Why visit Kumarakom

A sleepy backwater town set on a beautiful emerald peninsula jutting into the waters of the Vembanad Lake, Kumarakom is a lush and green piece of paradise.

A cluster of tiny islands nestles among an intricate web of mangrove forests, paddy fields and coconut groves, intersected by canals, lagoons and waterways.

Country craft, boats and canoes explore the serene canals, while houseboats invite guests to while away the days leisurely meandering the lake’s waters.

Why Visit?

  • Hop into a canoe and get a front-row seat to the hustle and bustle of village life along the waterways.
  • Treat yourself to a fun-filled house boat excursion. Be sure to keep your camera at the ready as the lake and its inhabitants offer great photographic opportunities.
