Dazzling backwaters of Vaikom, Kerala - March 2009

This amazing backwater is on the way to Kumarakam from Kochi via Vaikom. The backwaters are unique to Kerala that is a network of canals, rivers and big lakes extending throughout the state with numerous villages linked together by ferries and bridges. These coconut palm tasseled inland canals are the main passage for transporting people and cargo between island villages as well to main city of Kochi. Here you can see country boats fully loaded with sands mined from river (mainly used for construction) plying through canals. I don't know whether these sands are legally mined as sand mining is prohibited in this part of Kerala by the government since this cause a lot of ecological problems to the river. A passenger boat that connects Ernakulam and villages can be seen. In one photo a villager in a small dugout transports fresh water filled pots.
