Key Highlights

  • Kumarakom is a nature-lover′s paradise
  • See a variety of birds and enjoy boating on this tour

Overview

Visit Kumarakom in Kerala on your trip to India and discover an India that is not all hustle and bustle and noise. Slender coconut palms, never-ending paddy fields, meandering lagoons and beautiful backwaters have earned Kumarakom, and indeed all of Kerala, the sobriquet “God’s own Country”.

Kumarakom lies on the shores of Vembanad Lake and is a picturesque village. The lake provides boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences that are truly exhilarating.

Another attraction here is the Kumarakom bird sanctuary. Spread across 14 acres, the bird sanctuary is a favourite haunt of migratory birds and an ornithologist's paradise. Egrets, darters, herons, teal, waterfowl, cuckoo, wild duck and migratory birds like the Siberian stork that live in flocks are to be found here.

Enjoy the sounds of bubbling brooks, the call of hundreds of exotic birds and the gentle lapping of oars in the calm backwaters on this tour to Kumarakom.
