A refreshing boat journey @ Rs 6.50

Once upon a time, there were more than 15 boats plying between Varapuzha and Kochi, the nearest city. This was the only mode of transport for the islanders living on the banks of river Periyar. Now most of these islands are connected by road (bridges), hence the number of boats have reduced to just 3 now. It is a very refreshing experience. You can witness the life on the banks of Periyar, the chinese nets, the churches, the coracles, yachts, and the soothing cold breeze. I have posted some of the photos taken by me during my recent boat journey between Varapuzha and Kochi on flickr. Click on the photos on the right.
