The village of Kumarakom is a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake, and this small water world is part of the Kuttanad region. The Kumarakom bird sanctuary here, which is spread across 14 acres, is a favorite haunt of migratory birds and an ornithologist's paradise. Egrets, darters, herons, teal, waterfowl, cuckoo, wild duck, and migratory birds like the Siberian stork that live there in flocks fascinates the visitors. The best way to watch the birds of the Kumarakom sanctuary is a boat trip round the islands.

An unbelievably beautiful paradise of mangrove forests, emerald green paddy fields, and coconut groves interspersed with enchanting waterways and canals adorned with while lilies makes the beauty of Kumarakom. A picturesque world of backwaters thatched houseboats, Cormorants, Chinese fishing nets, and swaying palms are ideal for a vacation.
