A village that lives with snakes

2 mins. read
We’re taking you on a journey to the unique village of Shetphal in Maharashtra, India, where the residents live in harmony with snakes. We’re used to seeing people live with cats and dogs, or even more peculiar pets like parrots and turtles. But have you ever heard of anyone living with snakes? In the village of Shetphal, the residents have a unique and fascinating relationship with the reptiles.
Fun Fact: The residents of Shetphal hold the belief that they can interact with snakes by dancing or playing music, and this is how they keep the snakes in check and prevent them from entering human settlements. The village is home to a snake charmer who dances and plays music for the snakes, and it’s said that the snakes are not afraid of humans and vice versa. This unusual culture of coexistence between humans and snakes has led to some conflicts, but the residents don't seem to mind as long as they feel protected from the snakes' attacks.
Fun Fact: The cobras have been residing in the village since its inception, and the humans have only been there for a short while.
If you're adventurous and daring, we suggest visiting the village of Shetphal to experience this unique and fascinating relationship between humans and snakes. It’s a culture unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and it’s sure to leave you in awe.
