Meet the people of the lake
The Vembanad is home to a great number of people who have congregated here over time and many generations, giving birth to a unique culture and set of traditions that is distinct to these parts. Many of these derive their sustenance from the lake through a variety of activities that include fishing, agriculture, boat building, coir rope production, handicrafts and tourism.
The cruise will let you meet and interact closely with local people. You can see fishermen and shell harvesters at work, paddy being sowed or harvested and exchange words with native toddy tappers as they clamber up and down coconut trees as they have been doing for centuries. On a lucky day you could be invited to sample a few glasses of freshly tapped toddy - quite something to look forward to!
