 Cochin - Fisherman Village Tour

Description

Embark on a relaxing drive off Cochin to Chellanam, a fishing hamlet in the outskirts of Old Kochi. The fishing harbour at Chellanam where a large number of fishing vessels come calling every day, is a testimony to man’s fighting spirit to make a living out of sea. For the sake of their livelihood the fishermen risk their lives in small fishing boats, the catch is then hauled over shore where the auctioneers take over and once sold, it changes hands with the trader who has bought it. He then resells it to the retail fish-sellers who buy it from them and transfer it to their respective aluminum vessels, buckets, bamboo baskets, plastic tubs or thermal packs as the case maybe. The catch is then briskly transported on human heads, old rusty bicycles, or mopeds, pickups, autos, trucks and so on to make its way out from the harbour to the local markets or the fisheries for further processing. This morning you will witness activities of the above nature. Beyond the sights try to strike a conversation with the locals. Following the action at the harbour, drive via the neighbouring Kumbalanghi village stopping by the Chinese fishing nets, fish farms, a church enroute and a Tea Stall.
