Re-living...lanka

It's not far. It's just 6-8 hours from Hyderabad, depends on the speed of your vehicle though. Perurulanka is a remote place in the village of Amalapuram, Andhra pradesh. Surrounded by small islands, this place is much better than the crowded Kerala Backwaters(Personal opinion). 2 days are more than enough to cover this place and if you are in search for peace, better go few in number. We spent close to 6-7 hours on the island, cooking, hunting (sticks and wood for shelter) and ofcourse clicking the entire space. Wanted to stay back for the night, but couldnt do that for other reasons.

A decent break after a tedious week. Moreover, the mode of transport is the row boat. 45 minutes in water takes you very close to the nature. You will find no one nearby as the only way to reach the island is through boat and this is not a tourist place. So, don't be surprised if you don't find any locals or don't panic if your boat sinks after leaving you on the island. Get your stuf…
