Tranquil Periyar

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Hema Narayanan

Periyar lake in Thekkady is known for its mystic appeal. Numerous leafless trees and randomly shaped putrefied trunks rising out of the subtly greenish-blue water as if they were sea horses. What makes it more fascinating are also the presence of the National sanctuary around it and the magical weather. Periyar is a calm and serene - poetic in its appearance. The boat ride lets one experience its spell - that of being picturesque and eerie all at once!

Location: Periyar lake, Thekkady, Kerala, India
