Coracles on Kaveri river
"Indian coracles are commonly found on the rivers Kaveri and Tungabhadra in Southern India.[1] Coracles are primitive, light, bowl-shaped boats with a frame of woven grasses, reeds, or saplings covered with hides.[2] Indian coracles are considered to have been in existence since prehistoric times,[2] and are a major tourist attraction at the Hogenakkal falls on the Kaveri river.[3] Although these boats were originally designed for general transport, they have recently been used mostly for giving tourists rides."(wikipedia)
