Munnar Tourism

Munnar is a popular hill-station of Kerala perched at an altitude of 1600 metres in the Western Ghats. Famous for its tea estates, various shades of green, blankets of mist and craggy peaks, Munnar is aptly known as the 'Kashmir of South India'.

Situated on the banks of three rivers- Madupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru, Munnar is also blessed with natural view-points apart from the tea-plantations. Munnar is divided into Old Munnar, where the tourist information office is, and Munnar, where the bus station and most guest houses are located. The Eravikulam National Park, Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary and tea plantations are its major attractions.

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.
