(Note from old posts...)
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.

It is a very nice vertical compo. The colours are excellent and the green in the foreground is beautiful I also like the misty look of the background. Well done.

I had seen your earlier posts from this not so famous but absolutely breathtaking place and had promised myself someday I would visit it. It is indeed beautiful. The misty atmosphere, the cascading waterfalls is all so eye catching but ist the green tea gardends which makes this so fresh.

Wonderful colours and a special atmosphere is captured!
I like the misty feeling of these landscapes, and the contrasty tree trunks create a fine feeling of depth...
The waterfall is a natural eye-catcher, well done!
