“Picture speaks more than words”
Isn’t it true?
If you read my previous blog, I went for trekking experience to Kumara Parvatha, the second highest peak in Coorg district, Karnataka, India. It was a strenuous trek that covered around 28 kms in 2 days including medium to difficult terrain. I am happy that I could complete it successfully. YAY! I will share my first-time trekking experience and some tips for novice like me, in my next blog.

Apart from adrenalin rush and the feeling of accomplishing something that comes with conquering rough terrain, adverse climate and reaching the top, there is something else which is really impressive about the mountains. And that’s the lush green surroundings and tranquility.
Being a part of Western Ghats, the World UNESCO Heritage site, Kumara Parvatha trek is home to rich biodiversity. Specially, the first 7 kms of the trek takes you through dense tropical rain forest and observing the variety of flora in this area is literally feast to the eyes. Since we trekked during monsoon, we could observe all the more diverse forms of life.
And to do justice to a place which is heaven for a large variety of flaura and fauna, what best can be then a photo walk through the diversity which we could see and capture in this trail.
Although I wish we had some more leisure time to observe details and capture all those wonderful jewels of the forest, especially colorful mushrooms, But Here is a quick photo walk through some of the nature’s wonderful creation.
Let’s first cover the Magical landscape, which is divided into wet dense forest and beautiful mountains covered with grasses
And the variety of plants and flowers
You thought forest was all about greens and browns! Think again!
Since it rained, the real treasure sprouted from the ground, colorful mushrooms. Most of them are unique and brightly colored, something I had never seen before.
And we could capture few creatures also.
Of course, the leeches. They were present all around
Spotted Beetles too
To conclude, western ghats encompasses a great treasure of diverse life forms and is a heaven if you love nature and enjoy exploring this amazing world!
Like it! Save it for later !
