A Trip To Kerala - Kumarakom Day one

For the final week in this mega BM we have three days to post and the theme is Bloggers choice. I choose travel as my topic for this week. This week I am not going to post any recipes but I will share my some of my holiday trips. Today I am going to take you all to Kumarakom a popular destination in Kottayam district in Kerala a southern state of India. Kumarakom is famous for it's backwater tourism it is in the backdrop of the vembanad lake, one of the largest freshwater lake in Kerala. Kumarakom is well known for it's houseboats and also the world famous boat race. And one more most popular attraction is the Bird sanctuary. We were there for three day in Kumarakom. For the first day we were in the hotel, there are many activities in the hotel like cycling, boating and a open air theater where they perform cultural  programs like Kathakali and mohiniattam. All above this all activities the nature is so beautiful and very pleasent. Let's go for a pictorial tour to Kumarakom...
