(3.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy lush greenery and tranquility of Munroe Island, an archipelago of eight islands at the confluence of the Ashtamudi Lake and the Kallada River. Named by a British colonel who abolished slavery on the island in 1835 and built canals, the island makes a great retreat for nature lovers with its combination of waterways and diverse vegetation. Watch fishermen push their long traditional boats and see women make ropes from coconut fiber. The island makes a good spot for bird watching with many migratory birds. Take a boat tour and watch mangrove plants and coconut trees from the water. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Kollam holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Munroe Island and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The landscapes are beautiful and the people are very hospitable. Quiet walk in the dugout for more than two hours with Vishnouqui makes you discover nature, cultures of shrimp and the use of coconut fiber. It is bathed in the Lake to a place or a great river is throwing there in the garden of a hotel: Lake no river or we had a pleasant stay in tranquility and nature.

  • After both trips by canoe, Munroe and the backwaters of alleppey, think that it is more worth the second if you can only do one, to be more representative of the traditional life, that if the longer than 6 hours. Said this, taking time to both make them because are different, the of Munroe is more uninhabited, channels still more narrow, also has its charm.
