More about Kumarakom

Kumarakom is a unique city on Lake Vembanad and leads India’s backwaters tourism industry. The backwaters are a network of lakes and streams that connect the entire region. A fascinating subculture has evolved here, and tourists to the area are shuttled around in long cargo boats that allow them to experience the villages, temples, and churches along the way.

The most evocative accommodations in Kumarakom are the kettuvallum or houseboats which laze along the lakes and maintain a perpetual itinerary of slowly changing sites.

These houseboats are simple, but the experience can be intoxicating. Powered by solar panels and equipped with a captain and cook, they offer an all-inclusive experience. The crew expertly leads passengers to the best places to drop anchor and explore. For many, the highlight is the streamlined simplicity of scheduling a day around the area to do some bird-watching, reading, and watching breathtaking sunsets.

The city’s famous bird sanctuary bustles with activity from November to March, when migratory birds are most active. It's a mesmerizing time to visit Kumarakom.

Between the houseboats and several luxury accommodations, travelers to Kumarakom have several options for exploring this fascinating city.
