Activities in Kumarakom

Although there are a number of activities that you can indulge in and see in Kumarakom, it is the backwaters that grab the lion’s share of attention. An overwhelming number of tourists head straight for the backwater which compromises of a network of small rivers and canals that ultimately make their way to Vembanad Lake.

Take a ride in a country boat through the gently flowing canals and see up close the village life along the way. You can also stay in one of the houseboats for a couple of days as the crew takes you through some sparsely populated stretches of calm waters with overhanging coconut palm trees. A cruise through the backwater can be immensely rewarding, invigorating and certainly acts as a distressing agent.

You can also visit the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary on the banks of Vembanad Lake. This sanctuary, spread over 14 acres of land is home to some magnificent birds like the paradise flycatcher, brightly coloured kingfishers, golden backed woodpeckers, night herons, wild ducks, parr.
