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.

I feel that the grass color is over saturated, if you reduce it, I think it will be good.

Very nice scenery but I think you pushed a bit too much the brightness/contrast on PS. To get that level of green, the water became over-exposed and lost detail. My opinion, any way.

I like the composition, with the river in the diagonal!
The scenery is nicely framed, and the sky tells about rainy season...
Have a nice wekend, my friend!

nice composition and well captures shot. the water looks beautiful. i feel that the saturation of colours(greenery) is too high and it should be lowered to give a natural look.

O cenário é de grande paz, Pramod.
A água correndo por estas pedras, o verde forte da grama e a casinha branca ao fundo ativam nossa memória, quem já não passou por um lugar assim, que lembra a tranquilidade dste lugar!

The colors are too dark for my likings.The scenery looks very charming and attractive.The river flowing has added a silver line to this beauty.Everything is well seen and executed here except for the too saturated colors.
