Vembanad Lake and HouseBoat

For the second day my trip continues in Kerala to Houseboat in Vembanad Lake. Vembanad lake is one of the longest lake in India and largest lake in Kerala. The lake is bordered by three districts, Alappuzha, Kottayam and Ernakulam. The lake is situated at sea level but separated sea by a island. Vembanad lake is connected by many canals to other lakes in the state. But the most popular location on the shores of the lake is Kumarakom a very  famous tourist destination in Kerala. the very beautiful Bird sanctuary is located on the east coast of the lake, a must visit place but early in the morning
                                                                 Vembanad lake view from Hotel
                                                                              
One more view of Vembanad lake
Next day morning at 7:30 A.M.  after our breakfast with delicious Kerala Appams and estue( I couldn't take pictures of the breakfast because we are already lat to reach the houseboat:(... ) a,d we headed to house boat. We stayed in the house boat for one day and one night. That was a very wonderful experience and we ( me, my sister and kids ) were so exited. So let's see the houseboat.

By the time we reached the final spot the weather turned cloudy and it started pouring. The house boat people take a halt in one place and we stayed in the boat for over night. Next day morning by 9:30 we came back to the hotel....
That was a wonderful trip we enjoyed it every movement. Will comeback with one more trip tomorrow .....

We were planning a boathouse trip this summer but couldn't do it. Your virtual trip is tempting me. That boathouse looks really good.
