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.

    Trip was all good but expect our resort in Thekkady.. we were checked in crown valley resort.. ambience was good but there was no cleanliness in the room.. it was not cleaned. Floor , windows and bed lamps were full of dust. Apart from this, overall it was a good trip with travel triangle. We enjoyed our days in Munnar, allepey and poovar.. resorts were really good and hygiene.. munnar rivulet resort is very cleaned and maintained.

    Anikanakra's 3 days trip to Kumarakom

    Everything was good. I can say this trip was ok but ya can be improved much. Following points i want to highlight which require improvement: 1) Cab booked was AC sedan but driver kept denying for keeping AC on & it was really too hot in afternoon. 2) Driver was not much aware about routes. After reaching wayanad, he was asking routes of spot to us. I felt extreme pressure in searching spots sequence so that max places can be covered. 3) Trip was not at all clear to driver. 4) Hotel breakfast start timing is really late. I requested them in night for early breakfast that time they told yes but in morning there was no readiness. So we got late in starting and cannot complete all the places after getting ready early & rushing up for the remaining places. At last, i felt trip can be far better if its informed clearly to driver or trip planner will tell the sequence n routes to driver so that the person can enjoy the trip peacefully. I felt it unsatisfactory.

    The trip was memorable... I would like to give 5 star to houseboat.. Boatman and cook were very friendly... Food was excellent... I loved the hospitality... Everything was just perfect. We stayed in Raarees Mist resort.... Food was good... But we didn't get any view from executive room as we expected... There was no housekeeping...otherwise it was good trip..

    Overall experience has been good & we enjoyed the trip. While breakfast & snacks at Kovalam hotel were not up to the expected standards , houseboat was well equipped & staff was courteous & had a good service attitude. Kanyakumari hotel was good & we enjoyed the stay. Motor boat cruise to Poovar island & Jataya earth centre are must-do & memorable experiences.
