One of the oldest mountain ranges, the beautiful Nilgiri Hills, is a part of the Western Ghats and is situated at an elevation of 3000 to 9000 ft. These mountains are spread across the borders of Tamilnadu, Karnataka, and Kerala - states in the southern part of India. Picturesque with its smoky haze, rolling grasslands, dense sholas, waterfalls, and vast expanse of tea plantations, the Nilgiris are a truly breathtaking kaleidoscope of visual treats. The Nilgiris, also known as the Blue Mountains, are named after the blue strobilanthes flower that grows in the area. The region is dotted with Blue Gum and Eucalyptus trees and spices like cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, and cloves. These hills are home to the pastoral Toda tribe and tea gardens that create the famous Nilgiri tea. The teas are known for their slightly fruity and minty flavor. The growing season in Nilgiri is unique. The teas are harvested all year round as they experience two monsoons each year. With beautiful aromas and mellow flavors, Nilgiri teas are refreshing and can be enjoyed any time of the day.
The Nilgiri marten lives in the hills of the Nilgiris and parts of the Western Ghats. It is the only marten species native to southern India. Owing to its reclusive nature, it is extremely hard to study. It is listed as vulnerable with only 1,000 species left in the wild.
