Hello everyone 🙂
Last year in July we had gone on a trip to Puducherry ( India ). There is a place called Pichavaram , approximately 60 km from Puducherry ,where the second largest mangrove forest in the world is situated . I would like to tell you guys that more than the beauty of puducherry itself , it was the mangroves that swept us off our feet !!! Though we weren’t supposed to be taking our motorbike outside the district ,we managed it , getting there would have been a problem otherwise . I guess the authorities weren’t that strict after all . So guys here is Pichavaram for you .
We were allotted a guide because there were chances one might get lost . For the ticket we bought at the counter he would only give us a superficial tour , so we paid him an extra 300 Indian rupees and he was ready to take us inside the mangroves , a whole 4 hr trip . And so our ride began 🙂
The entire stretch was calm and beautiful, we could also see locals fishing . The water wasn’t very deep and if at all a tsunami were to happen , we were safe 🙂 .
we began our journey into those small waterways inside , nature embraced us, in every way , we heard insects, birds and were even lucky enough to spot a really long snake feasting on a frog . It was like being swallowed by another world . Beautiful 🙂
it was creepy and narrow at some places and our echoes were talking to us !!! 😦
We saw flowers in trees, ripe fruits waiting to burst open and scatter seeds, seeds that were floating in the waters ready to plant themselves . Nature has a means for every living being that inhabits her , true to what she is called “mother nature” 🙂 i took home some fruits ,twigs,roots – souvenirs 🙂
This was our way back 🙂 , hope you guys enjoyed the virtual tour around the mangroves, Sunderbans would be even better !!! 🙂 Trust me friends its much more than these pics i have posted ,couldn’t do much justice i suppose . The feeling of being amidst nature ,no words can ever describe that 🙂
