About this activity

Kayaking in Mangrove Forest of Paravur Backwaters Kollam

You’ll be accompanied by a professional guide who will enlighten you about the right techniques and help navigate your way.

Itinerary

<span>Start</span> Set off on a 30 minutes Kayaking trip

  • After about 30 to 45 minutes of paddling from the departure point, you will approach the Railway Bridge. We will navigate past the bridge, setting our sights on a quaint island. Our short recess will be at the Chithan Thampuran Temple Island.
  • From there, a 45 to 60-minute paddle to the east will lead us to the lush Mangrove Forest Island. We'll venture into the Mangrove Forest, navigating through petite canals surrounded by mangroves.
  • After exiting the Mangrove Forest, we'll set our course back. As we pass the Railway Bridge again, we aim for the Black Devil Snail Sandbar, a unique sand flat whose form and size morph due to varying wind, tide, and current conditions. This spot is perfect for a break, or even a swim. However, for safety, please refrain from approaching the Spillway Regulator, which drains water from the lake to the sea.
  • A 25 to 30-minute paddle from here will bring us back to Syzygy, marking the end of our journey.
  • Before you head back to your hotel or home, feel free to freshen up or change your clothes.
