Kumbalangi, a small village near Cochin, rose to the limelight when it received the distinction of being India’s first model responsible tourism village. We don’t have any set itineraries here but there are tons of activities you can indulge in that are both fascinating and experiential. Here is a sampler of what you can experience at Kumbalangi.
Crab Farming: Ever wondered what it would feel like to hold a crab in your hand? The crab catchers at Kumbalangi will help you experience this first hand. Take your pick from green or red crabs at the well-maintained crab farm here and see how you fare.
Operating a Chinese Fishing Net: The image of the Chinese fishing nets against a golden sunset is a popular image synonymous with Kerala, particularly Cochin. Now, at Kumbalangi, you can get hands on and learn how to operate a Chinese fishing net. With the help of electric lights the fishermen attract prawns and fish to the nets and the two people who operate the nets work in tandem.
Making a Beedi: Learn how to not just roll a beedi but also to make one.
Catching Fish with Bare Hands: Follow the women into the river and try and catch some fish with your hands as they do.
Coir Making: Watch and participate in the entire process of coir making, right from the de-husking of the coconut to the making of the yarn.
