God's Indulgence: Munnar . Post - 1
No, these are not paintings. They are real! God's work not man's.
I was not aware that wild majestic beauty untouched by man existed so close to us.
Now i know what the poet meant when he exclaimed 'Wilderness is paradise enow'.
These pictures of Munnar were taken yesterday and the day before.
Mists and clouds blurring the distance between earth an heaven even as you watch them, occasional drizzle, green mountains and rocky mountains, the crystal purity of the sparkling water as it hops, skips, jumps down the rocks laughing with wild abandon, the river flowing by your side all the way, dense forests and large parrot green patches of grass, man's footprints in the form of rows of eucalyptus trees and tea plantations appearing like green velvet from a distance- - - This is what Munnar is made up of.
This and much more - - - -
I have not seen many places of great scenic beauty- but i cannot think how any place can be more beautiful that these mountains.
Nature at her most beautiful best - that's what you see in this paradise situated some 4000 plus feet above the sea.
