About Nilgiris

Now coming to the bear mountain - the owner couple let me know that the mountain exactly opposite to the guesthouse is called the bear mountain. Quite literally, it has had and might still have bears residing on it. My cute binoculars did the rest ( curiously searching for one). To some luck, I did manage to spot a herd of bisons. I wonder why people don't carry binoculars (instead of or alongside a DSLR !) I could not see any bear on this visit but the stories that I got to know and the beauty of this place which I got to behold will remain etched in my mind for quite some time. The resort is pretty awesome, resides in the Nilgiris and bears the name - 42 Green Pastures!Till I get surprised again ! Cya
