Programme

This journey programme starts with a 45 minutes journey by Car/Coach to MUNROE ISLAND and 3-hour village backwater cruise on a typical country craft through the narrow canals.

En route Covered

Munroe Island : This beautiful small village is surrounded by Ashtamudi lake and Kallada river. Blessed with a number of criss-cross canals and zigzag water channels, this Island plays a host to so many migratory birds from various countries around the world. You can watch birds such as King fisher, Woodpecker, Egret, Bee-eater, Crow pheasant, and Paddy Birds. There is yet another rare chance to see the traditional Indian spice plants such as Pepper, Nutmeg and Cloves.

Coir making is a home industry to almost all the village living people. It is very interesting to watch the coir making by the village ladies with the help of weaving Wheels. They make the coir ropes by hand. In addition to this, on the way, you can see the process of extracting coconut oil from the "copra" [dried coconut]. Among the routine traditional engagements, duck, poultry farm and prawn breeding are common in all houses.


Fare Rs.300.00 per Person including carfare and village cruise. Special tariff available for group booking.

Refreshment Fresh Tender Coconut Juice will be served as complimentary drink.
