I bought a cycle for cycling, and a camera for photography. Created this blog for expressing myself. After thousands of photographs, and around 1000 miles of cycling in and around the beautiful Kadamakudy islands, the dots started connecting themselves. People started contacting me to know more about Kadamakudy islands. Then we started walking / cycling together photographing the birds and the natural beauty of this place. While this blog started appearing in the top of google searches for ‘Kadamakudy’ , it helped to make otherwise less known Kadamakudy start appearing on the tourist maps of Kerala.
Kadamakudy islands comprises of a cluster of fourteen smaller islands like Valiya Kadamakudy, Murikkal, Palyam thuruth, Pizhala, Cheriya kadamakudy, Pulikkapuram, Moolambilly, Puthussery, Chariyam thuruth, Chennur, Kothad, Korambadam, Kandanad and Karikkad thuruthu
Through this blog, I want to share with you at least a fraction of the beauty and splendor I am experiencing at Kadamakudy, which is on the suburbs of Kochi city of Kerala state of India. I cycle through Kadamakudy almost every day, and enjoy the natural beauty of the place. The road cutting through the Kadamakudy islands is ideal for cycling. Kadamakudy is known for it’s prawn farms (Chemmeen kettu) and the paddy cultivation. Six months of the year the fields are used for prawn farming, and for the remaining six months it is used for paddy cultivation. The months of March, April and May are ideal time for bird watching. Around 75 species of birds are spotted here. Any time of the year is good for photography, especially during the golden hours. The peak monsoon rains starts from June and continues till August.
Kadamakkudy islands had a population of 15,823. Males constitute 49% of the population and females 51%. Kadamakkudy has an average literacy rate of 84%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 86%, and female literacy is 82%. In Kadamakkudy islands, 11% of the population is under 6 years of age.
Valiya Kadamakudy is the main island of Kadamakudy islands.
