Default Evergreen forests

Nelliyampathy is 75 kms from Palakkad. (Added by Moderator No publicity is allowed on TE, link deleted) is blessed with a rich population of elephants, Bison and Hill Squirrels. This high range hamlet is charming with its thick evergreen forests, tea and orange plantations.

Just 75 kms drive from Palakkad, the Nelliyampathy hills comprise a chain of ridges cut off from one another by valley of dense evergreen forests, tea and orange plantations. Seetha kund and kesavanpara are interesting spots in Nelliyampathy.

Default Landscape photography

I have always been crazy about forests, woods and it was nice to read all the information. I think similar forests are also available in Northern region (Uttaranchal) with beautiful lakes. one such place in Mukhteshwar which was established long back by britishers. It was developed for carrying out research on microbioloy. A beautiful place with the rocks enriched with mica which makes them glitter.

The himalayan range is visible from this place and it is enreiched with dordar and pine forests.

worth a visit and a delight for photographers interested in nature and landscape photography.
