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.
