A view at Kumarakom,Kerala, India

About Kumarakom:-Kumarakom is a small town in Kerala. If you have seen pictures of the traditional country boat in Kerala backwaters, the chances are they are from Kumarakom. Kumarakom is a cluster of little islands, standing on the eastern banks of the charming Vembanad Lake, at around 14 km from Kottayam. Located in a maze of lush waterways and sandwiched between the ocean-like lake and a network of backwaters, this water world is a part of the Kuttanad region.

Kumarakom, once an old rubber plantation, was subsequently developed into a Bird Sanctuary – and today is one of the famous tourist attractions. Kumarakom is an unbelievably beautiful paradise of mangrove forests, emerald green paddy fields and coconut groves interspersed with enchanting waterways and canals with white lilies. Situated on the Vembanad Lake, this water world has plenty of traditional country boats, crafts and canoes which will take you in to the heart of scenic Kerala.
