Meet your guide with cycles at Kainakary. Start cycling the backroads in the Kuttanad region, a part of Alleppey famous for its backwaters and paddy fields. The region has the lowest altitude in India, and is one of the few places in the world where farming is carried around 1.2 to 3.0 metres below sea level. Kuttanadu is historically important in the ancient history of South India and is the major rice producer in the state. Travel though the less traffic roads to enjoy the pristine beauty of the land of Paddy.

Reach the homestay at Kainakary for a traditional Kerala lunch.

Explore the backwaters on a kayak after lunch. This is a very unique experience of backwaters as you will be paddling through some small backwater canals where a usual boat or houseboat cannot take you through. You will be able to see many local houses on the banks of these canals and can see how the backwater people live here. There will be men concentrated on fishing or duck farming, women washing clothes or group of children swimming in the water, but all of them with a welcoming smile on their faces.

Reach back to Kainakary and take a tuk tuk or local transport for a transfer to your next destination.
