Hello Sujan; welcome to the site. We do have a rule not to ask the same question more than once.

Time and navigation permitting, you can use private launches just like taxis; they will take you where-ever you want to go. I have done Kumarakom to Kochi by launch twice; it takes about five hours.

Hello ,

I do remember the rule from next time.

How much they will charge for launch (We are 4 adults)? Are they charging per hour ?
If it's affordable then I can book it while reaching at Alleppy, take a trip of back water for whole day and leave it at Cochin.

I also came to know we can bargain the price as there is Hundreds of agencies are there? Is it true?

For the details, I hope a local person, or one with experience replies... i rely on others when I am in that area!

I think the situation will be very similar to cars, and the prices are probably pretty much regular, but, like cars, you can rule out the complete ripoffs by checking three or four operators.
