Kumarakom ( Kerala , South India)

  • Kumarakom, a resort destination on the Kuttanad backwaters, is world renowned for enjoying languid days on Vembanad Lake. This is at Kumarakom where Meenachil river meets the Vembanad backwaters. The best way to enjoy Kumarakom is to sail through the backwaters slowly, leisurely and languidly on a traditional Kettuvallam, the traditional rice boat -turned- houseboat, and forget the trials and tribulations of modern life in crowded cities. This is a popularly known bird sanctuary for migratory birds situated on an island west of Kottayam. It is a much sought after holiday destination for backwater experience.

  • The island is surrounded by Vembanad Lake and the land has lots of streams and canals which provide an ideal tourist experience, apart from being a fishing township. The splash of water slapping softly on the banks provides a soothing background score. The breathtaking view of the lake during the dawn and dusk and the glimpse of the formations of birds flapping in and out of the bird sanctuary can be seen from any spot of the island. Reach Pathiramanal island, an ideal midway point for backwater picnic amidst the birds, on traditional Kettuvallam through waterways past paddy and coconut groves, mangroves, along fresh water canals and rivultes that fall into Vembanad Lake. A few lake resorts have been developed for visitors who desire to spend a holiday on the island. From Muhamma boat jetty, the island can be reached in ten minutes.
