Pichavaram Mangrove Forest

Pichavaram is located in Killai in Chidambaram, which is 70 KM from KK Residency.
This place is not in Pondy but a near by location.
I would say its 1h30minutes drive at the max.
This place is an absolute beauty with superb mangrove trees along the river.
There are boats that take you into in the river alongside the trees and its just stunning.
This is also a most underrated/unknown spot not very far from Pondy.
