Living on a houseboat, wandering in a shikhara through backwaters is a heavenly experience. Observing local fishermen quest, water lilies, flora & fauna. Every step taken is worthy of this lovely place.

Ashtamundi has the Kerala’s second longest lake with an overwhelming distance of 16 Kms full of nature is a key element to this place. After covering 16 Km this lake meets its destination The Arabian Sea, wandering around this lake between the groves of coconut trees & exploring the local manufacturing of coir products is memorable.
