Drifting Along

Drift along in a boat along the backwaters, sit back and marvel at the beautiful mangroves of Pichavaram. The tranquil location is a haven for birds. It was our first glimpse of this amazing ecosystem, and we were thrilled! India has the distinction of being home to the world’s largest (Sunderbans) and second largest (Pichavaram) mangrove forests.
