Day 3 Alleppey to Kumarakom
When we were planning our trip, many people suggested Munnar too but we wanted to only do backwaters on this trip. We thought of planning Munnar separately. But if you have 5-7 days, you can include Munnar also in your itinerary which is a 4 hours’ drive from Cochin.
We started in the morning for Kumarakom from Alleppey which is a just 1-hour drive. We pre-booked KTDC Waterscapes in Kumarakom as heard good things about it from our friends. It is located at Vembanad Lake and the resort has some beautiful cottages just opposite the lake. It is set among coconut groves and one can see a panoramic view of the backwaters.
Beautiful Sunset at Kumarakom
There is a sunset point in the resort, just next to the lake. Sunset was mesmerizing and something which we have never seen before. It was a wonderful experience to watch the sunset at the centre point of the resort. Different colours such as red, pink, orange and yellow make the sunset a very beautiful sight. Some amazing pics of Sunset follows
Kumarakom is also famous for its backwaters and beautiful houseboat experience. We didn’t go in houseboat here as we already enjoyed the houseboat experience in Alleppey.
One can choose between Alleppey and Kumarakom when planning a trip to backwaters. Kumarakom has a very famous bird sanctuary which was just next to our resort. Next part will be the last part and I will be covering the famous bird sanctuary and Cochin.
