Kerala Government Boat cruising along backwaters

A KSWTC Boat Cruises Along the Backwaters at Dusk

As dusk falls after the sun had set, a ferry service boat of the Kerala State Water Transportation Corporation (KSWTC) cruises along a picturesque backwater channel near Kavalam in Alappuzha district, Kerala. KSWTC is the poor brother of the KSRTC (which is not rich in any way though) and caters to the local populace living around the waterways of Kuttanad, the mind-blowingly beautiful region of the famous backwaters of Kerala, for whom boats and waterways are the primary means of transport and not roads. Not as glamorous as houseboats but these dilapidated boats are the cheapest way of enjoying the backwaters of Kuttanad. You can board these from Alappuzha to Changanasserry and back.
