Munnar Hills

Munnar hill station on Western Ghats mountain ranges located in the Idukki district of the southwestern Indian state of Kerala. Munnar is situated at around 1,600 metres (5,200 ft) above mean sea level,[3] in the Western Ghats mountain range. Munnar is also called the "Kashmir of South India" and is a popular honeymoon destination.


A cup of delicious and aromatic tea is all it takes to make strangers friends, and Munnar hill station is one of such areas famed for outstanding tea production. The appearance of this facet of human enjoyment is enhanced by dews on tea-leaves caused by the lingering hazy blanket over the tea garden. This is the first image that comes to mind when the term Munnar is spoken, and it is subsequently supplemented with the other reasons for its reputation, which is why it is so popular with regular visitors as well as those who have heard it enough times to have a strong desire to see it at least once.

At around 1600 m above the sea level in Kannan Devan Hills where the mountain streams by the names- Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala confluence, one can confidently talk about the location of Munnar as the name of the place rightfully tells, the way it is pronounced. If actual point of confluence is to be seen on Munnar tour, it is at some distance from the town though the rivers flow through it.

The area surrounding the place is all hills of Western Ghats, lakes, greenery, wildlife, falls, etc allowing gaps in the consciousness to be filled by the silence of exhilaration. Such musings are impossible when mind is troubled by worries and infested with load of work, which is why Munnar in beautiful Idukki district offers much-looked-for respite.

The place divided in Old Munnar and Munnar is almost self containing when one plans vacation in south- there is past to learn from, present to ponder and enjoy and future that could be visualized from what present stands for and ready to extend. And there is much over and above in the nearby villages and town included in Munnar travel package to make the experience of Munnar as complete as it can be.

A hill destination worth setting of eyes upon!
