There are some places you think are beautiful, some much more than others and some that leave you feeling all comparisons are inane. Megamalai & Highwayvs will make all comparisons inane and leave you stupefied by its sheer beauty. The Views are breathtaking, the climate perfect. The serene lake and the beckoning mountains ranges are perhaps the best `real' description of paradise. Amidst the natural beauty, it is also about wildlife sightings, treks, and picturesque walks, camping out on a mountain cliff or bathing in a waterfall.
To wake up to the call of a distant elephant trumpet, to walk beside the lake for miles across undulating hills, to walk past an elephant skull to a private waterfall or to simply sit atop a grassy cliff and be in communion with mountain peaks all around, are some other things that will become forever locked within your memory for a long, long time. Whoever described paradise must have been here before!
