|This is Valparai, the town located on the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border. This is on the way to Solayar Dam. The only way of income to the town is through the coffee and tea plantations . |
Valparai is a hill station and Municipality in Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. This is located 3,500 feet above sea level on the Anaimalai Hills range of the Western Ghats, at a distance of 95 km from Coimbatore and 55 km from Pollachi. There are 40 hairpin bends on the way to Valparai from Azhiyar. While major portions of the land is owned by private tea companies, large forest areas continue to be out of bounds. The Government of Tamil Nadu in collaboration with ITDC initiated Tourism promotion through infrastructure development including Resort hotels and Amusement parks to attract tourists.
Valparai experiences a pleasant climate throughout the year. Valparai receives high rain showers from June to October. The climate is suitable for cultivation of tea, coffee, cardamom and cinchona.
PS:- I have used Canon 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 USM lens to take this picture
