilometers from Thiruvananthapuram is the Akkulam Boat Club. This is a very popular picnic spot with boating facilities on the lake and a children's park with a swimming pool.
