Munnar – 3 Nights
After our houseboat experience, we left for Munnar at 11.00 a.m. It was good 3 hour drive from Kumarakom to Munnar, roads are in good shape though only one vehicle may pass at a time. En-route there are beautiful tea gardens which is worth a visit. You may buy local spices and tea. Munnar is a beautiful surrounded by hills dotted with tea estates. Famous for Medicinal plants & herbs. We reached Munnar in the evening at about 5.00 p.m. We had booked cottage in Munnar in Moutain Club Resort. This was the amazing experience we had in our entire Kerala travel. Day 2 we went to the local market for shopping, had SPA in the hotel, explored the property and had delicious dinner served in the hotel. Day 3 we went to Kolukkumalai. Kolukkumalai is a small village bordering Idduki. It has highest tea plantation in the world because of the high altitude. It’s a bumpy jeep ride via the tea estate, the mind-blowing scenic views with the estate, streams, waterfalls and mist covered mountains is heavenly. You may watch the Kerala – Tamilnadu border from the highest peak of Kolukkumalai
We left for Kochi Airport from Munnar to board our return flight to Mumbai.
I could not fit in Tekkady & Wayanad in my travel plans due to time and budget constraints.
