The Women of Kathakali - An Exclusive Interaction in Kochi

The Women of Kathakali - An Exclusive Interaction in Kochi

star-5

Kathakali has been an all-male art form, with even women characters being portrayed by men. On this tour we meet members of India's first All Womens Kathakali group who broke through the male bastion, excelled in the art and made a mark for themselves. From being dismissed as a fad that would not last long they went on to win the President of India's medal of honour in the year 2017. On this tour the women artistes share with us their inspiring journey of starting the group while alongside explaining the different elements of this fascinating art form- its stories, language, costumes, music, training, mythology, et al. The interaction ends with a brief lecture-demonstration without make-up or costume. The tour is designed to be an informal one, it flows along naturally as a conversation between visitor and artiste, and last for about 2 hrs. The interaction is arranged at the private residence of the women artiste(s) which is located in Kochi, Kerala.

Fort Cochin Cycling Tour

Fort Cochin Cycling Tour

After a short safety briefing, you will start your day’s cycling through the narrow lanes and spice markets moving towards Mattancherry. The architecture along the busy streets in this enclave is very clearly European, with fine houses built by wealthy British traders of the colonial era, and the Dutch cottages with split farmhouse doors. We have a few surprise stops en-route which makes this a very exciting ride. After you reach Mattancherry, you will cycle via Mattancherry Palace, Jew street and the synagogue. Then, you resume cycling and move towards the Santa Cruz Basilica. This is a very attractive church constructed in the gothic style and was originally built by the Portuguese. From there you will pedal towards the Princess Street which has a quaint old-world charm to it. As you approach the end of the tour you arrive at the unique Chinese Fishing nets whose history and drama are remarkable.

What people are saying about On the Ground in Kochi

star-5
From Cochin Port: Backwaters by Houseboat & Chinese Nets
"It's a MUST if you want to see what life is really like in this part of India. Great guide and driver (how does he do it?) Air Conditioned mini bus from the cruise terminal. The journey took over an hour and a half on busy roads and populated villages but what an experience. Stopped to see an elephant at a Buddhist temple and then boarded the House boat with two other couples. Amazing two hours on the river seeing wildlife, countryside and people washing and bathing. Lovely local dishes served for lunch before setting off for the journey back calling at Cochin Fort area and the Chinese fishing nets. It's a must do and big thanks to the guide Ram ? driver, boat crew and Viator for a fabulous day."..."

"Amazing trip, the guide was fantastic and the boat and food onboard was lovely. The two men on the boat who prepared our food were fantastic. The views are stunning and I definitely recommend. The travel time is long (1.5 hours there and just over 2 hours back due to traffic) however it was a comfortable journey in an air conditioned mini bus."..."

Half Day Village Backwater Country Boat Cruise : Group Tour from Fort Cochin
"I believe that was the best way to kill the guilt of not going to Alleppy and enjoy the Kerala backwaters. Coz we could experience that in Kochin itself. They provided pickup and drop facilities from our place in Fort Kochi in an AC bus to a place called Viakom. Everyone was very polite and professional. The itinerary provided guided tour of mesmerising Backwaters near Kochi in non mechanised boats, literally beautiful boats. It was an exhilarating experience seeing the boat (shikara) moving slow in calm waters and manoeuvering in narrow lush canals with greenery all around. The calm and serene sorroundings with only sounds of birds chirping had calming and relaxing effects. Our guide Vinod was wonderful and professional and took us for a visit at local village in backwaters to experience coir making and shed making from palm tree leaves. Recommended the same tour to other people as well and they thanked me for the wonderful suggestion. The trip culminated with delicious Keralan Vegetarian lunch. Recommended for sure."..."
