i am glad you persisted in taking pictures. i got to see them
i am happy i persisted as well as it was quite an adventure. we almost cancelled the trip because of the floods but after speaking to really pleasant forest officer, we postponed the trip to October.
once we reached Munnar, we decided to visit Eravikulam on the first day of the trip which was fortunate for us as Eravikulam WLS was closed
from the next day due to approaching cyclone.
