Photographer's Note

Morning was little showering at Valpara. I caught an `Auto Rikshaw' to go some interior of Valpara. I could see Very beautiful nature of Valpara... full of greenery... every hills put on smooth trasparent bra with fog and green skirts... every valleys are filled with dreams...

Meanwhile the driver took a short break...
i was too enthusiast and energetic by seeing the surrounding nature...
I was loosing my patience and i took my camera...
Shot the road in front, what i could do while sitting in the vehicle...
I saw a coming bus and some people, all are in showering...

(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.)
