Journey along Ashtamudi Lake

A journey along Ashtamudi Lake is one of the most popular houseboat tours from Kollam. The backwater tours of the state of Kerala are very popular among the tourists who come to visit the place from different corners of the world.

The Ashtamudi Lake of Kollam has got its name from the eight channels, which are parts of the lake. The main attraction of the lake is the fascinating natural view. The 16 kilometer long Ashtamudi Lake merges with the sea through the Neendakara estuary. An important river of the region, Kalladayar flows into the lake located in the Kollam district.

Tourists frequently visit Kollam City to experience a boat ride on the Ashtamudi Lake. The Kollam Boat Club provides a number of boats for a pleasure ride across the lake. Tourists can also avail a backwater cruise for an extensive water journey from Kollam to Alappuzha. The Chinese fishing nets or the Chinese Vala are spread all along the lake.

Kollam serves as one of the starting points of the backwater tour along Ashtamudi Lake. The city can be reached via Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, which is located only 71 kilometers away from Kollam city. The city can also be accessed from different cities of Kollam district as well as Kerala.

Ashtamudi Resort offers good accommodation facility to the visitors of the place. A journey along Ashtamudi Lake remains incomplete without the luxurious stay at this hotel. The resort also makes arrangement for backwater cruise. However, people can also arrange for the houseboat tours along the Ashtamudi Lake with the aid of the local travel agents and tour operators.
