We all headed to Vembanad Lake next day, which is longest lake in India. I couldn't believe from my own eye that i was looking at so huge lake that we could feel as if we are in a sea. I couldn’t stop taking lot of pictures at the spot, I guess Photography and nature lovers all find this place fascinating and interesting. This is right place to capture nice clicks of the lush green lagoons surrounded by fields, lot of coconut trees.There are some islands in the lake that can only be reached by boat.
