Lovely pictures @Krish  How have you managed to get a boat at this place so early during the day and how much did he charge?

Thank you @sagar.

 

 I spoke with the boat operator when he was enjoying the sunrise.

 

Actually the boating should start at around 10.00AM, but we somehow managed to start a bit early. He also gave us ticket for the ride which is 650 rupees for two, charged by PTDC.  Explored Yanam well but could not go deep as its a sudden plan. Yanam has really a very good potential to expand. But I think its better left untouched preserving its natural beauty. There are many unexplored places, small and beautiful islands, thick mangoves around the place. Will explore all those and write a detailed trip report soon.

True, Koringa mangrove forest is one such place and I have explored the old Koringa village during my recent visit after ~3 kms from Yanam. It has a beautiful old bridge across the back waters which has access to only 2 wheelers (very narrow).

I have enjoyed the sunset from the same. Check out the link below for the pictures.

      Trip Report
       
       
      Yanam, the place that I first visited in 2013, when I was 17. And this time again I wanted to visit the place only to know it better and love it more...
       
      Started early in the morning at 5:10 and reached the area in 1hr. 
       
      The only thing I thought I could do in the place is to take the initial sunrise photo touching the waters. That's a beautiful sight and I never missed that. But surprisingly this time I got more than what I expected. I got to know about the area more and explore the area and the backwaters. This time, unfortunately, I could take my favourite shot, the sun touching the waters because of clouds. But got a chance to explore the area a bit. 
       
      It was 7:00 AM, the sun just started rising pushing the clouds aside. And there I saw a person in a white shirt and white pant, assumed him to be a local and approached him to inquire more about the place. To my surprise, he turned out to be the government boat operator. Upon asking him, he arranged a boat ride into the waters and at 7:15 I was on the boat moving gently on the backwaters. 
       
      The boat driver Ramakrishna, is a very nice guy. I finished taking photos and started talking with him. he spoke many things, from the political situation in Puducherry and Andhra Pradesh, their lives, the local MLA and not to forget, the insider information about the place.  Yanam, a very beautiful place, mostly unexplored and left undeveloped. "Yanam chala manchi ooru Saru, Kani Chala mandi teliyaka raru. Tourists perigite maku income perugutundi" said the boat driver. 
      Yanam indeed is a really beautiful place, there are many places to explore from Yanam. 
       
      The first one, 
       
      Bhairavapalem Mangrove Forests (Where we can find many rare migratory birds. It takes 2 hours to come and 2 hours stay on this island. Total of 6 hours. Price for 10 is 6000 INR) Koringa Mangrove Forests And many small unexplored islands (We can find many migratory birds)  
      I think the area should be developed, but that development shouldn't destroy the natural beauty and serenity of the place. The local activities early in the morning, sunrise, birds chirping and the fishing activities are really beautiful and the development should not destroy these...
       
      Part 2 coming soon... I'll be writing about the places that in have visited in part 2.  
       
      Places to stay:
      The Regency Hotel (best for families as per trip advisor) Sarva Inn Puducherry Government Guest House   
      Few Pictures

      Hi All,

      This is my first travel story in India-Drive.
      I have been working in Bangalore from the past few years.
      Recently, I moved back to Hyderabad.
      My last drive is from Hyderabad to Himalayas with India-Drive team.
      It is my best and longest I have ever done in my Duster.
       
      Surylanka drive


      I have been to Suryalanka around 10 times, frankly speaking, I lost the count!
      Last month me and my friend decided to go on a quick weekend getaway.
      Plan is to start on Saturday morning and come back by Sunday evening. 
       
      We all know that Suryalanka is overcrowded during weekends. 
      So we constructed a strategy to beat the crowd. 
       
      Route taken
      Hyderabad --> Vijaywada --> Suryalanka
      We took this route since we had accommodation(friend's place) at Vijayawada.

      Best route from Hyderabad to Suryalanka
      Hyderabad --> Nalgonda --> Miryalaguda --> Narasaraopet --> Suryalanka
      I would suggest people to visit Chirala beach along with Suryalanka, we missed out due to time constraint. 

      We started on Saturday around 11AM.
      We took the famous the Hyderabad-Vijayawada section.
      This is one of the best section after Hyderabad-Bangalore.(my personal favorite)

      Maintained steady 110km/hr in my trusted Duster.
      We reached Suryapet by 2PM and stopped over for lunch at Hotel 7.
      Hotel 7 is one of the best in terms of Infrastructure/Food/Quality/Maintenance.
       
      Suryapet to Vijayawada took us around 2 hours +.
      Crossing Vijayawada is always pain. Multiple diversions and no proper signs leads to confusion.
      One of our friend stays in Vijayawada outskirts, we reached his place by 5PM.
      Decided to call the day off.
