After a long break (lot of my trip reports starts like this!), spent a week in my favourite mountain range. First a few days in Thalanar valley near Valparai (main focus), then the Anaimalai foothills (Sethumadai, contour canal bank road) and, finally, Topslip. Scapes at the beginning and wildlife pics after that.
It was great to meet up with the Thadam team from Pollachi — Pravin, Keerthana and Lingesh who were kind enough to take us around Topslip and the amazing canal bank road in addition to helping out with local logistics.
