Kumarakom is a village with a backdrop of the Vembanad Lake and the backwaters dotted with varied wildlife, canals, lakes and rivulets in the southern India. It is a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake and is part of the Kuttanad region. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is included in almost all Kumarakom tour packages which is spread across 14 acres witnessing the rarest flocks of migratory and regional birds and making the land a birdwatcher’s paradise. It is home to birds like Waterfowl, Egrets, Darters, Herons, Teals, cormorant, moorhen and Cuckoo, Wild Duck and migratory birds like the Siberian crane and the Siberian Stork.
It is the best place to seize the waterscapes in your camera lenses and live on a houseboat that sails through the backwaters, run around the coconut grooves out of sheer euphoria and eat on a banana leaf. It is prettier than any painting or picture you saw of Kumarakom and the best Kumarakom tour packages may bestow you with a chance to also engage in activities like boating, strolling, quick & short treks and angling. The real traditional musings like Kathakali Dance and Snake Boat racing are few of the things that you only get to see in Kerala and Kumarakom can be one of the centres to witness the art. With its pristine environment of the backwaters, lush greenery and the rich culture and traditions in this state, your holiday here will be a memorable and cherishable experience. So, too caught up with the humdrum of city lives and its fast pace then head here for a truly serene vacation to recharge and unwind before you get back again to hard work and monotony.
