Canoe Trips:

The village canoes or kothumbuvalloms are the best way to penetrate the narrow serpentine canals here. As your canoe cut the mirror surfaces of Vembanad kayal, you can watch how the locals go about their daily lives. As you move on, your eras will be greeted with vanchipattu (folk songs) of boat men or solitary fisherman echoing through the gentle hush of waves. Waddling ducks chattering noisily as they dove into the water rich with marine life, children making merry swaying from trees and jumping into the canals, water side tea shops making brisk businesses, women traders in local canoes gliding past with the freshest of fish, are common sights you could see.

 

Kerala Delicacies:

As Kumarakom is the dwelling of many marine and freshwater fishes, sea foods are abundant here. The lake side hotels here offers sea foods prepared in Kerala style with spices and coconut sauce, along with kappa (tapioca) and brimming toddy. At many places, you can choose fishes, prawns, giant lobsters, mussels and squids from the fresh ones displayed and they will get it cooked according to your choice.
