Western ghats are the row of mountains at the southwest of India. Its south end separates the states Kerala and Tmail Nadu. This south portion is almost continuous and have thick green beautiful forest.
The very famous Ootty, Kodiakanal, Thekkadi, Silent Valley, Parambikulam national park, Munnar, Chinnar, Kuttalam, Thirunelli, Valpara etc etc all are in these range.
There are only a few notches through which the roads connecting two southmost states. Palghat pass is the widest one and NH47 and railway goes through this. Almost all the other ways are through thicky hill forest and tourists can fulfill their minds with great pleasure. I like very much the travel through this mountaineous roads.
One beautiful and amazing route is `Chalakkudi' - `Pollachi'. Chalakkudi is in Kerala and Pollachi in Tamil Nadu. You can see big group of wild elephants while passing through here. The famous `Athirappalli' waterfall, `Vazhachal', Sholayar dam, Malakkappara Tea estates, Valpara, Aliyar Dam etc are sonses of this path.
A few weeks ago I had a travel through this road and I camped at `Valpara' for a day. I consider the Valpara as Munnar of TamilNadu. I know that Valpara is as beatiful as Munnar of Kerala. But the tourists are not coming much because of the lack of exposure and inconvenience in transportation.

Another nice composition of this wonderful place. I like the composition with the dark silluette of these beautiful trees against the bright cloudy sky. It reminds me of the chinese paitings.

Hello Pramod !
Wonderful capture of the forest. I think the clouds help a lot to create the mystery atmosphere.
Also thanks for the interesting note. I travel once a year to Chennai and will see if this is not too far....

This is an excellent and dramatic shot! I love the silhoetted trees against the suspenseful sky. Would any of these trees be Neem trees?
The green groundcover is also beautiful. Well done!

Splendid composition (the siluettes of the trees looks very nice) and also wonderful sky. The colours are good and the photo is very attractive.
