A number of amphibians are endemic to the Western Ghats and the area has become a hotspot of discovery of new species of frogs in the last decade. Welcome to one of our most eagerly awaited Herpetofauna photography workshops at Munnar, a heaven for macro lovers. The participants of this workshop will experience a whole new world of endemic lesser fauna of the Western Ghats while trekking through the forests and walking down the trails.
