Kumarakom Tourism

When nature is all you need to recuperate, Kumarakom is undoubtedly the most invigorating, fascinating paradise in Kerala, God's own country. The slender coconut palms standing here, there and everywhere,never ending paddy fields, meandering lagoons and backwaters, mangroves, and nesting birds of a hundred varieties can peacefully calm and invigorate your mind with renewed inspiration for your vocation and life. That is the pristine beauty of Kumarakom.

Marine life

Kumarakom, the charming emerald peninsula jutting into the ever-effervescent Vembanad Lake takes you into the heart of the scenic lake where you'll come across plenty of traditional country crafts, boats and canoes. The fresh water of the lake runs into the mainland, making a labyrinth of lagoons, brooks, canals and waterways.

The backwater houses a variety of species of both fauna and flora. They are rich with marine life namely the exclusive 'Kumarakom Karimeen' (pearl spotted fish), Konju (tiger prawns), Njandu (crabs), Chemmeen (prawns) and many more.

As the monsoon winds bring rain to the shores of Vembanad Lake , Kumarakom is transformed into a rich, fertile land. The streams, lagoons,and brooks break their banks and provide nourishment to springs and shrubs that sprout from every available space.

Leisure options
Water birds, migratory birds, mangrove shores and the renowned bird sanctuary form their niche. The resorts nearby offer comfortable accommodation and exclusive leisure options like  Ayurvedic massage, yoga, meditation, boating, fishing and swimming. The adventurous could indulge in water sports such as windsailing and waterskiing.

You could even take a canoe out into the quiet lakes and armed with a fishing rod, catch your own supper. Make sure you do not miss out on karimeen and fresh toddy, the favourite fresh water food and the local wine. The local spring season emerges in August and coincides with the harvest festival of Onam.
