We wanted to go for one day houseboat trip in Kerala back water and we choose Kumarakom. Kumarakom is located in Kottayam district of Kerala. 700 km from Bangalore. You can reach it by train, bus and air.
We first went to Ernakulam by KSRTC bus. From Ernakulam we then went to Kottayam by local bus and them from there to houseboat pick up location at Kumarakom by auto. Though it was bit hectic journey, however it was a nice experience with the upcoming excitement.
We reached the pickup location around 11 am and the houseboat was already waiting for us. We have booked two room houseboat. There were three staffs in the boat. They welcomed us and the journey started.
