Kumbla Estuary & Mangrove Forest

Kumbla with its inherent charisma allures visitors at first sight

Often spelt as Kumble or Kumbala, the town is located at the mouth of a lagoon created by the Shriya River forming the estuary. The gorgeous mangroves flourishing in the rich estuary attract numerous migrant birds including Openbill storks, seagulls, black/brown-headed gulls, lesser-crested terns, and Eurasian curlews. 

A boat rides through the backwaters and a peaceful stroll around the shore can be enjoyed if you are an explorer and relish mellow village life at its best. The mangrove forests are a major attraction with their rich biodiversity. Wild animals are not found here, making it safe for travellers. Situated 10 km north of Kasaragod, the estuary is a hub of activity for the local fishermen too. 

With the Kumbla Fort, Kumbla Temple, Kumbla Beach and many other attractions nearby, the Kumbla estuary and mangrove forest is a favourite picnic destination. This gorgeous haven welcomes you with the Openbill storks, flaunting their favourite haunts in the mangroves to you!
