The Vembanad lake, Kumarakom ( 16 Km from Kottayam town ):

Kottayam is a vast network of rivers and canals which empty into the great expanse of water called the Vembanad Lake. The lake, an enchanting picnic sport and a fast developing back water tourism destination, provides boating, fishing and sightseeing experiences that are truly exhilarating. The Kumarakom Tourist Village offer house boat cruises and holiday packages. The serene lake comes alive during Onam with a spectacular water regatta - the snake boat races. It is indeed amazing to watch oarsmen, at least a hundred in one boat, slice their way through the waters to the fast rhythm of their own full throated singing

Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary ( 16 Km from Kottayam town ):

Located on the banks of the Vembanad Lake, the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, an ornithologist's paradise, is a favorite haunt of migratory birds like Siberian stroke, egret, darter, heron and teal. Other common varieties like the woodpecker, skylark, crane, water hens and parrots can also be spotted here. A cruise along the Vemband lake is the best way to experience the sanctuary.

Pathiramanal, an mesmerizing Island on the lake, can be accessed by boat from here. This island on the back waters is the home to many rare varieties of migratory birds. According to the mythology a young Brahmin dived in to the lake to perform his evening ablutions and the water made way for land to rise from below.
