Shikaras at Trivandrum: Cruise Boats from Kadinamkulam to Akathumuri to be launched

Kerala Tourism is all set to offer cruises for tourists from Kadinamkulam to Akathumuri by developing a backwater tourism circuit linking Kadinamkulam, Anchuthengu, and Akathumuri lakes.

Starting from Perumathura, 29 km north of the capital city, the 3 hour  cruise will cover Anchuthengu, Kayikkara, Ponnumthuruthu (Golden Island), Panayilkadavu, and  Akathumuri. The iconic shikaras of Dal Lake in Srinagar will mostly be used for the cruises that will take three hours to cover the Kadinamkulam-Akathumuri stretch, Minister for Tourism Kadakampally Surendran said.



The boats resembling the Shikaras of Dal lake which can accommodate 20 tourists will be used for this purpose.

Floating jetties for the use of these boars will be set up at Perumathura, Anchuthengu, Kayikkara, Ponnumthuruthu, Panayilkadavu, and Akathumuri.
