Jumbo meal! A wild elephant enjoying the food, oblivious of all the onlookers on the Munnar-Top Station road. Neelgiris are rich in wildlife with good number of wild elephants roaming in its forests.  #travel #travelphotography  #travelphotographer  #travelblog  #travelgram  #travelstories  #travelblogger  #photography  #photooftheday  #pictureoftheday  #picoftheday  #kerala #munnar #idukki #elephant #godsowncountry  #wildlife #wildlifephotography  #adventure #instapic  #topstation  #nilgiris

Life lessons! When the young one gets naughty and is not ready to listen to mother, mother has other ways to teach him!! Watching wild elephants on the go in Munnar region though not unusual, is a fascinating experience.  #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #travelstories #travelblog #travelblogger #photography #instapic  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureofday  #kerala #munnar #wildlife #elephant #wild #incredibleindia #mattupetty #godsowncountry  #parenting #wildlifephotography
Bereft of cloud and this look will be entirely different. A place good enough to give you many adventure goals, Top Station commands magnificent views of Kolukkumalai and Meesapulimala peaks as well. A visit or two are barely good to justify this place!  #travel #travelgram  #travelphotography  #travelstories  #travelblogger  #travelblog  #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #instapic  #incredibleindia #kerala #munnar #topstation  #godsowncountry  #keralatourism  #adventure #neelgiri #clouds  #neelakurinji
Corn republic! Sweet corns have quickly made into snacks habbits of Indians. A roadside snack shop at Top Station on Kerala-Tamil nadu border along the walking trail to view point. All healthy food on the platter though, mostly local fruits... you will love them! Top station is among the must see destinations for tourists going to Munnar in Kerala!  #travel #travelgram #travelphotography  #travelstories  #travelblogger #travelblog  #incredibleindia #kerala #photography #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #instapic #munnar #keralatourism  #tamilnadutourism  #topstation  #neelgiris #food #snacks #corn  #streetphotography
It can be quite surprising to find such a view down in south, thousands of kilometres away from the Himalayas. Top station is an amazing place. Clouds hovering below in the valley and Shola grasslands spread out... this place has lot, lot more to explore!  #travel #travelgram  #travelblogger  #travelblog  #travelphotography  #travelstories  #incredibleindia  #kerala #ktdc #keralatourism #munnar #topstation #neeelgiris #photography  #photoftheday  #picoftheday  #pictueoftheday  #instapic #clouds #valley #sholagrasslands
Well, in what we can call as रोशनदान फोटोग्राफी we see a copper gilded statue of Lord Buddha at Hemis monastery in Ladakh. This statue is of emance historic and religious importance. It is tough to get this shot though, as you are not allowed to take pictures inside this prayer hall. Besides this statue, this prayer hall houses various stupas that are said to be made of precious metals like gold and silver. Even if you are allowed, the small hall, limited space in the front and the huge statue doesn't gives you a angle wide enough to get the whole frame. Hence this particular image was taken from the window on the roof of that prayer hall.  #travel #travelgram  #travelphotography  #travelblogger  #travelblog  #travelstories  #incredibleindia #ladakh #hemis #monastery #buddha #buddhism #culture #religion #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday #himalayas #leh #statue #heritage
A Nilgir Tahr crossing a water stream over rocky plateau at Eravikulam National Park near Munnar in Kerala. Categorized as ‘endangered’ by the IUCN, Nilgiri Tahr is endemic to the hill ranges of the Western Ghats of Southern peninsular India. Those who have travelled frequently to Lahaul & Spiti can find the similarity to Himalayan Tahr. They are indeed closely related and so is the Arabian Tahr which is found in arid mountains of Sultanate of Oman.  #travel #travelgram  #travelblog  #travelblogger  #travelphotography  #travelstories  #india #kerala #munnar #idukki #eravikulamnationalpark  #nilgiritahr #arabiantahr #himalayantahr #nationalpark  #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #instapic  #wildlife #iucn #endangeredspecies
A red-whiskered or crested bulbul at Eravikulam National Park near Munnar in Kerala. Even when you are focussed on watching Neelakurinji flowers around, such distractions are always welcome.  #travel #travelgram  #travelphotography  #travelblogger  #travelblog  #travelstories  #tourism #incredibleindia #kerala #godsowncountry  #munnar #eravikulamnationalpark  #birds #birdphotography  #bulbul #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #instapic  #neelakurinji
This is indeed the one of the might iconic sights of ladakh- the Thiksey monastery. It is imposing- standing on a hill top with complete hillock dedicated to monastery campus. One just can’t miss this place as it is right adjacent to the road to Leh while coming from the Manali side. Its also very close to Leh, just 19 kms before it.  It is also one of the biggest monasteries in Ladakh. It is also said to resemble Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. At the altitude of 3,600 metres this monastery overlooks the Indus Valley with full view of the magnificent Stok range. This monastery is celebrating its annual two day gustor festival today and tomorrow (27-28 October 2018). #travel #travelgram  #travelblog  #travelblogger #travelstories  #travelphotography  #tourism #incredibleindia #jammuandkashmir  #ladakh #leh #thikseymonastery  #thiksaygustor #gustor #buddhism #monastery  #adventure #himalayas #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #culture #festivals #religion
Located on Pamba river around 50 Kms from Munnar and 10 Kms from Marayoor, Thoovanam waterfalls are said to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Kerala. It is located inside Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. Best part of the waterfalls is that it is not accessible by road. The waterfall has to be reached by 4 Kms trek from Alampetty Checkpost, which is situated on Munnar - Udalampet highway. Afterall. there is an effort needed to see this beauty. This cascading falls is a wonderful place to enjoy the nature, dip & swim in the crystal clear water. Trek through dense forest amidst serene environment also provides a great opportunity for animal sighting.  #travel #travelgram  #travelphotography  #travelstories  #travelblog  #travelblogger  #tourism #incredibleindia #kerala #keralatourism #godsowncountry #munnar #waterfalls #pamba #thoovanam #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #trekking #chinnar #wildlife #adventure #ktdc #marayoor
A 12 year wonder! Neelakurinji flowers blooming at Eravikulam National Park near Munnar in Idukki district of Kerala. Unprecedented floods in August had almost ruined the whole blooming of Neelakurinji flowers in Neelgiri hills. They did bloom again, not that much but still good enough to quench the thirst of the nature lovers who had waited impatiently all these 12 years to seee these hills turn blue! You still have few days to see them, before they go into hibernation for another 12 years.  #travel #travelgram  #travelstories  #travelblog  #travelblogger  #travelphotography  #kerala #munnar #keralatourism #idukki #eravikulamnationalpark #ktdc #photography  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #flowers #neelakurinji #kurinji #neelgiris #nature #blooming #teacounty #nationalpark
Water in full flow at Mattupetty Dam near Munnar in Kerala! Imagine, just two months back, this whole height, upto the level of camera, was fill with water when Kerala was in grip of catastrophic floods. But the God's own country is back on its feet. This long weekend, Munnar and surrounding areas were packed with beaming tourists enjoying the unfiltered views of nature.  #travel #travelgram  #travelphotography  #travelstories  #travelblog  #travelblogger  #incredibleindia  #kerala #godsowncountry  #munnar #keralatourism  #ktdc #mattupettydam  #photooftheday  #picoftheday  #pictureoftheday  #photography  #dam #reservoir  #water #waterfall
