About The Activity

Get a closer look at the village life in Kerala through a backwater village tour . Ride on a bullock cart. Meet with the locals and explore their lifestyle. Enjoy homemade food made by them and take away traditional recipes. Chill with the adorable naughty kids who love to entertain.
Imagine a labyrinth of backwaters with emerald waters, luscious mangroves, queues of coconut palms, bright blue skies and in the midst of all this, a cluster of little islands.
Welcome to Kumarakom, a land crafted jointly by mankind and Mother Nature herself.
An enchanting backwater destination, the village of Kumarakom is a cluster of little islands on the Vembanad Lake. The land offers visitors myriad options for entertainment of which the most engaging is a taste of the Village Life Experience (VLE).
Renowned as the VLE package, this allows travellers to get a flavour of rural life in Kerala.  The direct interaction with local culture, traditions and livelihood activities are all exquisite experiences that are sure to add meaning to the lives of each traveller. 
Carved out of the innocence and beauty of rural life in Kerala, the Village Life Experience is focused on the local communities. It is the locals who guide travelers through their village thereby making the experience more natural and heartwarming. It brings home additional income to the participating families thereby uplifting the locals. It is a part of the Responsible Tourism (RT) initiative that encompasses all forms of tourism and seeks to minimise negative economic, environmental and social impacts.  Kumarakom is where RT was first successfully implemented. Crafted with the best interests of the local community in mind, the VLE initiative enhances the wellbeing of the locals and also makes positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage, and maintenance of the world’s diversity.  
A cruise along the gentle waters of the great backwaters of Kerala is enchanting in itself but add to it the experience of coconut palm frond weaving, screw pine making, broom making, fishing with the locals, a visit to local toddy shops, shell mining with the locals and much more to make sure your trip to Kumarakom is worth a lifetime of tales and memories.
