Vazhachal Forest

Vazhachal Forest

Perhaps we might not associate the south of India with dramatic landscapes, but the mountains that border Kerala and Tamil Nadu have some impressive peaks and river valleys, forest reserves and wildlife sanctuaries.

This is the Chalakkudy River Gorge in the Shoylar Reserve Forest. Just a short way downstream are the Athirappilly waterfalls which I would love to visit in the wet season.
