That is the pristine beauty of Kumarakom.
Kumarakom the charming emerald peninsula jutting into the ever-effervescent Vembanad Lake takes you into the heart of the scenic lake where youll come across plenty of traditional country crafts, boats and canoes. The labyrinth of lagoons, brooks, canals and waterways that make up the backwater houses a variety of species of fauna and flora.They are rich with marine life especially the exclusive Kumarakom Karimeen (pearl spotted fish), Konju (tiger prawns), Njandu (crabs), Chemeen (prawns) and many more.These are also offered as delicious houseboat food.
In the Indian tourism landscape, Kumarakom holds an enviable position by virtue of its natural beauty, eco-sensitivity, the rarest of rare bird sanctuaries and the verdant village ambience that gel perfectly with the magnificence of the Arabian seascape. When you float out on the waters, you can watch flocks of egrets and snakebirds in close quarters; the way they maneuver their way deep down into the water and surface with an unusual kill perched in between their bills is a sight that shouldn’t be missed.
Kumarakom offers a rare school for bird-lovers and ornithologists who flock from around the world to frequent this pristine preserve that roosts extraordinary migratory attractions. Like some close encounters with them? Sit back, out in the open of the boat, and let your eyes wander. Serious birdwatchers could sport a pair of binoculars for detailed viewing.
