pichavaram mangrove backwaters

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by writeandshare on February 11, 2002

Take a bus ride of about fifteen kilometres through breathtakingly green paddy fields and observe village life centred around a canal that runs along the bus route.

Arriving in Pichavaram about forty minutes later, the backwaters of the Bay of Bengal and a mangrove forest welcomes you. Rent a boat and a guide (you could get lost in that forest) and in about one hour you will reach the Bay of Bengal.

Returning have a drink at the TTDC bar and then if you wish to spend the night, stay at their guest house with the shimmering waters reflecting a tropical moon.
