Majestic Nilgiri Tahrs


A herd of endangered species of mountain goats: Endemic to the Nilgiri Hills of the Western Ghats in Kerala, these are the majestic Nilgiri Tahrs. Brought back from the brink of extinction, these unique mountain goats now live and prosper with adequate protection. They have now become a favourite sight for those who visit the renowned hill station of Munnar, where the Nilgiri Tahrs can be seen in herds at very close range in the Eravikulam National Park.
