As John Muir put it, “The mountains are calling and I must go” , heading to a hill station is absolutely mandatory when it comes to adventures! Munnar, the enthralling hill station town of Kerala, was thus our penultimate destination in the trip. Spiralling through the roads for about an hour and a half, took us to our first stop- Nayamakad Falls. The simplicity possessed by little pebbles running through rippling waters would just make you feel contended, the sound of falling water, soothe your soul. Also, a small spice store just a few minutes away from the falls boasts of a collection of some of the finest tea and coffee variants in town. The specially handmade chocolates from the shop are an indeed must try! Lusciousness with melt in mouth kind of texture will certainly leave you asking for more. After having satisfied ourselves to the brim, we headed towards our best stop- the top point!
As we started scaling heights, all we could see were dense clouds cutting their way through giant Eucalyptus trees. On reaching the top point, a layer of layers of clouds brushed past our shoulders and that’s what made us feel, “Yes! We finally made it!” A stroll through the tea garden, and noticing creepers all along the track, made everything seem absolutely surreal! But, since we were in short of time, we left for our ultimate stop - the Mattupetty Dam.
Clear waters running through with fish playing along, was something pretty pleasing to the eyes. The Echo point was a top draw at this place. As we started driving towards our hotel, a feeling of dissent was starting to well up. We were to be heading to our final destination the next day..
