Photographer's Note

Coorg, a beautiful hill station in Karnataka, south India. Misty mountains. Myriad streams and waterfalls. Thick tropical forests. Miles of spice, paddy and coffee plantations. An abundance of rare flora and fauna. And a wonderfully-hospitable people with a mysterious past. A very few places will be blessed with such natural beauty and fetrility.

This old well covered in moss was in a place called Kutta, in South Coorg (Kodagu). The constant drizzles and moisture in the atmosphere makes most of the places in this area like this.

More Info:
Kutta is strategically located. 10 kms north is the Nagarhole National park, and about 8 kms south is the Wyanad wildlife sanctuary.
Irpu falls is 8 kms away, and is inside the Bhrahmagiri wild life sanctuary. The falls is about 58 feet high, the river is called Lakshman Thirtha. Lakshman thirtha flows and joins Cauvery in Mysore.
