During this tour we experience both the village and some historical monuments of kochi. Kumbalangy is an island-village on the outskirts of Cochin city, and is the first model tourism village. The main occupation in Kumbalangy is fishing. Groves of mangroves separate land from water providing a breeding ground for prawns, crabs, oysters and small fishes.
