This is a view of the Western Ghats from one of the view points at Mahabaleshwar, in Maharashtra.

The Western Ghats, also known as the Sahyadri mountains, is a mountain range along the western side of India. It runs north to south along the western edge of the Deccan Plateau, and separates the plateau from a narrow coastal plain along the Arabian Sea. The range starts near the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra, south of the River Tapti, and runs approximately 1600 km through the states of Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala ending at Kanyakumari, at the southern tip of India. About sixty percent of the Western Ghats are located in the state of Karnataka. These hills cover 60,000 km˛ and form the catchment area for a complex of river systems that drain almost 40% of India. The average elevation is around 1,200 meters. The area is one of the world’s ten "Hottest biodiversity hotspots" and has over 5000 species of flowering plants, 139 mammal species, 508 bird species and 179 amphibian species. At least 325 globally threatened species occur in the Western Ghats.

Hi Sreya!

You present us a beautiful landscape picture. Its composition is very classical, but also very pleasant. The colours of the rocks and the earth are amazing and contrast well with the green of the forest. I also appreciate the interesting notes.

Kind regards


dear sreya, spectacular landscape ! the light is so nice and the perspective excellent.

Excellent view of the Sahyadris. Different ranges running parallel are very nicely captured from this angle. Good lighting. A very nice landscape picture.
