Location: Baralikadu, Coimbatore Dist. Tamil Nadu, India.

Notes: Now is not the right time to visit this place. It was terribly hot, even though the assembly point was much cooler thanks to the trees. Water was less because of lack of regular monsoon.

      Since it is raining frequently in Coimbatore now, it would be a good time to visit, if you dont mind the bad roads

          It was around 45 min drive from Gandhipuram to this place. Due to the various constructions now, it might be a little longer than that.

              It’s been a long time since I visited the place. Am not sure of the monsoon and its effects now.

    Fine, enjoyable and peaceful photos. My favorites are Boating in Baralikadu (the leaves floating in the water conjure the imagination) Assembly Point for Boating (th twine hanging from trees is different to me. The Indian People Boating (look like they get along so well). Do all Indian people get along so well?

      Especially for letting me know your favorites.
      Yeah we do enjoy our boating because we have very less places near my place for it. So we make sure to enjoy it as much as we can ,together.

      I haven’t heard of any restrictions on the group. We were 6 people with 3 kids. We were allowed on the boating ride with 2 coracles with 3 adults each.
