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. It serves as the commercial centre for some of the world’s largest tea estates. In addition, Munnar has many protected areas which are home to endemic and highly endangered species like the Nilgiri Thar and the Neelakurinji.
One of the biggest tea-plantation area of South India, Munnar is one of the most beautiful and popular hill-stations of Kerala. 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.
- 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.
A new hub for the honeymooners. Extremely peaceful place. The pleasant weather is always a delight for the tourists.
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.
A very romantic place for the couples and honeymooners. Also, a favourable destination for the nature lovers and trekkers.
