Due to several environmental reasons, I had to return to India for my studies. During one of the holidays, I decided to visit Munnar and the hills of Idukki once again. As usual, a number of beautiful landscapes appeared before me, but no interesting animals. Here's a waterfall. You have seen a B&W photograph of the same waterfall in the previous post.
A shot I took of the tea plantations while in the moving van.
A lovely fern...
And then a type of 'park' where you have many tiny shops selling various forest products. I just focused on getting those landscape shots.
The water here is still as there is a big dam just beside it, and hence you could go boating in the water.
The only animals I managed to spot and photograph were these tiny birds fluttering around and resting on the unattended boats by the banks.
It was an unsatisfactory trip for me. There are (or used to be) many wild animals like elephants and deer in these forests, but now they and many other wildlife are hardly spotted, probably due to the large number of visitors.
