Travel India Passionate Romantic Destinations Lakshmi Sharath

High on Hills: Kudrevatti
Confession: I had not heard of Kudrevatti until a year ago. And this despite it being part of the landscape of the Western Ghats and barely an hour from my native village in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. I discovered it while I was on a long journey up the hills that took me through evergreen forests along the Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve. I fell in love with it instantly. Low-hanging clouds, grasslands, a canopy of forests, and a viewpoint which shows you three beautiful dams. Kudrevatti defines romance.
