Munnar

Munnar is considered one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Greeted by virgin forests, savannahs, rolling hills, scenic valleys, numerous streams, gushing waterfalls, sprawling tea plantations and winding walkways, Munnar is one of the most picturesque locations in the world.

Situated 1600 m above sea level, Munnar was a popular retreat for the British. It has now evolved into a proper tourist town with a number of resorts, hotels and restaurants coming up in the area. It has a host of well-maintained trekking trails and picnic spots. It is also famous for the special Neelakurinji flower that blooms here every 12 years. The hills turn blue and nature lovers come in large numbers to view this natural phenomenon in person.

The Eravikulam National Park is one of the main attractions in Munnar. Visitors get to catch a glimpse of the rare Nilgiri Tahr during certain times of the year along with herds of elephants, sambar and gaur. The climate is perfect for a vacation and walks around the town are extremely refreshing.
