Chat with the local conservation experts (ncf-india.org) and visit their impressive information center close by. The Anamallais are home to an abundance of wildlife - panthers, gaur (Indian bison), lion-tailed macaques, wild boar, malabar squirrels, hornbills and scarlet minivets. Bring along a pair of binoculars and borrow a bird book from the library and set out bird watching. Take a drive at night under the spectacular starry skies or just listen to my people’s tales of unexpected elephant visits!!
