Alumkadavu is half way on the route to Alleppey from Kollam. This village is the place where the traditional houseboats of Kerala were constructed. As you glide through the calm and serene backwaters you see a Kerala which has been preserved through the ages yet having progressed with the times.

These backwaters completely hidden from the road, and it is not surprising that this is called God's Own Country.

Karunagapally  is the Hub of the Kettuvallam building industry and has hundreds of artisans who can be seen busy at work putting together a traditional houseboat like it has been done for hundreds of years. These boats, incidentally, do not have any nails or screws joining the planks together but with careful maintenance last for many, many years. Wooden planks from the jackfruit tree are tied securely with the locally-made and easily available coir rope which is coated with a caustic black resin made from boiled cashew kernels.

At Alumkadavu, you might get a chance to see a floating conference hall, perhaps the only one of its kind in the world. Designed for 35 persons, it has a dais and a sophisticated public address system.
