Whizz through the narrow tracks over the bunds bordering Meenachil River, paddy fields, and numerous steady wooden bridges along the way! This thrilling mode of transport - and sport - also allows you to see the otherwise water-locked villages and interact with local villagers. To top it all off, keep your eyes peeled for the migratory birds that have made a temporary home in Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary.
