The Sigur Plateau is at the centre of the Nilgiri Hills and Eastern Ghats and is a crucial area of wildlife habitats as it links up two regions.
Through an of the Nilgiri Natural History Society we started the interactive trail at 08:30 am from Vazhaithottam (Keystone Resource Center) where we were informed about the trail and told that it was an easy to medium level of trek.
The Sigur Plateau offered breathtaking views of the unique floral diversity as well as the Moyar Falls. The place was excellent for trekking and with a resource person, Senthil Prasad, with much knowledge about the plateau we were able to enjoy the beautiful adjoining forest areas, hilly terrain and the enchanting wildlife. In spite of the oppressive heat, we were rewarded with sightings of numerous elephants, the spotted deer, the common langur and the sambar. Bird lovers would also find the place interesting due to the amount of birds we were able to spot.
