Alleppey Boathouse

Alleppey boathouses are huge, slow-moving boats in the exotic backwaters, used mainly for leisure tours. In olden days, they were known as ‘Kettuvallams’. Kettuvallam is a Malayalam word for a boathouse. It is a combination of two words -‘Kettu’ means ‘tied with ropes’ and ‘vallam’ means a boat. In olden days, they were mainly used to carry rice and spices between various ports in Kerala. At that time, it was the most convenient form of transportation. When the lorry transportation became popular, ‘Kettuvallams’ were made into houseboats. Since then, the popularity of houseboats increased steadily and evolved as one of the major tourist attractions in Kerala. Travellers and tourists from various parts of the world flock in great number to Alleppey today to enjoy backwater cruise.
