Munnar Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Munnar Overview

Think of Kerala and you’ll think of palm-fringed beaches and the blue backwaters. As much as these are part of its charm, there are lots of other interesting places in God’s Own Country, including a hill station that you mustn’t miss for the world. Cosseted by clouds, wrapped in gossamer layers of mist, and dressed to the nines in reams of green gold, Munnar is a traveller’s paradise that can easily be on top of your itinerary. Known as the High Range of Travancore in the days of yore, the rolling tea estates draped over the hills are some of the highest tea plantations in the world. Located on the Kannan Devan Hills and situated at 1,600 meters above sea level in the Indukki district of Kerala, this tea town, which has now been taken over by Tata Tea, was once the summer retreat of the British Empire. Well-loved for its pleasant climate, crisp mountain air and an abundance of green, Munnar is just as popular with tourists from India and across the world now. Whether you want to sit by a lake and enjoy a picnic lunch, walk through tea estates or experience the call of the wild, this cosy hill station has several favourable options for you. Travellers with a penchant for adventure activities can also enjoy their fill of trekking, hiking and angling in this tea town. Munnar, which derives its name from the word ‘moonu aar’, which means three rivers and refers to the rivers Madupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru that flow through this place, has all the ‘ingredients’ for the perfect holiday recipe.
