Shikkara is a mixed version of Alleppey houseboats and kashmiri boathouses. It is small in size with roof and wall carved with bamboo sheets. Shikkara is beautiful handicraft work in traditional kerala style. These can accommodate 4 to 15 people. The ride started from Alappuzha boat jetty. The shikkara crossed the canal and went into the main backwaters. The most exciting feature of a shikkara is that it can go even into very small canals and interiors which houseboats and motorboats can not traverse. The shikkara took us into the remote interior areas of Kuttanad as the locality is called. We could see the rural life of the water borne villages of Kerala men fishing in canoes, mussel farming, coir making in households etc.
