Boat Race in Tripura is one of the most fun-loving events celebrated in August at Melaghara or Gandhacherra. It is one of the famous festivals in Tripura that holds the attention of the people of Tripura and the rest of the world. It is a unique ceremony when the people with boats dive down the river, and a competition is held; prizes are given at the end of the Boat Race. Tripura is a land consisting of both the tribal and the non-tribal groups, and the Hindus form a majority of the population of Tripura. So, it is evident that the Fairs and Festivals of Tripura would involve the Hindus, and those festivals would have maximum participation from the Indus only.

But the best feature of this Boat Festival is that people, irrespective of caste, class, and creed, are equally allowed to participate in the event, making the carnival all the more appealing and impressive. Tripura is a land with a lush green landscape inundated with frequent gorges and rivers. But down these rivers, people let flow their boats and participate in the Boat Race amidst a cheering audience and heartfelt hope and aspiration. You can book your holiday during this festival time to witness the unique celebration in Tripura. However, this destination has many more things to offer for tourists that you can explore on your Tripura tour.
