Default Re: Stunning Valparai

Great place valaprai and it is not known to people in kerala or tn that much.All the land is owned by estate groups and so there is dearth of good accomodation.It is not a good idea to visit valparai in monsoons because the place is infested with lot of leeches and it is quite impossible to venture out without getting bitten by one of them,but the place is too beautiful in the monsoon to visit too.There has been cases of leopard attacks recently increasing so not safe to venture out in the dark.

That is precisely the attraction of places like Valparai. Wild & beautiful. It remains beautiful because there is not much for 'tourists'. I hope it remains that way forever. As for leeches & leopards; it is their home. We are the 'intruders' and we should be ready for meeting them occasionally. If you are a nature lover, a leech bite will be part of the fun of going to a place like Valparai. If leeches put you off, you'll be better off in Ooty or Kodai don't you think? Besides, you'll have plenty of accommodation to chose from.
