Chinese Fishing Nets, Kerala

Chinese Fishing Nets, Kerala

These giant cantilevered Chinese fishing nets that are set on the northeastern shore of Fort Kochi are the unofficial emblems of the backwaters of Kerala, with half a dozen of them believed to be the most photographed in this part of India. 

As history shows, these spiderlike contraptions are a legacy of traders from the court of Kublai Khan in 1400 AD, which required multiple people to operate during high tides. While modern methods of fishing have made these labor-intensive nets less and less profitable, they are still supplying fresh seafood that you will see on display for sale in Kochi these days. Aside from Kochi, you will also find them and other smaller fishing nets dotted around Lake Vembanad.

Now, if you are visiting Kochi in the beautiful state of Kerala, you should not miss seeing these giant fishing nets and how they are operated by the local fishermen in the area. As they form the primary fishing accessory in the community, the water that they cover will make it a pleasant and bewitching scene to tourists, especially during sunset. A holiday here would not be complete without experiencing this must-visit. Book a Kerala tour package with us here at La Vacanza Travel for a more memorable trip to this place.
