Kerala's awesome backwater network includes five large lakes interlinked by beautiful narrow canals, and filled by 41 gushing rivers flowing down the hills of the Western Ghats. This amazing system of waterways is dotted with towns and cities offering backwater cruises that traverse the nooks and bends of narrow canals, estuaries and lakes.
Come over :
experience the culture and spirit of Kerala’s backwaters. We have
houseboat cruises, backwater facing resorts, and can help you interact seamlessly with
traditional communities living on the banks.
Kerala’s backwaters harbour and support fragile coastal ecosystems that offer shelter
to many unique species of aquatic life like crabs, frogs, mudskippers wetland birds like
terns, storks, herons, cormorants, fishing eagles, and animals like otters and turtles. We
are sincerely concerned about these ecosystems and ensure all our tour programs are
eco-friendly and leave the smallest possible footprint.

Hill stations were refuges from summer heat for European colonisers and are high
altitude places that have a more pleasant climate when compared to the plains. They
offer spectacular mountain views and are very good for treks, tent camps and wildlife
viewing. Pontiac Journeys operates tours and treks
to and within Ooty, Kodaikanal,
Munnar, Wynad and Vagamon.
Hill stations also offer wildlife viewing and birding opportunities and we at Pontiac
Journeys, through our passion for wildlife and nature, have charted out fascinating treks
and tent camps
through the montane forests. You can view wildlife, watch birds and
butterflies and commune with nature like never before.

As of now, Kerala has 6 national parks and 14 wildlife sanctuaries located mainly along
the thickly wooded regions of the Western Ghats, the most recent being Pampadum

evergreen rainforests can be experienced upfront and close while on a trip to any of
these sanctuaries. Pontiac Journeys provide tours to sanctuaries that include trekking,
