Thiruvallam Backwaters

The boats cross shallow, palm-fringed lakes studded with cantilevered Chinese fishing nets, and travel along narrow, shady canals. Along the way are small settlements where people live on narrow spits of reclaimed land only a few metres wide. The larger boats are motorised but there are numerous smaller boats propelled by punting with a long bamboo pole.
