    Kumbalangi
    Stop: 4 hours -
    Enjoy a tuk tuk ride through Kumbalangi, a model fishing village and tourism spot located in the south-west of Kochi and surrounded by the backwaters of Vembanad lake. The major attraction of Kumbalangi are the fishing activities and the Chinese fishing nets cover the whole island. The land here is separated from the water by a wide array of mangroves and this provides a breeding ground for many small fish as well as prawns and oysters. Kumbalangi offers you an inside peek into the rural life of the villagers and it is a must see destination as it has been transformed to an eco-tourism village, making it a first of its kind in the country. Enjoy the engaging activities of the villagers as they prepare coconut milk punch, weave rugs, catch crabs and fish, and also process shellfish and coconut fibres. You can also witness some unique sights such as ola medayal (making roof coverings using special coconut leaves) and making fishing nets. You will have a delicious lunch with local specialties in an open-air area where you can suck in the cool air. Kumbalangi tour village would be incomplete without a Kolkali performance, a local traditional dance in which the dancers move in a circle. You will return back to the Port after a refreshing tour in Kumbalangi.
