If you hear Kerala, you think backwaters. But, very few people know that Kerala can offer you the blissful experience of witnessing the backwaters apart from Alleppy as well. Kumarakom backwaters can also provide an amazing experience which you will cherish for a lifetime! If you are visiting Kerala for a longer duration, choose one of the Kerala tour packages which include Kumarakom.
I visited Kumarakom recently and was endeared by the surreal beauty of backwaters. When I visited Kumarakom, retreat monsoon was at its peak. The gentle showers had enhanced the beauty of the view. Raindrops trickled down the boat’s roof, falling on the wooden edges, eventually assimilating with waters below.
The mild humming of the boat engine and cheerful chirps of evening birds were the only sounds I heard. The lavish resorts and cozy home stays stood at the bank, looking elegant. Gradually, the boat navigated away from the resorts and slowly, no hint of civilization was visible. A waft of air played made our boat sway gently. The showers had now stopped and the clouds started to scatter. Far in the distant horizon, bright shades of orange and pink appeared, resembling an act of a magician. A magician that conjured up colorful patterns out of a gloomy backdrop. The magician here surely wanted to entice the audience and keep them rapt in attention. I bowed down to the sheer brilliance of the act by the great Magician, God!
