about pichavaram

Located at 57 km from Pondicherry, Pichavaram is home to the second largest mangrove in the world. It is possibly the closest to an Amazonian experience you can get in India. Not only can you indulge in backwater cruises out here, but also get to see the rare sight of mangrove forests permanently rooted in a few feet of water.

For bird lovers and naturalists, this place is a must visit; not only will you come across rare species of fauna and fishes, but also rare species of local and migrant birds like herons, spoonbills, pelicans, water snips and many more. For bird sighting best time to visit is from September to April. Located between two significant estuaries, the backwaters make for thrilling water cruises and you can indulge in kayaking, canoeing and rowing.
