Nature's Love ♥ ❤❤❤ ♥

      We might have heard about a heart shape lake in some fairy tales but never thought that there is one in real life.There are enormous mysteries in the treasures of nature.Finding and getting there is thrilling experience that one should have quite often out of the hustle n bustle of today's life style.We don't have to go far to find it, its right in the India's God's own country Kerala. 

About Chembra Peak

Chembra peak is one of the highest peaks in Wayanad. It is also an exotic tourist destination. Wayanad is only 2000 feets above sea level and we have to travel another 2500 feets from Wayanad to reach Chembra. The journey to this peak amidst of the lush green grasslands will surely be a rare experience. Chembra peak is a must see destination for the tourist coming to Wayanad. Chembra offers you a spectacular natural beauty.

Tourism in Chembra

There is a beautiful lake called ‘Love Lake’ which is lying above Chembra Mountain. It was the Britishers who described the lake as a love lake. From the olden times itself, there were many tourists who visit this lake to spend their leisure time. Tourists also used to stay near the banks of this lake enjoying the scenic beauty of nature. We can also see entire Wayanad from the top of Chembra peak.The lake is believed to have never dried up. You can find the lake halfway to the peak, after getting to the lake you need to trek another halfway, which is through the dense trees of about one to two km. 

The journey to Chembra itself is an amazing feeling of rich biodiversity of Chembra Mountains. There are many rocky features and slopes which makes it an adventurous journey. One has to rest between the huge rocks or some tree shades while their journey and need to take a new breath from the pure natural surroundings. It is a perfect place for the tourists who need to be away from the noisy city and wants to absorb the beauty of nature. There is also scope for trekking here.

World's smallest Butterfly.

Western Pygmy Blue Butterfly:

Butterflies are one of the most beautiful creatures of nature, even though it lives only for a few days it makes most out of what life has to offer and lives life to its fullest. The transformation of caterpillars into a butterfly is an remarkable process in nature. Its all about the chance and luck, after it is mature and makes its chrysalis most emerges in few days and some stay in their chrysalis as long as several years...After so long a time in the chrysalis, it only takes a few hours for a larvae to emerge as a beautiful butterfly. So....did this caterpillars become a butterfly in a few short hours or in certain years..? When we understand that change shapes up...and makes us beautiful, we will patiently continue to pray, we will continue to do our daily work and give time a chance. Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on...when others have let go, we may not see it now...but everyday we live is for a purpose. We can't quit, we can't give up. Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come in time. Trails keep you strong, Sorrows keep you human, Success keep you glowing....but it's god that keeps you going. Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. If you give up when it's winter you'll miss the promise of your spring...the beauty of your summer...and the fulfillment of your fall. So how does one become a butterfly...? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar and accept the change.
