Kumarakom, Kerala

Been there recently?

It is 16 kilometres away from Kottayam in Kerala. The town of Kumarakom is a collection of numerous tiny artificial islands that have been excavated from Kerala’s picturesque Vembanad Lake. It is an unforgettable experience to cruise in houseboats along the serene backwaters while taking in the magnificent beauty of the surroundings and learning about the local culture of the small hamlets tucked away on the outskirts. The eponymous bird sanctuary in Kumarakom, which is a well-known location to see migratory and endemic birds, is well-known for its abundance of avian life. Wood beetles, larks, flycatchers, parrots, teals, Siberian cranes, owls, water ducks, and waterfowl are a few of the noteworthy bird species that can be seen here.
