Nilgiri Thars at Eravikulam National Park

Eravikulam National Park boasts of the being the only place one could see large concentration of Nilgiri Thar. This national park situated in the Kanan Devan Hill of Idukki Districts.

Good thing about this park is a limited no. of vechiles are allowed into the park, thereby causing less interference. The long wait for tickets enabled me to shoot this colourful waste bin.

The Mini bus take the visitor deep into the park,lined up with some exquisite mist laden gardens


Spotting the Thar is not a problem with so many in abundance. They are quite friendly and do not mind crossing the human path. 

The male is called a saddleback, I know not which is this one

And This one-serenely watching the onlookers

Idduki High ranges

Idduki nestled in the high ranges of Western ghats is truly God's Own - with the beautiful Munnar tea gardens and the wonderful Thekkadi. But if one is not a tourist, we get to see the beautiful interiors-how common people live in bliss, high up in mountains, where its a challenge to provide electricity and communication facility. Well lucky enough to be in such locations on job.

The tea-garden workers dry their clothes in this vast expanse of land

High up in the mountains, people live in such huts, surrounded by peaks on all sides
