Munnar Tourism

The idyllic hill station Munnar - famous for its tea estates, exotic lush greenery and craggy peaks, is located in the Western Ghats, in the state of Kerala.

Review for Marayoor, Munnar

13 hours ago by Couponsji India

Munnar is truly the home of the God, the all-encompassing verdant scenario might have enticed the lord to such extent that he decided to make the place his abode. From Munnar to Alleppey every bit of Kerala is drop-dead gorgeous owing to the heavenly natural setting. The monsoon rains make it appear more beautiful and the view from the peak of Munnar is breathtaking, a jewel from the southern part of India.

- Apply sunscreen lotion while you leave Munnar because as you descend the hills the weather gets warmer and causes sun burn. Hill stations tend to get dark rather early, so be sure to carry a torch or flashlight.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

A new hub for the honeymooners. Extremely peaceful place. The pleasant weather is always a delight for the tourists.

  What's not so Great?

Public transport for commuting in the local areas is a bit problematic. Also, Munnar does not have its own railway station and airport which makes it difficult to access.

For Whom

A very romantic place for the couples and honeymooners. Also, a favourable destination for the nature lovers and trekkers.
