The lush green canopy of the long wood forest is considered one of the best trekking trails. Venturing a trekking into this reserved forest would be an adventurous tryst with the monsoons and the inhabitants of the intimidating tropical rainforest. The forest has hordes of rare endangered species, such as Nilgiri blue robin, the Nilgiri flying fox, and the Nilgiri woodpigeon,that are indigenous to The Nilgiris . The other indigenous animals of this primeval forest are some nocturnal denizens like civet cats, leoard cats and porcupines. Though the forest being dense is intimidating , the gentle drops that drips from the ferns and leaves keeps you rejuvenated. The forest, with many rare endangered species, stands as a perfect niche for wild life photography
Rangasamy pillar, a historical/spiritual place, is considered a perfect choice for mountain hiking. You would trail through forests , tea estates and other places endowed with natural wealth where wild animals can be seen at a hand shake distance. The splendid view of the Moyar river and the paddy fields of thengumarahada gives you a pleasant and a memorable experience. It's even more fascinating - to view wild animals at a far distance and birds flying under the sunset; to view the skies being wrapped under the dark clouds veiling the sun and pouring down the rain while the weather turns nippy.

The falls also has an exclusive view point from the other side of the mountain, though intimidating, would be an amazing spectacle to behold and an image that will never fade away from my eyes. It is totally a different to trek within the tea estates enjoying the fragrance of the tea leaves in such a cold climate.
