Houseboat cruises

Just an hour-and-a-half out of Bekal, The Bekal Resorts Development Corporation runs a couple of houseboats on the Tejaswini river, from Kottapuram in Nileswar to Kowal Kadapuram in Valiyaparamba. Go on a lazy cruise past nine islets, verdant greenery and Chinese fishing nets; swim, laze about, stay a night or two or more, aboard the 2-bedroom and single bedroom boats, all at costs considerably less than what you would pay further down south of the state. Sunset and short cruises cost around Rs 2,500 for a two- and- a- half hour duration. The houseboats are popular floating conference venues; ayurvedic massages are on offer, too.
