Red Carpet Treatment

Tea Estates of Valparai during a three day solo bike ride to Valparai.
As the road snakes down towards Sholayar Dam from Valparai, there are beautiful tea gardens flanked by dense forests. Being the fag-end of monsoon season, the clouds played hide ‘n seek with the mountains.

Dotting the gardens are these African Tulip Tree (Spathodea), which were in full bloom at this time.

As the flower falls, they carpet the underlying area with an assortment of flowers in various state of decay, weaving a pattern on the ground.
Above is a path that curved below the trees.
