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
