Very Interesting technique

This place is as natural as it comes. no modifications or elaborate set ups. a bit strong for the nose due to all the fresh sea creatures around you.

Awesome to see. And to try (against a tips). Very very big nets! During the day, you can see how it's works. How they do and catch some fishes. Go and have a walk along the sea. Interesting.

This place is best for enjoying sunsets.!! And of course on Dec 31st Eve. :) The breeze, Chinese nets, walkway, chairs and of course the ships passing thru channel is amazing experience and a must watch for every traveller.

Cantilevered fishing nets provide a unique spectacular distinction to Cochin. These can be seen at the inlet of the sea near Fort Cochin. These are historical as gift from Kublai Khan. The cantilever nets operate with balancing counter weights. Great to watch.

A very interesting sight--- the nets don't always catch much fish but the anticipation is part of the charm. They are situated in the heart of fort Cochin , so are very easy to find, it's as much fun watching the sea birds trying to help themselves from the nets. This is a good place to take some nice photos.

Not to miss if you are in Kochi. We can purchase the freshly caught fish and even get them cooked for us there itself.

These working tidal nets have been operating in Kochi for at least 400 years, and probably much longer. When you first approach these, you will see a littered beach and the nets, and you'll probably be nonplussed. But this is a working thing that you need to look at up close to appreciate. Mechanically, they are marvelous works of engineering.... More
