Welcome to God’s own Country, upon arrival our representative will receive you in the Cochin International Airport and proceed to Kumarakom, a property lying on the banks of Lake Vembanad, wrapped in the magnificent scenery. Engage in what the locals master in – pluck huge coconuts and learn de-husking, breaking and make them prepare tasty dishes, flavoured with exotic spices. Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, a house to thousands and more of species of birds, can also be contained in the itinerary. Today your stay would be at Kumarakom.
Following breakfast, embark on an enchanting overnight backwater cruise in traditionally decorated houseboats. While cruising into these floating luxury villas, let your eyes pay for the rare and the odd – skim past Chinese fishing nets, bowed down paddy areas, neighbourhood inhabitants engaged in making coir goods, rustic homes, ancient temples along with swaying coconut groves. Food will be served onboard. Today your stay would be at Houseboat.
After breakfast, check out from the houseboat drive to Varkala, on arrival check-in into hotel. Enjoy the day watching a sunset or swimming in the scenic Varkala Beach. Varkala’s most important beach, Papanasam is long and golden with a backdrop of red laterite cliffs where recovery mineral water springs forth. Today your stay has been pre-booked at Varkala.
Varkala is flanked by endless beaches in the north and south. Varkala’s Temple Junction is home to the old Janardhanaswamy temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu which was mostly rebuilt in the 13th century. Today your stay has been booked at Varkala.
After morning breakfast, move to Trivandrum International airport for the flight back home with sweet memories of your wonderful Holiday spent at the God’s Own Country.
