Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary

The 14-acre sanctuary is home to countless indigenous species of birds as well as many migratory birds from Siberia. Commonly sighted visitors here are the Siberian stork, egret, darter, heron and teal. The Pathiramanal Island is another great place for bird-watching.

Backwaters

A trip to Alleppey is incomplete without a cruise on Lake Vembanad. Kettuvallams or houseboats are easily available for hire. Some homestays have their own fleet of houseboats, which they rent out to guests. Depending on time-constraints, you can opt for an hour-long tour or overnight stays on the houseboats. During off season a short cruise will cost about Rs. 1000 but the price can go up by 5 times in the peak season.

Snake boat races

Though races are organised all through July and August, the most impressive is the Nehru Trophy, which is held in Alleppey, on the 2nd Saturday of August. The race only lasts for a few minutes but its memory is eternal.

Recitals

Kathakali and Mohinattam are Kerala's most well known dance forms. Their recitals can be seen in many folk centres. Another ancient Indian art-form that's recently gained popularity is the Kalaripayattu. It is a martial art, which is enormously hard to perfect and requires years of strenuous training, which usually begins for a child at the age of six or seven.

Ayurvedic Treatments

Ayurveda uses very simple, easy to understand principles, to determine individual constitution and the imbalances in it. It considers the individual as a whole connected with the world rather than looking at the body as some kind of a machine with different parts and functions. The great sages ofseers who developed this system could see beyond the physical framework.

Alleppey beach

This is one of the most popular spots in Alleppy. Old, colonial buildings line the shore. The pier is more than 140 years old and a children's park is a popular family picnic spot. At the Vijaya Beach Park activities like boating, a toy train for children and bicycles are available.
