There are many wonderful things you can do at Kumarakom. Wake up early in the morning for the grandest show on earth. The sunrise. In the mornings, the lake is calm, misty and sensuous. And the sun breaks with a smile and stretches its arm across the river to wish you good morning. Take out a ride in one of our boats and watch waterfowls come to life.
Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary : A trip to Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary what you shouldn't miss.  The best time for this is between November and March, when a range of migratory birds from Siberia make it their winter home. Some of the species include the Snake bird, Little Cormorant, Crow Pheasant, White-branded water Hen and Tree pie. Occasionally you can catch the native kingfishers setting the waters ablaze in a psychedelic flash of colours. The night herons, the Golden-backed woodpeckers are added delights. At the fourteen-acre bird sanctuary one can glimpse many a rare bird – some of which, sadly, may not be around forever

Kettuvallams : Kettuvallams are huge, tapering barges which were traditionally used to cargo rice and other goods across Kerala. It has a portion covered with bamboo and coir serving as kitchen and rest rooms for the crew. These boats are entirely built without the use of nails. Planks of jack wood are woven together with coir ropes and coated with a black resin made from boiled cashew kernels.
Modern-day Kettuvallams called houseboats, carry finished bedrooms, modern toilets, cozy living rooms, a kitchen and even a balcony where tourists can laze on cushions. Sections of the carved roof of wood and plaited palms open out to provide shade and allow an uninterrupted view. Most of the boats are poled by local oarsmen. Some are powered by engines. Gliding on serene backwaters, visitors can witness an un-spoilt Kerala.

Sunset & Sunrise Cruise on a Kettuvallam : No trip to Kumarakom is complete without a Kettuvallam sunset or sunrise cruise. The ride offers a close look into a delightful rustic life. Skiff-fishermen launching their tiny boats. Large flotillas of ducks waddling down to the water from coconut leaf thatched houses on the banks of canals. Palm-filled lagoons, an enchanting view of wooded islands and the main lands are poetically beautiful scenes.
