How much is this boat ride? And is the route scenic? Would love to see the backwaters without actually staying for the night on a boat!

You can do that easily without having anything to do with a house boat. Vessels from kayaks to motor launches are available.

It costs around INR400. Its worthwhile - route is scenic. If you dont have 8 hours to spare, you can try Alappuzha - Kuttanadu (Kainakary) boat service which has a tourist upper deck and takes about 4 hours for the return trip at just about INR80. Very scenic route.
