If Kerala is God's own country, Munnar is the heaven on Earth". Joshi Chetta's voice still resonates with me, as we sat on the ledge of Letchmi estate and hit Absolut. All the while experiencing this view.
My brother Avinash and me left Bangalore on our Enfields, at 5 in the morning. Munnar is a 550 km long ride and the highway has been maintained quite well . The Sunrise on the outskirts, crusing at 80Kmph, the RE insignia on the odometer. It was very satisfying.
The Salem-Erode highway is a great track to test the limits of your bike. From Triumph Tiger to BMW K 1300 R, you can find riders zoom into the horizon. After a couple of breaks and having lunch en route, we arrived at Theni and decided to stay the night at The Orchid Inns.
