About Munnar

The most popular tourist destination in Kerala is Munnar, situated at the confluence of three mountain Rivers (Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala) at the height of 1600 metres. It was the summer resort of the British Raj in South India. Miles and miles of manicured tea gardens, cardamom-planted woodlands, vast grasslands covering dome-shaped hills, exotic flora and fauna and ubiquitous brooks and silvery waterfalls all combine to give the visitor an otherworldly feeling.

Munnar is essentially a tea town. The tea plantations have now been taken over by the Tata Tea Company. The visitor is greeted with miles and miles of unending tea plantations on entry into Munnar. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji a flower which bathes the hills in blue colour once every twelve years.
