Kumarakom is a breezy backwater fishing village on the shores of the Vemanad backwaters which is spread over four districts of central Kerala. A clear reflection of the term “God own country” is what Kumarakom is all about. The country side ambience and the closeness to the nature bodies make it a place away from the busy world. Kumarakom is an artificial extension of land to the backwaters. The combination of canals streams and bunds make it ideal for houseboat cruising and fishing.
Kerala (India). 'Kerala’s all about the water: days of languorous drifting on the backwaters around Alappuzha (Alleppey), canoe tours from Kollam and bambooraft tours in Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/india/kerala
