Sunset At Parambikulam Dam

While sailing in the serene waters of Parambikulam Dam in Kerala, we were lucky enough to witness this beautiful sunset. At this point, the reflection in the water made such a symmetric view that it was simply breathtaking.

And the golden glow certainly adds to the beauty of the scene.

The Solitary Boat

This was a fine evening in Parambikulam – the Sun set down leaving its red and golden hues in the sky, everyone was headed home, but the solitary boat remained moored in the middle of the lake. Everytime I look at this photo, it leaves me with a sense of loneliness.

Top Slip @ 10mm

The route to Parambikulam passes through Top Slip, which is another amazing place to be. As we got down from the hill, we stopped for a while to savor the moment.

And yeah, that is our car that took us through all the bumpy roads up there.

Leaves of gold

After we finished the trek at Parambikulam, and were about to leave, we found this beauty resting below a tree trunk. Simply could not resist the urge to take a shot of this beautiful golden ( or copper ) leaf.

Racket Tail Drongo

This was the most elusive bird of all. The moment I would try to snatch a pic, it would fly away with its beautiful tail fluttering in the air as if teasing us. After at least half an hour of effort, during which we maintained a yogic silence for quite some time, we managed to catch a glimpse of this elusive bird.

Black-rumped Flameback or Lesser Golden-backed Woodpecker

What a colorful bird – we were glued to it from the time we spotted it. It would flutter around from branch to branch in a frantic motion, then sit around on some thick branch for a while and knock the wood with its sharp beak. After a couple of knocks, it would raise its head, look around in all directions and if there is no danger nearby, it would continue with its pursuit.

Tunnel spider spins its web

Parambikulam is very rich in flora and fauna. On the trek, we found lots of spiders with their webs spread around in grass, but one of the peculiar spiders we found is called the “Tunnel Spider”. The name comes from the shape of its web – yeah, its shaped like a tunnel.

Two of a kind

After a night stay in the tent, we went for an early morning trek after breakfast. We were lucky to find an elephant with its baby as soon as we had started and they gave us a good chance to steal some nice pics while they broke some twigs for breakfast.

Ah, forgot to mention, this was at Parambikulam.

The Door To The World Below

While roaming around the shopping area in Parambikulam, we noticed this battered door lying on the floor. It seemed very real, as if it guarded the entrance to the world below.

Parambikulam Dam

During the safari at Parambikulam, we drove down to the Parambikulam Dam. The landscape was breathtaking and this is one of the several 10mm shots that I took covering the dam.
