Things To Do In Kerala

Kerala is God's own country. It allows you to explore the best destinations as it has fascinating back history. It has some of the best things to do that you just cannot miss out. To be short and sweet it is absolutely blissful. Explore this scenic beauty with our Kerala Holiday packages. 
Kumarakom makes for an ideal escape, far from the chaos of the city. Since it is located on the east shore of the Vembanad lake, an ideal evening here is spent cruising and peacefully watching the sun set towards west. You may choose to cruise in houseboats, motor boats, shikaras or even speed boats – but really, slow and silent is the way to go while you are amidst the backwaters. You may opt to dine while on the cruise and even stay the night.

Apart from the outdoor activities to be enjoyed in the serene backwaters of Kumarakom, a leisurely visit to the beach is a must. At the beach you can indulge in thrilling and extreme activities – from water skiing, wind surfing, parasailing to more laid-back one like boating, sunbathing and swimming. The best time to visit Kumarakom beach is in winter when the scorching heat takes a backseat.  The beach is home to many hotels and resorts that offer many water sporting opportunities.
