Kumarakom is a tourist village in Kottayam district, Kerala. It is an unbelievably beautiful paradise of mangrove forests, emerald green paddy fields and coconut groves interspersed with enchanting waterways and canals adorned with white lilies. It is a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake in Kerala, with a collection of branched bodies all lined by beautiful, thick, lush and peaceful greenery. A large number of coconut trees line the horizon to add the perfect tropical touch to the landscape.

The history about Kumarkom is little bit strange. In 1878, George Alfred Baker, a missionary had set out for clearing the mangrove and planting coconut trees. Baker was so amazed by the beauty of Kumarakom that he decided to make it his home and worked for the development of this region. The lake is a delightful picnic spot and a fast developing backwater tourism destination in India, providing boating, fishing and sightseeing.

Kumarakom is a protected area for indigenous and migratory birds. The main attraction in this area is the beautiful Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary spread across fourteen acres. It is a favorite haunt of migratory birds such as egrets, darters, herons, teal, waterfowl, cuckoo, wild duck and migratory birds like the Siberian stork. Boat trips offer visitors the chance to get closer to the habitats of these birds without destroying anything of their delicate ecosystem.
