Backwaters are one of the prime tourist draws in Kerala. Backwaters is a body of stagnant water connected to a river. The experience that backwaters provide cannot be summed up in words. The beauty is spectacular and the feel is heavenly. Kerala, is called as God's Own Country and to a great extent, Backwaters add to this overall title.

According to a folklore, a warrior sage Parasuraman, reclaimed Kerala from the sea by the throw from his battle- axe. Whatever the legends point towards, the fact is that the huge necklace of canals, lagoons, lakes and rivers that Kerala holds are termed commonly as the Backwaters. The land of Kerala becomes special of holding a unique feature like backwater, which is found no where in this world. The 41 west flowing rivers of Kerala form the backbone to this magnificent gift of nature. The Magical Backwaters
