I climbed these mountains as I wanted to see and photograph local plants. I was able to see those plants about which I had read.  Even in the month of October, it was very hot. Area is largely subtropical, dry, semi-ever green forest.

Topography of the area is rugged comprising of steep slopes and gullies. The main constituent of the rocks is the Limestone. The soil is Colluvial, wind deposited, dark brown to yellowish brown in color with a fine texture and well developed profile.
