Thank you for stopping by,

please enjoy the images and

the story we saw at Pichavaram Mangrove Forest.


We decided to venture 5 hours south of Chennai leaving at 10:00pm for a 5:35am beginning of sunrise at blue hour for one of the most scenic, peaceful visits locations within India, i.e. the Pichavaram Mangrove Forest.

First time to see a Mangrove where the Mangrove trees basically suck up the salt in sea water leave on the opposite fresh, dark water.

Inside where only hand-powered boats can go are 4000 wide to narrow canals to transverse.  With low tide coming in at times it was out of the boat to push. A two hour adventure.

Later we headed for the famous Thillai Nataraja Temple in Chidambaram.
