The Nilgiris are a trekker's paradise. Landscaped by nature, the hills abound in trek for lovers of nature. There are treks and treks in whichever direction you turn and from whichever point you start. A trek can be full of thrill, excitement and adventure and a way of seeing and enjoying nature in all its beauty and splendour.
Mostly, we spend half of the day in hides for Bird photography and trek various mountains for any specific birds, before I start a day local food and coffee are always tempting, the atmosphere is always cool and unexpected rain makes feeling of joy in those mountains.
Nilgiris derives its charm from its natural setting. The steep hills and fantastically narrow valleys with numerous rivers and rivulets running in all directions with a few fine waterfalls here and there provide beautiful scenery. The temperate and most equable climate further heightens the attractiveness of the place. The major tea growing areas in the South are the Nilgiris and these tea gardens are beautiful to watch, Flowers and overall each and every flora and fauna is unique and surprising.
Its is Very much possible for those who want to enjoy the hidden beauties and wildlife of Tamil Nadu, one can hire any guide or local person, most important to see in that hill is the connection of people and wildlife sharing space together without any bad attitudes.
