Today we witnessed pondicherry differently, with no sea or sand though sun was defnitely there. We traveled a long way till Chidamvaram to witness the second largest mangrove forest in India, Pichavaram mangrove forest. The meandering rides through the creeks was an enthralling experience. The green water, the breathing roots, the vegetation, the migratory birds all added to the mystic beauty of the mangrove forest. A must visit destination while vacationing in pondy.
