About Kumarakom Tourism Guide

An 'All-You-Need Kumarakom Travel Guide' to help you plan the perfect holiday

Being one of the most popular tourist destinations, known for its divine, pristine and serene ambience and nature, Kumarakom district is different from every other city in Kerala. And, with a bevy of natural offerings to cater every travellers’ desires, Kumarakom tourism has a fascinating experience to cherish.

It is interesting to know that the name Kumarakom was derived from the deity of its oldest temple Kumaran, Kumaran's Akam, and thus the place was known as Kumarakom. The place is extremely fertile and is most suitable for the cultivation of rice and coconut trees. The arrival of the English farmer Alfred George Baker in 1847 was a major landmark in its history since he reclaimed 500 acres of Vembanad Lake when he realised the full potential of this island.

Kumarakom is a set of small islands perched on the edge of Vembanad Lake known to be the largest lake in Kerala, which is blessed with great weather, beautiful landscapes, waterways and lush greenery. There are long rows of coconut trees giving it a tropical touch.

Houseboats in Kumarakom

Being a hub of exotic animal species, migratory birds, and some fascinating sights, here one can have a magical experience while enjoying a sojourn on a houseboat till midnight. Moreover, equipped with some lavish and ecstatic experiences, a stay on houseboats is an experience of a lifetime. With an array of houseboats to choose from, one can either hop on a paradise houseboat, or Indraprastham, or lakeview houseboats, or tharavadu houseboats, the options are plenty.

Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary

Kumarakom is home to a wide variety of tropical flora and fauna. An important attraction is the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, where a significant number of bird species are known to make migratory visits. The park area covers around 15 acres and functions under the jurisdiction of the government of Kerala. One of the important migratory species is the Siberian crane. Other tropical species such as the egret, heron, waterfowls, ducks, moorhens, and kingfishers are commonly found here.

Backwaters of Kumarakom

Famed for its backwater activities, Kumarakom offers some amazing experiences that beguile tourists to come here again and again.

Choose to sail through enticing views from Alleppey to Kumarakom while enjoying a cruise or houseboat ride. And, cherish dream-like views before snuggling to a cosy stay amidst nature. An excursion to the backwaters of Kumarakom also let people enjoy fishing, snake-boat racing and canoeing.

Romantic Places in Kumarakom

For couples who love to explore and enjoy a sojourn in the midst of nature, Aruvikkuzhi Waterfall and its surrounding rubber plantations offering some pleasing views to the photographer’s eye can be a great attraction to visit on a honeymoon. There is also the Bay Island Drift Museum near the Kumarakom beach for history buffs. And, the Vembanad Lake- home to many marine and freshwater fish- is one of the highlights of Kumarakom tourism. While, Pathiramanal, also known as the Sands of Night, is a home to rare species of migratory birds. It is a great place to cherish bird watching, and have an invigorating experience while enjoying honeymoon in Kumarakom.

Situated on the backwater lagoons in the state of Kerala, Kumarakom has proximity to many beautiful places which make a tour to this town even more interesting.

To make the most of their excursion, tourists can choose to unwind themselves in a beautiful and luxurious resort. Especially, a resort in the vicinity of the banks of the Vembanad Lake. And, while cruising through the beautiful backwaters and enchanting lakes, one can also try boating for an altogether a different experience. While, indulging in an ayurvedic massage treatment and watching splendid sunset views with their beloved can add some romantic moments to their honeymoon tour. Couples can also choose to hop on a tour to Vagamon hill station replete with lush green meadows.

We just completed 5 days; 5 days and 4 night in Munnar, Thekkady and Alappy which was really amazing. We both enjoyed it, all the trips were su
    ch fun, and we especially appreciated that the logistics were all so well planned. Absolutely nothing went wrong, all tours were on time and everything was flawless! The highlight was definitely the Tree House in Spiceslap which was really special, but all of the trips were fantastic. Mr Jobi, our driver was so kind and was really sincere. His suggestions and planning really helped us to make the trip much more special. The hotels and locations were perfect. House boat trip in Alappy was really romantic. We will never forget the cake cutting and the candle light dinner ❤️ you arranged for us for a lifetime. Also the decorations in the room. And thanks Mr. Byju chetta for the hospitality and the tasty native foods
