Chundan Vallam

 Chundan Vallam

The snake boats [Chundan Vallam ] are about 100 feet long. The snake boats are so called because their curved stem resembles the hood of a snake and a tampering bow. During this occasion, all the boats are adorned with silk and golden glittery umbrellas and there is a crew of more than 100 men rowing the boat. Besides the speed, it is the graceful rhythmic movements of the boat and the oarsmen that look amazing.
