After months of lockdown necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, travelling is gaining steam in several parts of the country. IAS Supriya Sahu shared a stunning video of her recent getaway to the Nilgiri Mountains in Tamil Nadu that Twitter users described as "beautiful".
In the video, one can hear the rustling of the leaves and the chirping of the birds as the Indian Administrative Services (IAS) officer walks around in the crisp winter air. The Nilgiris, aptly called as the "blue mountains," provides the perfect backdrop for the tea plantations that are grown on gently sloping land. A stunning bright orange streak in the blue sky is hard to miss as the video zooms in on the Bhavani river, flowing quietly through the mountain range.
The video, which was posted on November 29, has garnered over 4,700 views, 425 likes and has been retweeted 35 times when this copy was filed.
Twitter users said the view was "lovely", with some describing it as "heaven on earth."
