Photographer's Note

The winding road from Denkanikotta to Anchetty in Tamil Nadu.
Anchetty is a sleepy hamlet nestled in the valley of Krishnagiri hills of Tamilnadu.
All around are undulating hills, forests and green fields. This is essentially an elephant terrain but other fauna like leopards & wild boars are also common. To get there one has to drive westwards from Hosur to Denkanahalli. (Bangalore to Hosur 40 Km) From there it's a meandering drive to Anchetty. Hognekal Falls is just 40 Km from the town and the road traverses through dense forests, hair pin bends and steep gradients. We opted for the less traveled Kanakapura road from Anchetty since we were short of time, moreover, it was a stretch I wanted to cover for a long time.The scenery is breathtaking and the roads are pretty decent. Between lush hills are valleys with farms growing a variety of veggies. This stretch is best covered during monsoons so you can take full advantage of the greenery... and the cloudy skies gives you a cool driving experience.
