Discover The Ghats India

The western Ghat mountain range in the west of the country, is covered with dense tropical forests and plantations of teck wood, sandal wood and ebony. From the Nilgiri mountains, the relief rises up to 8,649 feet at Mount Dodabetta and hosts a few health resorts, a renowned holiday resort, suitable for tea, coffee and cardamom plantations. The region equally holds natural game reserves populated with elephants, wildcats and large swarms of birds. Much lower, the Ghat transform into interior tablelands and fertile floodplains. In the North deltas, they take the form of steppes. In the south, the eastern Ghat forests bonded with the western Ghats of the Kerala, are more scattered and give room for the Savana.
