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.
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 publicity and inconvenience in transportation.

I like your composition very much.
I regret the contrast is a little low and the foreground a little dark.
I tried a Workshop, hope you'll like.

wow all photos of western ghats always bring such joy to me.. looking at this one, one loses sense of time.. soft hazy tones.. even the red flowers stand out yet dim away.. the green's soft and luminous.. and beyond the cloud forests.. thanks for the snap!

The green slopes in the mist are attractive for this shot. I think the trees are abit too dark. Anyway food perspective and composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Excellent shot of the valley covered with cloud.I have seen the wokshop of photo65net and it is very nice with less digital grains and more saturated colour.The fogy climate is adding drama to the shot.
