Anakkayam Travel Guide

Anakkayam is located in Kerala and is famous for its beautiful, chiseled rocks and exquisite streams. Anakkayam is also a notable place for its historical name and significance.

According to the legends, once an elephant was drowned in the river of the Anakkayam hill station, and since a lake could drown an enormous elephant, this place has gained the name Anakkayam. According to the sources, it is said that this place belongs to the royal family of this region.

Anakkayam is famous for its splendid lakes and shimmering rivers. It is the extension of the backwaters of Kerala, so people gather here to have a joy ride in the bushes and feel the pleasure of the journey and exclusiveness of the frontiers.

Moreover, the iridescent backwater provides an excellent advantage for tourists to witness the snake boat ride on the aquamarine expanse. These boats are specially constructed to accommodate at least 100 rowers so that they can drive their boat with speed to overtake the other snake boats.

This is a competition that is held every year during a particular time. The festive mood enhances the spirit of the competition. The hills and the superb valley make it an ever charming place for tourists. So, pack up for the next winter and get ready for Anakkayam.
