Kumbalangi Tourism Village, Kochi

 

Kumbalangi Integrated Tourism Village Project is a unique initiative to transform the tiny island of Kumbalangi into a model fishing village and tourism spot. It is the first of its kind in India and is located in Kochi. It is blessed with many natural wonders and the people who visit are treated to many a rare treat.

Kumbalangi is surrounded by backwaters.  Chinese Fishing Nets cover the island and the village boasts of rich aquatic life. An array of mangroves separate land from water and provide for a good breeding ground for prawns, crabs, oysters and small fish.

Palluruthy nearby is coming up in a similar manner. This hamlet provides a close glimpse of the simple lifestyle of villagers who still live by traditions that have been passed down for centuries.

Kalagramam is an artist’s village that displays fishing equipment and handicrafts. Bait-fishing is extremely popular among tourists here. Many houses in the village are homestays and visitors can book their stay directly with homestay operators.
