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.

très belle photo ! D'abord le premier plan très coloré et avec une lumière excellente... puis les différents plans se succèdent en étant chacun un peu plus pâle que le précédent... C'est magnifique

another beautiful composition from Valparai... the winding road has come out much better in this one.. but I feel that colours are a bit oversaturated... its good that you have exposed this place to the outside world... otherwise it would have remained hidden forever for people like us... now Valparai is on my list of "must see places when I visit south", a la Munnar...
my two cents
I have posted to workshop... hope you like it...

Another excellent effort. This place reminds me of my trip to Sri Lanka, where the tea is grown. The landscape looks very similar. The lines in the terraces have come out wonderfully. Keep up the good work.

C'est une photo qui allie le graphisme des plantations aux couleurs très lumineuses. C'est du très beau travail.

Amazing capture here. i particularily like how you have managed to get 3 different tones to each of the 3 horizontal portions of the hills.I'm generally inclined to pale,dark picture to relate with calmness,serenity, seclusion and/or sadness but your tone of green which transcends brightness seems fresh and positive.I think you've indirectly given me an education :-)You have a gr8 camera eye.TFS.
