about vembanad lake

Kumarakom is a cluster of little islands situated in the Vembanad Lake. The longest lake in India, it is also the largest in Kerala which falls on the northern extension of the backwaters. Known as Punnamada Lake in Kuttanad (located in the Kuttanad region of the district of Alappuzha) and Kochi Lake in Kochi ( located in and around the Kochi mainland), this lake plays host to the famous Nehru Trophy Boat Race. Identified under National Wetlands Conservation Programme by the Government, the lake is a home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. These backwaters are very popular among tourists and give its visitors a memory for a lifetime. Here you can indulge in the serenity of the backwaters when you sail through the lagoons and backwater lined with tall coconut trees. Look through the clear water, and you'll be able to spot little Karimeen (pearl spot fish). What are you waiting for? Hire a houseboat and set out sailing on the Vembanad Lake to experience nature at its best. You can either hire a houseboat which are more on the luxurious side with fancy bedrooms and bathrooms or get a boat which looks like a passenger boat and has a deck.

A tranquil day on the backwaters
Jun 19 2014
I had booked a houseboat for a day from 11am to 5 pm which included a welcome drink, lunch and evening tea and snacks. We had a wonderful and serene experience in backwaters and are planning to take the overnight package on our next visit.
