Kumarakom Tourism & Travel Guide

Kumarakom is an exotic cluster of villages in Kerala that was created for tourists by claiming land from the Vembanad Lake that surrounds it. The landscape is covered by greenery consisting of shrubs, grass and bushes punctuated by pretty lilies and other flowers. Coconut trees line the horizon and complete the picture. This sleepy lake village is the abode of countless rare migratory birds, including the Siberian Stork and Waterfowls. Egrets, herons, ducks and kingfisher are also commonly seen here. The Vembanad Lake is home to fish, shrimp and prawn. Tourists frequent this destination for its backwater boathouse rides. Though expensive, the experience is worth it, especially if you have a good chef on board, who can make you delicacies of the local cuisine. Kumarakom also houses the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, which is a great place to walk around and for birdwatching. If you happen to be here during the festival of Onam, don't miss out on the boat races. Various kinds of boats such as Odi-Vallam, Churulan Vallam, Chundan Vallam and Kochu-odi Vallam are taken over by more than a thousand oarsmen. Canoe trips can be organised on request and are best enjoyed early in the morning or during the evenings.
