An exciting event that takes place in Kerala is known as the Snake Boat Race. It is so called because the prows of the boats are shaped like raised hoods of snakes. Known as Chundan Vallom, the boats are highly maneuverable. Each boat, 6 metres long, can carry a hundred oarsmen. They ply with speed and grace to the accompaniment of music from drums and cymbals.
