Gallery: Kalpetta/Mudumalai/Mysore, India

After leaving Kochi I enjoyed a whirlwind tour through several places in the south before travelling over to the east coast. First was Kalpetta, where I enjoyed hiking through beautiful hills and saw the incredible Stone Age carvings of the Edakkal Caves. Next I spent one night at the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary, where I saw elephants in the wild – a wonderful experience (and it happened to be my birthday!). I also visited Mysore and the city’s spectacular palace.

  1. Its amazing how much of India you have already covered through your posts. I think you have seen way more places than most Indians too. I am glad you love my country and perhaps seeing her the best possible way by giving her time.
