Making way for India’s elephants
New Delhi: The picturesque town of Valparai is nestled in the Anamalais, part of the Western Ghats in Tamil Nadu, amid 200 square kilometres of coffee, cardamom, tea and eucalyptus plantations surrounded by misty rainforests. While the countryside is spectacular, it’s also a biodiversity hot spot and well-known pachyderm country—Anamalai means Elephant Hills in Tamil. It’s also a part of the country that’s reputed for its tiger reserves, wildlife sanctuaries and reserved forest.
