Photographer's Note

The Ametikallu Peak of the Charmadi Range in the Western-Ghats, is one of the toughest and steepest hike of Karnataka. The picture here gives a glimpse of the angle of steepness near its summit. Also, Ametikallu Peak is the highest mountain in the Charmadi Range. Its surroundings comprise of other peaks - Yethina Bhuja, Shingani Gudda, Ombathu Gudda(The Nine Hills), Jenukallu, Balekallu and Minchukallu. Ametikallu (locally Amedikkel) is a rocky mountain that takes the shape of the back of a Tortoise, with a huge stone-stove in front ('Ame' - Tortoise, 'Dikkel' - Stove)

My cousins and I pose from a risky position on the mountain.
