All is fair in life even if there are slight delays! This adage is now proved as the rain has drenched the driest of the lands, beautifying nature's presence here.
A breathtaking beauty has enveloped the Atacama Desert in Chile as an year's worth rainfall has soaked the land which is known as the driest place on the Earth.
Pink flowers have bloomed and covered the land's stretch.
The region witnessed 0.9 inches of rainfall in March in a single day leading to the "most spectacular blossoming of the past 18 years". This downpour equals that of past 14 years!
Flower blossoms like this happen once in five to ten years, due to the paucity of rains. The Atacama desert is one of the few places on the Earth experiencing this kind of blooms.
The blooms will disappear in early November and the sight will return back to normal. No wonder people are travelling to this land to be a part of this phenomenal scenario.
