Inland waterways get a boost

Aimed at enhancing patronage of the under-utilised Kollam-Kottapuram National Waterway III (NW III), Kerala Tourism has stated its willingness to encourage boats to ferry tourists along the stretch.

Currently, boats ferry guests on short tours through the States inland waterways, mainly in Ernakulam and also Alappuzha and Kumarakom (where houseboats dominate).

Catering to the demand from travellers interested in taking a boat ride along the scenic inland waterway, the State Water Transport Department had over a month ago re-introduced a luxury boat service operating between Kollam and Alappuzha.
