The Gingee Fort is impossible to miss during a trip in Pondichery. Situated about 65 km from Pondy, on the road to Thiruvannamalai, this fort of 9th century, was built by the Chola Dynasty. Walls compound surround three fortified rocks, the most majestuous is the Raj Giri by which it is common to start, it is around 300m. It has also the benefit to have some shade places, really useful to have a break. The other fort, the Krishna Giri is thinner but the rise is precipitous as it is a loooong stair without shadow. The third one is like inexistant, besides nobody visit it. If you want to have a day outsides doing a nice walk, we advise you to go there early in the morning, with good shoes and hats to climb on the two hills which get to the forts. The price ticket to enter is 5 rs for Indian people and 100 rs for foreigners and it contains the visit of the two forts.       Book Now

This beach is a twenty minutes drive to the north of the town. Fishing boats are parked on the shore and one can see kids do summersaults off the deck. A lot of the beach is covered with creepers and the green helps cool the place. Surfing is very popular here as the waves are bigger than the adjoining Auro Beach. For the very same reason, it is best to stick to the shore line when swimming on this stretch of sand. A surf school and cafe and even a weekend flea bazaar will entertain you when visiting. Carry towels, change of clothes, some water and snacks if you want to stay a while. The beach gets pretty crowded so do keep an eye out for your belongings. Timings Beach closes at 6:30pm.      Book Now
