About Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary,vembanad Lake And Pathiramanal Island, Kumarakom

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.

  • It's really calm and peaceful , there are multiple watch towers. It's lush green and clean. Best time to watch bird is in morning or in late afternoon. If you are not that patient you may not be able to watch the birds. You can also rent punting boat to drift along the streams that run along the sanctuary.

  • Big thanks to bird sanctuary staffs. They informed us that there are no birds now and this (November) isn't season even though the board says season time is July to March. Entrance ticket: 50 rupees Parking ticket separate.. 15 rupees for two wheeler and higher for bigger vehicles. We can either go inside in private boat (separate charge for it) or you can walk inside the sanctuary. Two Kms one side

  • Preserved the nature in the natural way. Almost 2km of walking through a forest is absolutely amazing. certainly not for elderly and children. Taking guide service would make the walk interesting. There are swamps and nature trails where you can go walk and observe nature, including some viewing towers.

  • Bird Sanctuary is spread across 14 acres and would take around 2 hours to stroll across the premises. Best time to visit is between June & August. Entry fee is 50 per head and parking fee for car will be 25/-
