Nature walks in rare trails of western ghats in kerala early in the morning listening to the beautiful calls of so many birds that are endemic to this region and migratory birds that come here only in winter. This trail needed permission from the kerala forest department with entry pass and entry fee as this area is frequented by elephants and it is not safe to go without a guide . This being the peak season for birds, the fulfillment is double with our guide gireesh cheta. The rich flora amazes me while the rich fauna amazes the children. I love the tall and huge trees that are home to plenty of species. Nature is beautiful. We need to protect and preserve it.
