Picturesque India - Aliyar Dam & Monkey Falls

In 2010, due to various reasons I had to travel a lot. Moreover, we had several opportunities to travel with family in India! I had missed out on blogging side because of these travels and other commitments. I realized this only when I started to archive and take a back up of the photos. To do away with the guilty feeling, am trying to come up with this eleventh hour post...

Path leading to Monkey falls around 65 km from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Superb weather and no crowd...we were very much tempted to take a dip, but unfortunately we had no change of clothes...so just satisfied ourselves with waddling in the stream...

Aliyar dam is just about a couple of km from Monkey falls and is surrounded by western ghats...

Though it was a hot day, it was windy and pleasant.

The park adjoining the dam was very inviting and we settled there for a picnic lunch...

Bettle nut tree...

Another view of the western ghats...

Typical bazar meant to attract the tourists...

On the way back, we saw someone casually throwing trash out of a moving car. This made to sigh and think, when would be change?

All of your pictures are lovely this week, but I especially like the ones of the clouds and the waterfalls. They are all so nice. Would love to see the area in person. genie

Water come to me,
flow over my aging toes,
bring your soothing touch.
