Kumarakom, Kerala, India

Kumarakom slumbers on the banks of the famous Vembanad Lake, which is a part of Kuttanad ('granary' of Kerala). The Vembanad Lake with its majestic canals, streams and distributaries along its banks weave an intricate and enchantingly beautiful web. The gorgeous green of the fringed palms ripple in the blue waters and blend into wavelets.

Kumarakom, KeralaThe water ways of Kuttanad is now a big attraction for tourist. It is incredibly different experience to cruise in the backwaters in country boats, absorbing the beauty of Kerala villages. The scenery flashes up vivid contrasts of breath-taking greens and deep blues.

The people on the banks of Vembanad Lake are generally peace-loving and follow a neat and healthy lifestyle. Their dressing is immaculate, usually spotless whites. They keep their dwellings and surroundings very clean. The food mainly consist of rice and fish. For breakfast it is usually 'Dosa' or 'Idly', both made from rice paste, swallowed down with coconut chutney. Fish is a very important item in their menu for lunch and dinner . 'Karimeen' a spotted fish is a special gift of the backwaters.

TRANSPORT
Kuttanad is one of the very few places in the world, where mode of transportation is through the water ways. Small canoes to very large 'Kettu Valloms' are used for transportation. Everywhere in Kuttanad, one can find boats filled to capacity with families travelling to different destinations and also bigger boats carrying goods such as rice, coconut etc. The fact that even the mail and morning newspaper are delivered by these boats complete the picture.

The traditional houseboat of Kerala is one of the most enduring images of the backwaters. These houseboats are converted version of the traditional "Kuttanadan Kettu Valloms", comfortably furnished and offer adequate accommodation for a whole family, with a sitting room, a bedroom and a kitchen. These palm-covered country boats were designed to carry cargo, such as coconut and spices, and to provide a living accommodation for the boatmen. A few of them offer holiday makers the ultimate backwater experience. Preserving the historic character and style, our craftsmen have created a unique atmosphere on board, a luxurious, self-contained world from which to observe rural Indian life flowing gently by. The experience will be quite different from any other holiday.
