Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Cuddalore District / Chidambaram / Pichavaram Mangrove Forest
Traverse some of the 400 waterways in search of spectacular wildlife at Pichavaram Mangrove Forest, considered one of the best examples of its kind in the world. Between September and April, a diverse range of resident and migratory birds inhabit the forest, including snipes, spoonbills, and egrets, with November to January being the busiest months. Take an hour-long boat tour through the water-rooted trees, where a guide will provide ample information regarding the natural world around you. Consider choosing a rowboat as your mode so as not to scare away your quarry, and travel with plenty of water to stay hydrated. Put Pichavaram Mangrove Forest on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Chidambaram itinerary planner.
