Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary,vembanad Lake And Pathiramanal Island - Review
A birdie’s paradise, this sanctuary on the banks of Vembanad Lake hosts thousands of migratory birds - stork, egret, darter, heron and teal. They come form the Himalayas, and they come from even further north than that, such as the Siberian Crane. Parrot, lark, flycatcher, waterfowl, cuckoo, owl, cormorant, moorhen, and brahminy kite make up the rest of the species you might catch. The 10 acre Pathiramanal(meaning ‘Nightsand’) in the middle of the lake is another good place to catch bird. But it can only be accessed by boat.Though the main migrations happen for the winter between November and May, summer months such as June and August also see lively population for the breeding season.
As for the lake itself, Vembanad is the longest lake in India, and the best way to enjoy it is on houseboat. It makes Kerala’s famous backwaters come alive like nothing else can. Check the Kumarakom City Page on how to acquire a houseboat. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kumarakom itinerary 3 days.

Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary,Vembanad Lake And Pathiramanal Island, Kumarakom Reviews
Its a nice place if you are a nature lover. You have to walk around 2km through the forest to reach the observatory, no other transportation is available. So please don't take small kids or elderly persons to here. Its a mud path which is only for walk so baby stroller cannot be used. The place is well conserved so please don't carry disposable plastic products with you. There is an entry ticket which will permit you to this place for just 2 hours. So be quick and enjoy the nature.
The long walk inside sanctuary to get the sight birds was good. Old people will find difficult due to long stretch. The viewing tower has to be maintained well. The steel structure of tower has many corroded parts. The journey was reward personally for me. We recommend shoes for this trip
Must visit at on-season otherwise there won't be any birds except one or two. It's like mini forest, mangroves. We have to walk more than 5km and if you are lucky you can get boating at cheap rate from the locals. Foreigner comes with binocular for bird watching. Best place for newly weds, they can hold their hands and walk along with chit chat conversations and enjoying the beauty simultaneously.
very serene place. Early morning hours is the best time to go. It is best to have a guide along. Check the time of the opening before you go. Catch a local boat from the canal point. He will take you to the backwaters and you will see many birds of all kinds. Beware of the mosquitoes in the boat. Do not keep your legs bare.
Nice place with loads of trees. Entry ticket will cost you 50 bucks. Birds not visible to your eyes. But it's a beautiful natural place with lot of trees and its nearby Kumarakom backwaters. If you are travelling along with elder people who can't walk, then this place is not for you. No battery cars for physically challenged/senior citizens. You need to walk atleast 2-3 kilometers from the entrance. 2-3 kilometers is just one way. So you will be walking between 4-6 kilometers in total.
