@Mysticeyes - your earlier thread about rustic tamilnadu forced me to take a trip through the same route. Now I am tempted to go once again seeing this thread and the pictures you have put up. Brilliant!

@ sanjayc - next time, make sure that you pack the camera even if you forget to pack your better-half along with you

@ getsriram - hope you had a nice vacation. let the pictures flow

@ sushrutha - thanks for sharing the link. I can only dream of writing such detailed travelogues. Hats off to Samurai

@ Nutty Nair - and where are the pics after your trip through the rustic tamilnadu? which all places did you go through? planning another trip?count me in please, afterall, we are 'trivandrians', right?

@ mallumowgli - thanks buddy. wish life could be like 'that' one day.

@ joshguy - shenkottai can be reached through trivandrum - thenmala route or through trivandrum-nagercoil-thirunelveli route. there are many more routes and the off-beat routes are the best. you can get to see the untouched rural side

here are some more pics:

Very beautiful photographs. Have seen so many beautiful village scenes from umpteen number of movies and I always used to wonder where those places might be. Your photographs of these places might answer lots of my questions .

@Mysticeyes - This was the route I took. The same as the one you took, I think.
Tvm - Nagerkoil - Panangudi - Kalakkad - Ambasamudram - Thenkasi - Shenkottai - Aryankavu - Thenmala - Nedumangadu
I usually go in my bike for these trips. I am waiting for the rains to abate for the next ride.
I found this really old, beautiful temple on the way.
