Nehru Trophy Snake Boat Race

Nehru Trophy Snake Boat Race in Alleppey

When August comes, the placid water of the Punnamada Lake becomes a track on fire. Yes it is the time of the prestigious Nehru Trophy Boat Race, where the silence of the lake is sliced by the slashing oars of the pacing boats. Held on the second Saturday of August every year, it is the most popular of all boat races in the world.

People from near and far swarm the banks of Punnamada Lake to enjoy this annual water regatta. Apart from the races of chundan valloms (snake boats) and of smaller country crafts, the event has in store many fascinating moments like the ceremonial water processions, spectacular floats and decorated boats.
