Water-colour painting of mountain peaks in the Western Ghats by William Robert Houghton (1826-1897), c.1878.

The Western Ghats run parallel to the western coastline of India from Gujarat in the north to the southern tip of the country, covering an area of 160,000 square kilometres. They are covered with beautiful forests and are the source of many of India’s most important rivers such as the Kaveri in Karnataka.
