Sunrise over Ashtamudi Lake

Sunrise over Ashtamudi Lake

Ashtamudi Lake makes Kollam district one of the most sought after backwaters destinations of Kerala. “Ashtamudi” in the local language means eight branches/channels (Ashta means eight and mudi means branch).Lake Ashtamudi is in fact a fusion of eight small lakes and is popularly known as the gateway to the backwaters of Kerala.

The vibrant greenery of coconut groves & palm trees that dot the lakeside and the famous Chinese fishing nets laid along the waterways bestow the landscape an oriental look- which makes Ashtamudi an incredible experience that no traveller would want to miss on his visit to Kerala.
