From the boatride, one can enjoy these watery trees at close with the boatman acting as your guide. He will reel out stories, escapades, cinema shootings and also amazingly some of the botanical names of the birds, flora and fauna. If you are lucky, you may see some water snakes or fox cubs. November to February is the best time, where one can spot migratory birds in morning and evening. Some of the mangroves are dense and and you have to bend, crawl to get around those overhanging trees.Totally you take them as a unique experience where you would have discovered yet another nature’s dimension.
