Le Green House Boats
Le Green Kettuvalloms or Houseboats (Rice boats) are country boats that were used in the early days for the transport of goods from the isolated interior villages to the towns. With the advent of roads, bridges and ferry services, the Kettuvalloms went off the scene. Now these kettuvalloms are back again as luxurious House boats and a ride on them is a fabulous way to explore the fascinating beauty of the Kerala backwaters.
A Le Green house boat is about 67 feet in length and has a width of around 13 feet in the middle. The materials that go into the making of a Le Green House boat are all local and eco friendly bamboo poles, coconut fiber ropes, bamboo mats, coir carpets etc. Solar panels for electricity and bio-toilets are fitted to ensure that the delicate eco system of the backwaters is left undisturbed.
