The Snake Boat Race on the backwaters

God’s own country – Kerala celebrates a very colourful spectacle called the Snake boat race every year in August. This unique boat race held on the backwaters of Alleppy (Alappuzha ) is conducted to coincide with Onam – harvest festival and thus the ideal time to visit this area. Teams of 100 rowers compete with their wooden Snake Boats or “Chundanvallams” and is a great spectacle. Being monsoon time the country side is lush green and very invigorating.
