HolidayIQ Traveller Abhilash says, “They charge around Rs 350 per head for a ride on the elephants and the rider will take photos of you at three or four stops. The half a kilometre ride takes around 20 to 30 minutes.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Priyam Goyal says, “Kumarakom is a great place for bird watching. We saw many kingfishers, drongos, siberian cranes, pheasants and flycatchers, but the best thing was when we watched a snake head darter hunt a fish out of the lake."
