Pichavaram Mangrove Forest Reviews & Ratings
Superb place, nice and fresh air. Boating experience was good when the person who was on the boat with the paddle explained to us about the place. He stopped near various spots to take photos and allowed us to get down the boat near shallow area. Need to take the motorboat ride next time.
The boat ride is a wonderful experience. Boatmen ask for extra money to take you into interesting areas, which you obviously agree to because you don't want to miss out on that having come all the way to the place. So try to negotiate on the amount they demand.
Nice & thrilling if you go with loved ones alone.... If you ready to pay more for the riders they get you to the long areas.. Which looking very good... Don't worry it is well safety for children's & ladies.. you Must visit here once in your lifetime...
Beautiful place to go.. the vegetation is not something u could see easily elsewhere.. highly recommend this natural beauty. We took a motor boat (shades on top available to avoid the sun) during the month of March - so no queue.
Wow place. Fresh air and a different experience. Boat rides are reasonable and boat riders take us inside at extra cost. Water is so muddy but mongrove first is a next level. Tamil Nadu tourism should improve rest room, proper water jacket and hotel up there. Motor boat is worth taking... Rowing boat is not that much good. Best time to visit after June since May is very hot up there.
