Kumbalanghi Village Tour

Kumbalanghi is a lush green village in Cochin. It was declared as the first model fisheries and tourism village of India. Most of the villagers in Kumbalangi are engaged in agriculture and fishing.  A slew of activities is offered to guests at Kallancherry Island nearby.

Chinese nets were introduced by the Chinese during the 15th century; at Kallanchery Island, Chinese nets are still operated usually during the night. You might want to try your hand at learning the ropes of coir making here. Do you know that coir yarn can be used to make carpets and that carpets are made directly from coir fibres as well?  Or would you prefer exploring the intricacies of crab farming? Did you know that the brackish water of Kerala is home to both the red crab and the green crab? For many of the inhabitants of Kallanchery Island, clam meat processing is their livelihood, as clams thrive in the brackish water too. Did you know their shells are used for making white cement, cement-based paints and fertilizers?
