Kerala Trip, August 2017

Mananthavady, Kerala, India

Recently I had the chance to visit Mananthavady in Kerala. Kerala is also known as God's own country because of its natural beauty. It is approximately 300km far from Bangalore.

About nature, John Lubbock says -

"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books."

And here I was finally in nature where there is no artificial sounds, no pollution, and no other thoughts but just peace which mostly equals to getting relax by hours of meditation.

First time I've seen so many leeches at the same place. Here life is very peaceful until you don't encounter any leeches in your shoes.

This photostream has selected stills from this trip, all the pics are taken from DSLR for the first time.
