Green, Green Grass Lands


This picture of beautiful grass land was taken in Horton Plains. Grass lands are bordered by thick forests. These lands are home for many wild animals. Herds of Sambhurs are a common site in these areas and there are quite a few carnivores living here. Although it is not an easy task to spot them, a few leopards also roam these grass lands.

And yeah, living in its neighborhood is a privilege indeed. Makes you feel like you have a paradise, all to yourself. =D

Horton Plains is amazing. The only thing that ticks me off is the rubbish that people seem to leave behind. Is it that hard to clean up?

Hi Dev,
It is not that hard to clean up for sure, but then again need to concentrate more on preventive mechanisms. Atleast now they have started very stern rules where no one is allowed to take any polythene or plastic throw away items. Thanks for your comments!
