Munnar Holidays

Kerala's premiere hill station, this small town at 1500 meters in the Western Ghats (mountains) of eastern Kerala can be summed up in a single word: TEA. The endless, undulating green hillsides covered with the subcontinent's favorite drinkable bush are a fine place for hiking, catching a sunrise, or just hanging out enjoying the view. The town, ...

with its loud and polluted market, is unimpressive, and most visitors will probably wish to stay in the numerous guesthouses up in the plantations.

Absolutely stunning place and some of the most beautiful nature and landscape I've seen in India. The tea plantations and winding roads are a heavenly sight that will stay with you for years to come.

Love green? Come to Munnar. It's all filled with greeny and mist-clad mountains. There are many little falls all the way to Munnar. You may also see Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, home for Nilgiri Tahr, from Udumalpet route. Plan a 4 or 5 days tour Munnar to enjoy the place at its fullest.

A sculpted mass of tea plantations like a garden of the gods high up in the mountains of eastern Kerala, this is the state's classic hill station. Lovely for a couple days' stay and walks through the hills, the town itself is a bit shabby. Definitely stay up in one of the tea plantations in the hills.

We had planned a trip to Munnar. I got impressed with their best deals and I received complete details about the packages they included in my trip. Three days vacation at Munnar makes us inspiring. The beauty and serenity feels awesome. It was a wonderful experience. I would like to visit this place again through eagle wings vacations. We had wonderful experience with them. Now I planned to write my overall experience at my blog.

Munnar gives you a heavenly feeling, with the thick mist surrounding you in the middle of the plantations. The area is blessed with the natural beauty of winding lanes, misty hills, and forests full of exotic plants and wildlife. Most Visiting places in Munnar is Tata Tea Museum, waterfalls, Attukal is one of the most spectacular. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities.

Go to Munnar! Make your way there, any way you can. While I was in India (working for three months), I went there twice. It was worth it.

It's in the southwest state of Kerala, which is famous for its houseboats, backwaters and hill stations—all of which are worth seeing, if you have the time.

Fly in to Kochi/Cochin, and then hire a car (or take a bus, if you're feeling adventurous) to make the 4-5 hour drive up to Munnar, a hill-station (back in colonial times, the Indian and British elite went to Munnar and other hill-stations to escape the scorching summers).

Stay at the Kaivalyam Retreat (www.KaivalyamRetreat.com). It's a yoga retreat that offers the most delicious vegetarian, all-organic cuisine I've ever had. I lived in India for three months and travelled all over, and I can say, without a doubt, that the food here was the absolute best. Fresh, light, healthy and delicious! They also offer yoga in the morning and afternoon (not mandatory but definitely worth a try). Even for a newbie like me, it was a relaxing experience.

And if you do anything else in Munnar, make sure to take a drive around the tea plantations and take a walk through the forest near the yoga retreat. The beautiful green spirals of hills that make up the tea plantations here are just mesmerizing. During monsoon season especially, the leaves are ridiculously green. It's a sight to see.
