The boating in the Pichavaram backwaters was really excellent. What impressed us very much was the clean area and the entire route remained immaculately clean. One should never forget to have a boat ride while you are in Chidambaram

Excellent. Row and motor boats are available on rent. A must visit place. The mangrove forests are dense and have cave like structures where the boats can go inside. The mangrove leads to beach.

Boating in the back water arranged by the Tamilnadu tourism development corporation. Row Boat and motor boat available for 1,2 and 4 hour journey. The back water journey is very safe.
