A quaint island in the waters of Kumarakom is the artistic Pathiramanal island, meaning "the sands of night". The island is a haven for bird watchers to catch a glimpse of unique varieties of birds. This backwaters hub is a favoured stop by destination from the mainland with a memorable boat ride.
The amazing water front, ambient backwaters, calm coconut groves coupled with the native sky residents of the islet will leave you speechless. The scenic beauty surrounding the island is stunning and a walk is sufficient to take in all the views- the island is so small. It is a popular stop by station during a backwater cruise of the vast network of criss crossed rivers and lagoons. This is the perfect chance to explore the waterside paradise of birds.
