The lush greenery of the vegetation in Adilabad is giving way to a pleasant golden yellow and rusty brown as Autumn has started setting in along with the winter season. As it is still early days for the leaf-fall season, the green is still dominating the scene though there is a seemingly generous sprinkling of Autumnal colours in the famous jungles of this district.

The Kerameri hills, as seen from the popular Kerameri ghat road, offer a breathtaking view as the landscape is changing colours layer by layer. The view starts with the dark green of the agriculture fields and turns into bright yellow of the drying leaves as the vision progress upwards.

The mountain range with a dominant blue at the top completes the picture casting a spell on the beholder. Descending the ghat road brings one closer to the clusters of trees which are changing colours.

Same is the case with the thick Sarkepalli forest in Wankidi mandal and the Malini forest in Sirpur (T) mandal where the jungles beckon with differently vibrant colours. A drive to Malini from Sirpur (T) mandal head quarter village will be an experience in itself in November.
