The real life of Kumarakom’s backwaters lies in the inland channels of Meenachil River and Kayaking is the best way to explore it. The serene backwaters, swaying coconut palms and lush paddy fields makes the village life of Kumarakom a memorable experience. Far from the chaos of the cities, these villages usher us into a world of serenity and peace.

Discover water locked villages and their unique culture. Kerala’s flora and fauna are best experienced on its backwaters.

Early morning and late evenings are the best time to see nature at its best. Spot migratory birds like the siberian stork, egret, darter, heron and teal in the fields in the village area. Witness Kumarakom’s calm village life and interact with the local villagers.
