Village Experience in Kerala

Tour listed by Kence Georgey
About this tour

Along the paddy fields and swaying coconut palms, one of the streams of river Meenachil makes her silent journey to the back waters of Kumarakam. And there awaits one best kept secrets of the back water experience…. Riverdale Villa. A cosy home with three bed rooms, lot of sun and shine to soak into, and above all one gets initiated into curative village experience of the backwaters. The surprises include fresh water fishing in the river, canoe rides, best home cooked Syrian Christian cuisine and the simplicity of an entire village. The Riverdale is a family home of Binoy and Sheena and their only son Thomachan and their parents….. Binoy moved from Idukki district of Kerala in the early 90s, the hilly western ghats to the backwaters after his pre-college as an assistant at Mozart Gallery, helping Mr. Somu Aymanam one of the famous water colour artists and home designers of Kerala. As he slowly got used to the waterscapes of Kumarakam and its village life he also got in love with Sheena and then it has changed their life. Shena’s perents belong to Kottayam: Mr. Mathew and Anna are from Syrian Jacobite Christian traditions. Mathew is a trained fresh water fishing expert and he knows the palpitations of the river, the ebbs and tides of the canals as he is an encyclopaedia about fresh water fishing. Both Anna and Sheena have great hands on local Syrian Christian cuisine! It will be a sin if one does not taste their delicacies and curries during the stay at Riverdale.
