Vembanad Lake In Kumarakom

The longest lake in India, Vembanad Lake is one of the most popular attractions in Kerala. The largest lake in Kerala, one of the largest in the country and even one of the largest freshwater lakes in the continent, Vembanad Lake is a tranquil spot for those looking to relax and enjoy their vacation away from the hustle bustle of city life.

Lake Vembanad covers an area of 200 sq km, and is at sea level. It is separated from the Arabian Sea by a narrow island. The lake is home to some of the most beautiful islands of the state such as the Pallippuram, Perumbalam and Pathiramanal. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is located right on the shores of the lake, and also offers a peaceful stretch of backwaters for a long, leisurely cruise. The lake offers boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences for tourists. Try to spend a night at one of the resorts nearby or on a houseboat so that you can enjoy the full experience of being at Lake Vembanad

Vembanad Lake in Kumarakom is not just a tourist attraction, but also a place to hang out and enjoy picnics with the family or with friends. If you visit Vembanad Lake during the festival of Onam, you can also be a spectator of the world famous snake boat races. It is indeed a magical and thrilling sight to see hundreds of oarsmen rowing their boat in unison, singing songs on the top of their voices about their rowing prowess and more. Vembanad Lake history also includes some tragic boat accidents during the races. Vembanad Lake boating tour is a must-try activity for tourists in Kerala. Travelers can check into a Vembanad Lake houseboat to stay, dine, and experience the timeless beauty of the shoreline.

    Rohitsharma's 6 days trip to Kumarakom

    1] All Hotel were good except bamboo creak at thekkdy. We didn't got hot water for bath over there. 2] Package with all the inclusion like jeep safari , boating at poovar can be good option. (Obviously extra money can be charged for this) Incase if agent have such plan he didn't shared information about it. 3)At beginning of journey itinerary print must be provided to driver as well as travellers so as to understand the plan in detail. 4]Drinking water must be provided during the journey because sometime journey is at remote location 5] Efforts by travel agent was good to get this tour happen Cab and Driver was very nice. All journey was awesome specially house boat.

    This was our first trip with Travel Triangle and it was the best trip. Travel agent has made every arrangement perfect and as committed. The driver was very friendly and helpful. There was small issue in Thekkady we had. The hotel was far from city area and has off road track. It was not easy to drive a car on the road but still our driver made sure that we reached there safely. Also upon arriving there we found that hotel has no facility for driver. Even travel agent was also not aware about surroundings of hotel. That caused us the trouble. Apart from this our trip was fantastic. Thank you

    Anilsinha's 6 days trip to Kumarakom

    My wife and I generally enjoyed the whole trip. The cab driver behavior did put us off as he wanted to control our trip. The hotel in Kovalam was below our expectation. We enjoyed the Houseboat stay a lot. The Munnar hotel could have done better. Finely, the stay in Kochi was enjoyed a lot. On the whole, Kerala, the area we visited, is so nice and beautiful. The trip was worth the effort.

    The best time to visit the lake is during the Onam festival and when the Annual Nehru Trophy Boat Race is being held. One of the unique experience here is watching the oarsmen row their boats and race each other.

    The lake has boating facilities which include speedboating and motorboating. Houseboats are available for those who want to stay overnight. For the adventurous, there are water sports as well as water skiing and wind sailing.

    Vembanad Lake is the longest lake in India, and the largest in Kerala. The lake borders the islands of Pathiramanal, Pallippuram, and Perumbalam and is an immensely popular backwater stretch in Kerala. Situated in the heart of the backwaters of Kerala, the lake is a perfect blend of the hues of sapphire and emerald. It is one of the most beautiful and serene lakes in India.

    The lake in Kerala borders Alappuzha, Kottayam, and Ernakulam districts.
