Ezhumanthuruth Offers Packages to Experience Rural Life

The tourism package programme organized by Responsible Tourism (RT) Mission at Ezhumanthuruth village in Kottayam district has started functioning. Through the package, tourists can take shikara boats along the Kariyar stream and experience the rural life.

The boats will take the visitors to the tourism units run by the RT Mission through Ezhumanthuruth and Mundar. Travellers will get a chance to experience rural life through ethnic cuisine and cultural programmes. The visitors can even make ethnic cuisine on their own, and the residents will guide them through it.

Visitors can try their hand in local handicrafts such as coir spinning, mat weaving or even fishing. 

According to Mr. K. Rupesh Kumar, Coordinator, RT Mission, the package involves massive local participation and seeks to maintain a balance between the guests and the local community.

The local bodies of Neendoor and Arpookkara too have kick-started similar programmes.
