Lockhart Tea Bungalow is located in Munnar, in the Idukki district of Kerala. Nestled comfortably amidst the sprawling tea gardens along the foothills of Chokarmudy, the 150-year-old mansion is quite a sight to behold. The verdant surroundings and two luxury bedrooms are ideal for a family of four.
How to reach
Munnar is, thankfully, a bit away from civilisation and hence is always relatively less crowded as compared to other hill stations down south. The last 100km to Munnar can only be covered via road. Depending on where you're coming from, here are all the options on reaching this beauty.
Via flight: The closest airport is situated in Cochin, which is connected to all major cities. Cochin Airport is 125km away from Munnar, and direct taxis are available from outside the airport. They usually cost anything between Rs. 2,500 to 3,500.
Via train: Again, the closest railway station is in Cochin. Direct KSRTC buses are available from near the station at regular intervals. If travelling with family, you can opt for A/C Volvos.
Via road: If travelling from nearby towns and cities such as Kozhikode, Wayanad, Alleppey, Coimbatore, Madurai, Mysore, etc., one can always drive down to the property directly. It's a smooth road with numerous roadside restaurants for refreshments.
