beauty behold! all else can wait!

i know, i know..so many stories to be covered here..
but the travels have been so many and in quick succession that I hardly get time to pen..
the last few days was spent in south TN- Ambasamudram and Tirunelveli side..
oh man! what a beauty.. the people, water bodies, clean rivers, many falls and all those virgin forests near maanjolai..it was a feast..
for years i have been wanting to go and spend some time in those areas..but just couldnt make it..
but a visit to one of our Model farms (hey even Kaani.org is pending here..but have a qwik peek now and about our model farms which will show case ecological and economical sustainability of a farm in eco friendly ways)in Kadaayam/alwarkurichi led to this fantastic bonus.

heard of mudanthurai tiger sanctuary? the dams above papanasam falls? man! those were really beautiful forests..and then the icing was a virgin forest- almost private one called maanjolai! even the road leading to it is private..it prolly was enjoyed only by brits and later on passed on to the Bombay Burmah tradinghttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif company who owns all those tea estates and the tea factory today..There is no commercial activity or hotel..one cant go and stay or spend time out there..then there is the Kodaiyar above this forest, which is a dam and has Electricity board active and nothing else..
all the way was pristine beauty..i dont even know if i should actually chronicle such virgin areas, lest more people go and spoil it!
some places reminded us of swiss..really! such calm, thinly populated and neat villages at an altitude..
W & me havent seen something as cute and beautiful like this after sikkim in India!
a sample here:

    Can't believe that Tamizh nadu's southern districts have such verdant places. One has heard of Ootty, Kodai, Munnar , Tirunelveli etc,.

    In school days I had a nice friend who was from Ambasaumudram. I am eager to know more about the place and if possible go around them.
    Thanks.
