Our Heavenly Tourism and Leisure Stays

Kerala, located on the south-western tip of India, enjoys unique geographical features that have made it one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Asia. Fondly referred to as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala was selected by the National Geographic Traveler as one of the 50 destinations of a lifetime and one of the thirteen paradises in the world. An equable climate, serene beaches, tranquil stretches of backwaters, lush hill stations and exotic wildlife are the major attractions of this land. Ecotourism is tourism which is conducted responsibly to conserve the environment and sustain the well-being of local people. Bell Farms have developed two locations for its eco tourism venture: Mundrothuruthu, Avittathur.


Bell Aqua Stay-Mundrothuruthu

Munroe Island is a hidden pearl in the backwaters which is composed of a cluster of 8 islands. Each of them is separated by small water channels and lakes. Munroe Island is located about 27 km from Kollam. The place is named in honour of Resident Colonel John Munroe, of the former princely state of Travancore. He is said to have integrated several backwater regions by digging canals. Some of this island’s main attractions are the narrow waterways, canal cruise and the famous Kallada Boat Race held here during the 10-day festival of Onam. It offers a unique and tranquil setting, far away from the constant chaos of modern life. Bell Aqua Stay is located at 8.987921044540869, 76.61103149512341 at the Monroe Island. Bell Aqua Stay has a native cottage which you can occupy during your stay in this relaxing haven. Staying in this native cottage would surely give you a wonderful and unique experience apart from the other best experiences that you can get from visiting this Aqua Farm and Hatchery. Bell Aqua Stay is also a perfect place where celebrations just like birthdays, anniversaries, and other events can be made even more special. It has a wide-open area where tables and chairs can be set up and it also has an outdoor hall.


Bell Farm Stay – Avittathur

Vellavali

Vellavali, is a method of fishing used to catch Karimeen (Pearl Spot) is common in Monroe. This method requires expertise in fishing and swimming. First, a piece of coir rope, about a km long, is shaped into an inverted U. Tender palm leaves are attached to the rope and then two fishermen tie the ends of the rope to their waists while standing in water in bright sunlight. The men then walk through shallow waters using poles. The palm leaves tied to their waists shine in the water. The light reflected from the leaves scares the Pearl Spot and they hide in the muddy areas. At this time, expert swimmers, who have been following the two men in country boats, dive into the muddy water and catch the prized fish with their bare hands.


Fishing With Bamboo Traps

Another common method of fishing in Monroe is bamboo trap fishing. This technique is good for small canals and paddy fields. A kind of basket made of bamboo is used for this type of fishing. The basket has one conical closed end and a wide opening at the other. This trap device is called koodu (cage) by the natives. The trap is placed in the narrowest area of running water. The part of the canal towards the back of the trap is blocked with twigs or mud. The fishes enter the trap through its wide mouth. They cannot escape as the other end is closed. The trap is then lifted from the waters for the catch. Sometimes, in paddy fields, the fishermen throw the fish food and when the fishes gather, they are caught by covering them with bamboo traps. The people around here are very passionate about the rich and exotic pearl spot/ karimeen.


Angling

The canals running across the village as well as the shallow waters of Lake Ashtamudi offer great opportunities for angling. With patience and a little bit of skill, you are sure to have a fairly good catch as well as a lot of fun taking part in a traditional village activity. The traditional angling gear consists of a simple fishing rod, a fishing line and a hook. The popular bait, earthworms, is found in abundance all around.
