About Backwaters – Allepey

Located on the other side of the Vembanad lake, lies this beautiful town otherwise called as the Venice of The East.  Coir making is a major cottage industry in the region.  The fibrous husk from the coconut is submerged in water for a period of almost 9 months. The husk rots and the fibers open up. Then it is pounded and combed and sun-dried after the pith is removed.  The sun-dried fibres are then bundled into bales and later machine twisted to make ropes. Various other products like coir mattress, coir curtains, coir doormats, etc..

Snake Boat Races are a part of this district that enables the oarsman to show their power and strength.  The Nehru Annual Boat Race begins during the festival of Onam.
