Stream of Joy, Karnataka

Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu
Krishan Gopal from Delhi writes, "This is a photo of Kodaikanal Lake as seen from the upper lake view. (It) looks like a map of India!"
Rohit Dasari sends in this picture of Nisargadhama in the Coorg district of Karnataka.
"It is an island formed by the river Kaveri and is used as a picnic spot near Kushalnagar in Coorg. There are deer, rabbits, elephants, peacocks, a children's play area etc here. We were allowed to get into the water at a few safe areas. Elephant rides and boating can also be done here. It was truly a wonderful experience and it is definitely one of our favourite travel pictures."
