The opening and closing timings of the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary are 0600 hours (6 a.m.) and 1700 hours (5 p.m.) for all days round the year. I took an afternoon trip to this place and walked at a brisk pace to cover the entire cobbled pathway in roughly under 3 hours time; however, the best time for all travelers cum ornithologists (whether amateur or professional) is to venture first thing in the morning i.e., right at 6 a.m. dot sharp in order to get a "bird's eye view" of different birds. As for my visit, I could only get a glimpse of various types of egrets and herons by being perched on top of watch tower #2, as watch tower #1 was closed. The sound of water lapping by the shores of both river Kavanar, Meenachil, as well as Lake Vembanad is indeed pleasing to the ears, as well as the sight of the vast expanse of water interspersed in between by the plying of country made boats or houseboats once in a while.

The long well paved tracks in the sanctuary is worth a visit. Quite a few migratory birds could be watched, very serene, with vembanad lake surrounding it.

If you wanna see birds you have to be an early bird yourself. Its certainly worth the trouble of getting up early. This parc is also nice just to take a walk, few kilometers in middle of nature...very relaxing.
