Featured in this video is the boat race involving the Churulan Vallams. It is a kind of local boat in Kerala with rounded prows. The race is the annual Nehru Trophy boat race held on the Punnamada backwater in Alappuzha, Kerala. The Nehru Trophy boat race is one of the most popular boat races in Kerala.
The major attraction of the regatta is the pageantry of Chundan Vallams (Snake Boats). It is quite awesome to see these 100 feet long boats slicing through the water. The race in the category of Churulan Vallams is another attraction during the Nehru Trophy boat race.
