Backwaters

The Kerala Backwaters are a chain of brackish lagoons, channels, lakes, and deltas of approximately 38 rivers emptying in the Arabian Sea. The network includes five large lakes linked by 1500 km of canals, both manmade and natural. The backwaters were formed by the action of waves and shore currents creating low barrier islands across the mouths of the many rivers flowing down from the Western Ghats range. It would be possible to explore the beauty of the Backwaters for weeks, for us it was only one great day yet unforgettable.
