Western Ghats - A Vanishing Legacy


Check out this stunning drone video of India's Western Ghats Mountains, compliments of contributor Rahul Vellithodi.  This chain runs roughly parallel to India's southwestern coastline, from Gujarat to Kerala in the south.  With their highest peaks at about 2.7k meters (around 8.7k ft.), they are only about a third as tall as the Himalaya's.  What they lack in height though they make up for in biodiversity; these mountains are home to thousands of plant and animal species that aren't found anywhere else in the world.
