Kumarakom Small Country Boats,Kerala Valloms or Vanchy

Kumarakom is a cluster of small islands in the Vembanad. The backwaters here are always live with House boats and small Country boats. These small boats are mainly used for fishing and also for small boat tour trips and transportation through the inland water channels and the vembanad lake.

The photo of the small boat was taken during our boat trip through the backwaters. It was tied up in the gateway to the backwaters from an inland water stream.Have to say this boat is an ideal one to row through the streams that are branched like the veins of the mangrove forests in the bird sanctuary here.

These types of small canoes are used by the local people here in their daily life.Eventhogh the villages are connected by bridges, still there are some places which can be accessed only through water. There are some tourist spots like Pathiramanal, an island in the Vembanadu lake, and tourist have to take the backwater cruises to reach there.

The ideal thing to do if you plan to Kumarakom is to checkout through the backwater tour packages available here and select one. The rates are reasonable and includes kerala's traditional meals and drinks(of all type). A series of houseboat photographs, the lake and the mangroves are still to come.

This tour pics are not at all taken with the care or intention to post,but were just some amateur shots and i shall say that the place's beauty was beyond the limit of the small camera we had. Infact was not a photography tour trip huh. But take ma word for it that you gonna love this place for the tropical weather and the scenic beauty of the place along with the delicious fish recipes you gonna get.

Taking a house boat for rent, and having the tour trip along the backwaters of Kerala is having an assured enchant. So many House boat photos are gonna come, along with the snaps taken while walking through the mangrove forests in the Bird Sanctuary here in Kumarakom the Backwater paradise of Kerala.
