[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mahabaleshwar's so named "Grand Canyon" score a point over its big brother in USA. This hill station gets second largest rain fall in the world after Cherapoonji which is in North East India. So the result is a total transformation of topography in June-September-its just green and greener offering an incredible vista!

Deccan basalts at Mahabaleshwar, India:-

Fortyone successive flows of the Deccan Traps have been investigated at Mahabaleshwar, India, and the rocks from the twenty two different flows have been newly analysed. All of these basalts are silica-saturated tholeiites; and the series shows minor gradual variation with the order of eruption. These seem to be a result of magmatic differentiation somewhat similar to that shown in the Skaergaard intrusion.
