The famed Vembanad Lake is a luxury picnic spot and the trip to Kottayam is incomplete without it. This stretches miles across and harbors organisms peculiar. The shore is brisk with gathering shells. One can also visit the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, home of some varieties of exotic birds.

The boundaries of Kottayam are
South: Alappuzha and Pathanamthitta
West: Vembanad LakeThis place is best visited during the months of August and March.
Since the second Chera Empire Kottayam has been a pl ace of importance. Maharaja Marthandaverma had a great influence on the place as a ruler; he conquered the Vembolinadu that his predecessor established. Kottayam is situated 76Km from Cochin. It is around 2.45 hours travel from Cochin Air Port.
Kumarakom jutts into the Vembanad Lake as if it appears to be a peninsula. Lagoons, canals and waterways are geographically carved-out as the fresh water lake dents into the mainland. The ready availability of house boats, traditional country crafts, boats and canoes make it an exemplary location with unmatched avenues in water- tourism. To a lover of tastes, it is great news that tiger prawns, crabs, Karimeen or pearl spotted fish prawns are available everywhere. The Monsoon season imparts lush greenery to the place.
