You know you must be in Munnar when you find yourself surrounded by cascading waterfalls, long, winding roads and landscaped (read: well-manicured) tea gardens. As if the atmosphere itself doesn’t make you feel like you are taking a walk in the clouds, the fresh mountain air takes you higher. Located in the Idduki district of Kerala, this beautiful hill station is located at around 1500 m above sea level. Rubber, coffee, spice and tea plantations are abundant, and exploring these lush zones can offer you a refreshing and highly sensory experience.
Elsewhere in Kerela, take a boat ride in a house boat and experience the blissful backwaters; drive around the Eravikulam National Park to get glimpses of elephants, tigers, leopards, squirrels and deer; or if you enjoy trekking, come to Munnar. Writers, artists and photographers have been known to be attracted to Munnar. It’s enchanting and inspiring all at once.
