The Wild Valparai

Beautiful hill station, tea estates, a small town wrapped in a jungle! Lion tailed macaque, Nilgiri Tahr, Hornbills, Malabar whistling thrushes and tons of beautiful birds was all that I knew about this place before this first trip of mine. The Pixellin Valparai wildlife photography tour was a wonderful opportunity for me to join and guide a group of wildlife photographers from Bangalore. All that I knew was about the endemic wildlife available at Valparai and the photography aspect of it but hardly knew anything about the “when” and “where” part of it.
