Kumarakom Backwaters In Kumarakom

The beauty of the Kumarakom Backwaters lies in its tranquility. A sense of peace prevails as you glide across the calm canals, past the small fishing villages and further towards the edge of the sea. When in Kerala, tourists make sure that they spend at least a night or a few hours at the backwaters, if not on an overnight cruise then at least on a small boat tour. The houseboats are pretty well stocked and furnished, and offer all the modern amenities that a hotel does, so a stay here is sure quite comforting.

When hiring a Kumarakom backwater cruise, it is a good idea to spend some time exploring the nearby villages to get a sneak peek into the local lifestyle. <readmore>You can indulge in the local delicacies and also visit the little markets to shop for a few handmade souvenirs. A sightseeing tour of the Kumarakom Backwaters will surely make your holiday is Kerala more memorable!

      No Planning for sightseeing. List of activities not followed. Driver less understand English/Hindi (But Driving was Fabulous), Also less knowledge. Many Place skipped. Travel Triangle Agent Surbhi Mathur not picked the call once. No assistance. High Price Tour for me.

    • Trip to Kerala

      Kerala always has been a good destination for couples who like to enjoy their private time. And this time it was no different. Except for the fact that we were able to take more time and spend time between each other rather than finding the Road and hotels because all that was done by Travel Triangle - Teamwork tour planner folks. They had meticulously planned the places and the driver was a wonderful guy who was perfect in all the areas- including talk, drive and suggesting the time to leave and come back. The arrangements were perfect with few glitches and I agree I am nitpicking here. The points that I am adding here are for improvement purposes. 1.We missed the breakfast every time because we wake up early and try to leave the hotel room at 7:30 AM. The breakfast starts at 8:30 and the resort staff packed Bread with butter for us. I guess it would be wise to start the breakfast at 7:00 and serve those who leave early. 2. Ervikulam national park is closed during this time of the year and we had expected to cover it. It was mentioned in the itinerary but we could not cover it 3. The driver we got was amazingly co-operative so we asked him if he wouldn't mind showing Kochi and few places on the way which are not included in the itinerary and he obliged. I guess not all the drivers are as friendly as him and agree as easily. So it would be good to add the kochi places to the itinerary and they are all pretty much coverable on the day we reach if we are able to reach Kochi before 8:00 Am. I am adding the best experience points here: 1. Boat house and the honeymoon inclusion with candle light dinner was exceptional and we liked the food quality and the ways and manners of the staff. 2. The seven springs resort is in a pristine place and is located at the right spot to enjoy the prefect weather of Munnar. 3. Driver was extremely good and I would definitely recommend him for all those who are travelling to Kerala. He was very good at timing and driving. 4.Places were perfectly planned and we had absolutely no issues with lunch and dinner. I am happy this time that I chose Travel Triangle and I am looking forward for another trip with them in a very short while . Thank you !

      Well Organized. I was very happy to see the House Boat, which very nice compared to any other around there. #shreekrishnahoudeboats thank u so much. Ajeesh from Southern Travels was very active. May be at some points he would have been a bit more quickl enough to cover some more places. Else, he was good, knew all the details of the places. If his health was fine we would have been more cheerful. 7Springs, lovely place to stay. All the facilities there are really nice. Tree house was more attractive and we missed it. Overall, arrangement was excellent and I would give all 5 starts to DisciverMyTravel for that. #discovermytravel and Specially Mr. Rishi away very active and did everything perfectly. Thanks to u man. Houseboat, Candlelight Dinner, 7Springs Resort.
