A unique sporting spectacle in the city of Kerala, the world-famous snake boat race is a one-of-a-kind event that occurs every year. The 100-120 ft snake boat is considered to be the traditional war boat of Kerala and can hold about 100 rowers at a time. This 400-year old tradition is a very different sight and has been nurtured in the coastal state with pomp and celebration. To keep the zeal and motivation high, boatmen sing local songs with traditional percussion instruments. Program highlights include:

  • Visit the port town of Cochin
  • The serenity of the Kerala backwaters
  • Enchanting wild-life and beaches
  • The Nehru Trophy Boat Race
