to take you away.To a land breathtakingly beautiful, peacefully
serene and wholesomely pristine? Well, dreams have the uncanny
ability of coming true. Especially when you arrive at the Kumarakom

first thing I'd like to do on arriving at Kumarakom? Take
a refreshing dip of course. The chequered pool bordering
the lake looks inviting and lovely. As I laze in the pool,
I take in the vast expanse of the lake simmering and the
warm afternoon melts away into a buoyant mellow. The wind
rushes along to meet me like a long lost friend, warping
its arms around me lovingly. While swaying palms, nod
in agreement - as if enacting a secret prank.
of the sun, here's the temple. The tropical sun promises
to give a healthy tan. The heat doesn't burn as the wind,
skimming the lake is cool and invigorating. And if really
gets too hot to handle, dive in. If the pool is not challenging
enough, try out the lake itself!
pamper myself at the Jacuzzi enclosure. The best thing
is that from the pool I can enjoy the greatest shows on
earth. The sunrise and sunset on the backwaters, is an
experience like none other. Along with the side-shows
which are equally delightful a starry night or a moonlit
night. Intermittently, I saunter along to the Ettukettu
for a shot or two of my favourite drink. Or a couple of
beers. You could also order fresh fermented coconut sap
(Toddy), heady and sweet, especially in the mornings
a few laps, no one blames you if you're hungry enough
to eat, like they say in Malayalam, a whole elephant!
Good enough for me. They have a barbecue in waiting ready
to dole out succulent seafood in traditional Kerala style.
And the choicest Mutton Kebabs, Mughlai style. Yum Yum.
to Visit and watch
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
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
the famous Snake Boat Race are spectacles enacted on the
onset of the Onam season. The backwaters of Alleppey
come alive with the rivers becoming flush after the rainy
season. It becomes the venue to Kerala's major attraction
the Nehru Throphy Snake Boat Race which take
place in August September every year. Magnificently
decorated long boats with raised sterns which resemble
the raised hood of cobras (hence the term, snake boat)
rush through the waters in a flash of oars and a roar.
Oars swinging to a fast-paced rhythm. And the snake boats
shoot across the emerald stretches. Enthusiastically powered
by over 150 singing and drum beating oarsmen. The spring
season is at its charming best. A spellbinding display
of strength and beauty. The backwaters will be teeming
with exhilarated spectators cheering (some of whom come
from the farthest corners of the world). Other major events
are the Payipad, Pulinkunnu and Aranmula races.
