Got confused with the title??? God’s Own Country, Paradise, etc.
This is about a place that I had been already covered with a post titled “WHY LEONARDO DI’CAPRIO FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PLACE? A place in Idukki of God’s Own Country, Kerala.
Read it here
And if you are a bit busy I will give you a short brief.
LAVISHING GREENERY, FORESTS, AND SPICES
The place is in Idukki District of Kerala – The God’s Own Country – and it is one of the most marvelous places in the state. The Hill station is situated in the western ghats of Kerala. And unlike the concrete jungles of other cities, most of the area of this district is covered with forest and greenery. And some of the forest have wildlife and and some other have tribals too. As per the Government website, half of the area still remains forests.
Moonnar, the famous tourist destination of God’s Own Country, Kerala for both national and international travelers alike is also part of this Idukki district.
Idukki district is also known as the “Spice Garden” of the state due to the variety of spices items this district have produces and exports.
One of Asia’s highest Arch Dam is also in the Idukki district. This almost a half-century old dam still serving most of the power supply for the state.
And needless to say this place with different waterfalls, wildlife sanctuary, Tiger reserve forests, etc makes more meaning to the state’s title of God’s Own Country.
WHY Di’CAPRIO FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PLACE
The famous Hollywood actor was so mesmerized with the beauty of this place. And let me quote the Wikipedia lines regarding this
The scenic beauty of Ramakkalmedu has attracted thousands of people, including Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio has reportedly said about this place that “If there is a paradise on earth, it is here.
And in my blog post, I was not interested to include more photos of this scenic place but some of my readers are quite impressed with the scenery. Hence I thought I would make a photo feature to show some of the best photographs I am having.
And here I start……….
Hope you all enjoyed this amazing landscape.
