Munnar Tourism

Munnar, the land where three streams converge and go as a single river, is one of the greenest and most beautiful places in Kerala. Largely untouched by human activities, Munnar provides you with ample opportunities for your eyes, mind and your soul, thus making it the most coveted tourist destinations in South India.

Famous for tea plantations that provide tea with a special natural aroma, Munnar was once the summer home for the British colonial rulers of India. Even now, a casual stroll through the mountain roads of Munnar would reveal the position that the colonial people gave, through the estate bungalows, and other buildings reminding you of the erstwhile British architecture. An elevation of over 1500 meters makes Munnar a cool haven even in the hottest of Indian summers, and is probably the reason for the historical and contemporary importance of Munnar.

Munnar gives you everything that your vacation needed, be it solitude, company, adventure, mystery, joviality, and what not. A good souvenir that one can take home would be Munnar tea that the counters in the plantations offer.

Munnar is close to Thekkady, and a few other favourite tourist destinations. Anamudi, the highest peak of South India is also very close to Munnar. Devikulam lake provides opportunity for sightseeing as well as boating. In Rajamalai Wildlife sanctuary, one can see elephants in their natural home.

Eravikulam national park that protects Nilgiri Tahrs is also the only place where Neelakurinji, the flower that blossoms once in 12 years, is found. Mattupetty Lake, Top Station, and the Indo- Swiss Cattle Breeding centre are other favourite destinations of people who visit Munnar.
