A great view of the nature with the coconut trees around the water can be seen from the duct as if we were in the air. You can walk over the duct and feel the thrill of being floating in the air. Steps are available on both sides so that you can climb and reach it from either side.Pineapple is very cheap here and tender coconuts are also available for drinking.Better go either early in the morning or evening so that you can enjoy fully and take some photos of you also including the nature.
Good place to see, One of the tallest bridge of asia, kudos to the former chief minister of TN for his vision and commitment. Scenic, semi clean, best time to visit 6 am to 8 am. If interested, can have bath in the stream flowing below the bridge. You will get fruits cultivated locally like pineapple, banana, Jack fruit etc.
