Traditional Bamboo Raft - Kuruwadweep

Traditional way of crossing the river.

Tourists returning from the Kuruvadweep Island. Dweep in Sanskrit means island. Kuruva island is around 1000 acre evergreen forest. You need to cross the river Kabani to enter into the forest. Seen in the picture are tourists returning from the island on traditional raft made of bamboo. They have placed some ropes to help raftman to guide the raft. Watching the raftmen (people in the dark green dress) rowing the raft is a fun in itself.

Place: Kuruva Island, Wayanad, Kerala, India
