We woke up early next morning to take an early morning boat ride in Munroe island. The ride took us through the backwaters throughout the village. We had a chance to see life in a small island village and take a pleasant ride.We also took a ride in the lake surrounding the resort which was very calm and serene. We cycled around the village and took a glimpse of the little backwater town. The food was very delicious, especially fried fish and prawns.
The next day we started early to bid farewell to Munnar and start for a new destination, Munroe island. Munroe island is surrounded by backwaters on all 3 sides and is a small village near the city of Kollam. We navigated through google maps to reach Munroe from Munnar. Munroe is a small peninsula village (surrounded by lake and backwaters) on 3 sides. There is a beautiful resort called - 'lake & River'. There are small boat rides offered in the backwaters and one can also cycle around the whole village. Munroe island welcomed us a beautiful sunset and we spent the night sitting by the backwaters and lake.
Munroe IslandThe short ferry journey from ferry point to Munroe Island was a retreat to the eyes. We reached Munroe Islands where our canoe was waiting for us. Canoes are easily available here either by DTPC or by private operators.The drive through the small village quickly gave a glimpse of colonial settlement there. The place was clean, scarcely populated with beautiful houses and roads surrounded by beautiful landscapes and canals.
