The white tears of the rubber tree

The Kerala Tourism board is slowly opening up its beautiful rubber plantations to eco-tourists. The quiet, thick rubber plantations, the tappers who toil almost camouflaged among the trees and even the queer smell of the drying rubber sheets are part and parcel of Kerala’s evergreen beauty. If you are ever in God’s own country, do take the time off to go for nature walks in the plantations, enjoy their soothing silence and the company of the many friendly birds, butterflies and squirrels that scuttle around.

Srijith has one of my favourite pictures of a tapped rubber tree up on his photoblog today. Do check it out here!
