Ooty raises a cry that screams ‘wild child’, this breed is bound to wander through the wilderness and along with bellowing meadows of Pastor Valley, base for our trek to Mukurthi national park. The reserve is a splendid plethora of flora and fauna. Although, as much as we appreciated the beauty of it we were more excited to get a shot or two of the famous Nilgiri Tahr or any other endangered species. We navigated around intense wilderness of the forest to the vast stretches of the greenlands blended so perfectly with the groves of trees and sholas that nothing seemed more at rest enough to put me into trance. The tropical weather sure did give us a run for our jackets and a cup of tea.
