Kumbalangi village is surrounded by backwaters and the village is particularly famous for its eco-tourism activities such as Coir Making, Crab Farming, Fishing, Chinese Nets and many more. This village is blessed with many natural wonders and the people who visits are treated very well by the locals , there are few home stay options too in the village.

We were thinking about to visit a heritage and then decide to travel Kochin. When reached at the port, we were welcomed by the representative of the Globe Travel. After the with the help of their guide we visited Vaikom village and I can say Mahadev Temple was just an art of beauty and faith. Materials made by villagers was also one of a kind of beauty, the ropes made of dried coconut was so good. Also we got a chance to interact with local villagers and they invited us inside to their house and we have a lunch with them. Vaikom village was full of diversity and traditions.

I visited the Vaikom village with my girlfriend with the help of Globes travels tour package. I can say about this village that, it is full of activities and diversities. Centre of attraction of or tour was the Mahadev Temple at Vaikom which is one of the most famous and oldest temple of loard Shiva and the beauty of temple was just amazing.
On the trip we get the opportunity to enjoy with local water lives like fishes, water snake, tortoises, frogs and many more. While walking through the village, we stops at Khadi Waving Centre and looked at the hand made products by the villagers. My girlfriend also bought a hand waved sari made of silk. Overall the trip was so amazing and beautiful just as the beauty if village, at last thank to the great support to Globes Travel.
