Train Travel from Kannur to Kanhangad in North Kerala

Train travel in India takes you almost everywhere. It is safe to assume that you can travel between any two Indian cities or major towns by train.

I travelled between Kannur and Kanhangad in March this year. It is a relatively short trip of  66 km and takes 1 h 3 min.  The beautiful landscape is dominated by tidal creeks and waterways. The mangroves are home to a wide variety of fish, birds and animals. I have selected below 11 pictures that reflect the diversity and beauty on the scenic route.
