This series of photos was taken by the river bank of the Moyar, which originates from the upper Nilgiri Hills and flows through the park. The beautiful surroundings were mesmerizing and had an almost magical quality.

After a day and a half in Ooty, we were picked up by one of Nachi’s friends who drove us, at a sensible pace, back down the mountain to Mudamalai National park. We stayed at a small hotel in a very small town literally on the edge of the park. The hotel was great: the staff were friendly; the rooms were large and spacious; each room also had an enclosed front porch where we spent our evenings. Each night we could be found on the veranda playing a card game called “Shithead” and drinking cold Kingfisher Beer, which was so refreshing after days spent in 36 degree heat.
