VELLAYANI LAKE AND PUNCHAKKARI FIELDS
Vellayani lake and punchakkari fields are only few kms away from my home.I took some photos of these places during one my causal visits through this place ,in my two wheeler, fortunately for me i was carrying my camera with me which i forget to take back from my vechile.These two places have so much ecological importance now a days as one is the largest fresh water lake in Trivandrum district which provides drinking water for a larger area of trivandrum city, while the other one is famous for its variety of migratory birds from all over the Globe. It is around 9 km away from Trivandrum the Central Bus Station at Thampanoor.A road passes through this lake; a bund has been constructed for this purpose. This lake attracts a lot of tourists.There is a boat race in the lake during Onam which attracts a huge crowd. Country boat service is available from Kovalam beach to reach the lake.
