Pathiranamal Island

The little island of Pathiramanal on the Backwaters is beautifully named; Pathiranamal meaning "sands of night". The island is a favourite haunt of hundreds of rare migratory birds from different parts of the area. The green island thus forms an ideal place for a break in the journey while on a backwater cruise.

Snake boat races

The boats of Kerala are known after their shapes, sizes or purposes. The Chundaanvallam or snake boat takes its name from its stern, which represents the raised hood of a snake, as also from its serpentine length. They have a length of about 60-65 meters and can carry between 100-110 people. Snake boats are the traditional battle vessels of Kerala.
