Kumarakom is a cluster of small islands with their wonder enhanced by the beguiling beauty of the many canals, lagoons, and waterways that surround the islands, collectively forming the Backwaters.
Beautiful houseboats being manned by the local oarsmen enchant many tourists to rent a houseboat here. Each houseboat usually contains a living room, one bedroom, a bathroom and a deck. A local oarsman will pole the houseboat for you, as you explore the beauty of the region.
The clear, mirror like lagoons invite a plethora of flora and fauna, which add to the beguiling charm of the picture perfect backwaters. Large houseboat companies now accommodate several houseboats together to house larger tourist groups, making it a very convenient holiday spot.
