Kumarakom Night Fishing
Kumarakom is a serene fishing village on Vembanad Lake, in the backwaters of Kerala in India. Here, many fishermen prefer fishing at night as the cooler waters allow fishes to come closer to the surface, making them easier to catch. As the sun sets, take a canoe out with a Kumarakan fisherman to learn about the art of night fishing and hear his stories.
