Shades of Monsoon from the ‘Scotland of India’

Coorg, the ‘Scotland of India’ is one of the best places in India to plan your monsoon holiday. Recently, I was there at Honey Valley, a great eco tourism initiative in Coorg. While I was there on my 3 day holiday, I was intoxicated by the steady monsoon drizzle, the fresh mountain air, the delightfully full waterfalls and the new shades of GREEN all over.

A natural moment 
Below are some of those monsoon shades in pictures. I know that these pictures are a far cry from feeling the nippy monsoon weather in the Western Ghat mountains, but I am hoping that it somehow is able to bring out the magic.
