For the second day my trip continues in Kerala to Houseboat in Vembanad Lake. Vembanad lake is one of the longest lake in India and largest lake in Kerala. The lake is bordered by three districts, Alappuzha, Kottayam and Ernakulam. The lake is situated at sea level but separated sea by a island. Vembanad lake is connected by many canals to other lakes in the state. But the most popular location on the shores of the lake is Kumarakom a very famous tourist destination in Kerala. the very beautiful Bird sanctuary is located on the east coast of the lake, a must visit place but early in the morning

Next day morning at 7:30 A.M. after our breakfast with delicious Kerala Appams and estue( I couldn't take pictures of the breakfast because we are already lat to reach the houseboat:(... ) a,d we headed to house boat.
