Bird watching & boating @ vembanadu lake, Kumarakom

Boating through the vembanadu lake and water channels in Kumarakom, the backwater tourism village of Kerala. Reaching the bird-sanctuary you can get the tickets for boating in KTDC boats from the counter at the front. 

Remember you have options of either not to go boating and take the ticket to enter the bird-sanctuary for walking or to take the boating ticket which includes the entry pass to walk through the bird sanctuary. We took a 8 seater boat which coasted around INR 600/- which lasted half an hour journey through  the backwaters.

Two seasons for bird watching is here in the sanctuary. One is from November to February when the migratory birds visits the place. The other bird watching season is from June to August when you may witness the local birds here. The siberian migratory siberian cranes are said to be a not to miss attraction when you visit here.
