The gate to "heaven on earth". Pearl valley from above. A group of Indian women and their children at the waterfall. The women play in the water wearing their full clothes while boys and men wear their trousers or shorts. A group of Indian women and their children at the waterfall. Our driver wanted to stay in the car. We could convince him to enjoy the place, too. Crows in the trees above our heads. Rudi is recording the sounds of the birds. You will find these monkeys everywhere in India. A monkey with a stolen mango. A monkey with a stolen mango. A little temple at the bottom of the valley. A bit further in valley we found this little pond. The water has the typical color of the earth. Rudi taking a picture. Big rocks on both sides of the little lake. Big rocks on both sides of the little lake. Rudi recording the soothing sound of the flowing water. Michael relaxing. All the litter shows how popular pearl valley is as a picnic spot. Flowers growing along the path. A termite mound only a few meters off the path. Further in the valley, away from the crowded places it was quiet. A view up the hill from the floor of the valley. Lots of different shades of green of the vegetation. During the monsoon season the water cascades over these rocks. In mid-July only a small trickle flows down here. You can imagine how big the waterfall is in the monsoon season. On top of the hill is a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the valley. The second waterfall comes down here. Climbing all those stairs from the valley floor was a good exercise. And Rudi has all his photo equipment to carry. The group from the waterfall on the terrace at the top of the fall. Street vendors in Anekal. Market in Anekal. Market in Anekal. The mains street in Anekal.
