A SHORT TOUR OF God’s own country – the backwaters, wildlife and lush countryside of Kerala. Kochi, where the tour begins, is a cluster of islands, one of the finest natural harbours on the world. It used to be the major centre of trade with the British, Arabs, Chinese, Portuguese and Dutch. Even today it remains the main trading centre for spices and seafood. Though it is Kerala’s most cosmopolitan city, the high-rise buildings and malls have not yet to overpower the unique attraction of its ancient mix of cultures which is still very much apparent.
Kumarakom slumbers on the banks of the famous Vembanad Lake with its numerous canals, steams and distributaries that weave an intricate and enchantingly beautiful web. Its undisturbed tranquillity makes it a favourite with vast number of migratory birds who are also attracted by the abundance of fish to be had. Vantage points all along the shore provide excellent bird-watching opportunities which makes Kumarakom a popular destination for enthusiasts.
The Periyar Tiger Reserve around the man made Periyar Lake is one of the sanctuaries that fall under Project Tiger. The extensive deciduous and evergreen forests as well as the grasslands that it includes support a range of wildlife. The elephant population, in particular, has done well and is one of the biggest attractions.
