Streaks of snow hit the beautiful town of Munnar. Everything from grasses, leaves, flowers and fruits sparkled white in the morning sunshine. The breathtakingly beautiful pictures, which were hard to believe were coming from South India, soon went viral in social media, ushering a large number of tourists from all over the country to the spot.
There is a reason why winter is the favorite season for many people. Apart from Christmas and New Year falling in the season and making it festive, winter also transforms our surroundings into a wonderland. While pristine snowcapped mountains, trees and buildings are a very common sight in other countries, in India, only a few places in the North, like Kashmir or Himachal Pradesh, receives snowfall. However, 2019 has come with certain surprises.
It is very common for Munnar, a very popular hill station in Kerala, to turn really chilly during winters. However things went a little overboard this time, when the mercury dipped way beyond the normal, going sub-zero. Places like Chenduvara, Chittuvara, Lakkad, etc. recorded a -3 to -4 degree Celsius. The locals were pleasantly surprised, when they woke up to a frost covered Munnar.
