HIKING IN SAHYADRIS
The Sahyadri range is the northern part of the Western Ghats, a major mountain range of India, well known for its flora, fauna and mountain tops. It runs parallel to the Arabian Sea and forms a long wall, which gathers to it monsoon clouds and has much thick forest. The northern part of this range, from the Tapi river near Surat to the Terekhol creek in Goa is called the Sahyadri. The Sahyadri range is 640 km long, north to south, and is 10 to 20 km in width on east-west axis. The height varies between 900 to 1650 m.
