Posting again the last set of pictures of the beautifull vistas of Valparai that kept us spellbound.

The evening brought in the chill and musty smell of the wet mud with little tiny lights shimmering through the mist. We spent a long time looking at the glow worms creating a magical scene of little twinkling stars .

We drove through the soft misty paths into the dust infused smoke of the highways which woke us up from the dream like holiday we had at Valparai.

Wonderful travelogue coupled with those brilliant pictures. Really enjoyed your pictures Coooolcat. I have visited Valparai 4 times but never drove down to that place yet. I am looking forward to do a trip there soon.

A question. Didn't you visit the famous Balaji Temple and the Athirapalli falls?

Thank you for following my log. Yes this time there was very less story to my travelogue when compared to the ones I have written before ,as was short of time and hence made it more of a photologue. Will surely makeup for it in my next travelogue .
Regards.

Thank you so much. This time as we were travelling with our parents we decided to check into a nice place and just sit around and not do much looking around. The dams we visited or the drives we took in the estate was more because my son was restless to spend the whole day in one place. We surely will visit Balaji Temple and Athirapalli falls in our next trip.
Regards
