Just when we thought winter was over, a surprising weather anomaly occurred when the temperature in Munnar dropped below zero degrees. We see the impacts on the ground, both positive and negative, as this sudden drop in temperatures sends travelers living around Munnar into disarray.
We don’t often associate sub-zero temperatures with places in the south of India. However, with this recent development in which the temperature of Munnar has dropped below zero degrees, an unexpected increase in the number of tourists is expected in the coming days.
Effect of below zero temperature in Munnar
Although temperatures around or below zero degrees are nothing new in Munnar, local residents of Munnar are not used to seeing such lows till the end of February.
Promotion of tourism is welcome
Since most people living in South India do not get to see the winter season, seeing the temperatures in Munnar drop to this level will encourage travelers to step out and experience the cold in Munnar firsthand. Since it is already a popular weekend getaway for many people living in big cities like Kochi and Bangalore, Munnar is a welcome change in scenery and temperature.
Tea crop badly affected due to low temperature
According to a government official in Munnar, as the temperature in Munnar dropped below zero degrees, tea leaves worth around Rs 24 lakh were lost due to frost on tea gardens. This can be added as another effect of climate change in the world as local people feel the negative impact of this weather anomaly on tea production.
