Witness The Practicing Session of Snake Boat Race

Backwaters host many snake boat races which are held in connection with Onam, the harvest festival between August and September. The races are preceded by colorful water parades and the atmosphere at the time is nothing short of electrifying! A single snake boat is manned by over a hundred oarsmen who row at an extremely fast pace in unison. You need to check the time when these particular races are held and if you are not visiting during these two months, you could consider witnessing a practice session which is also an absolute visual treat for tourists.
