Kerala’s Idukki district is home to the beautiful hill-station of Munnar. An erstwhile summer resort to the British, the forested hills are home to the three rivers of Mattupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru. A tea-scented daydream, Munnar’s plantations are swarmed with tourists throughout the year. Kerala’s illustrious Eravikulam National Park is situated in Munnar and is home to the endangered species of the Nilgiri Tahr. In fact, the wildlife of this Kerala town, boasting of the lion-tailed macaque and elephant herds, is a major contributing factor to Munnar’s tourism. With temperatures ranging from zero degrees to twenty-eight degrees celsius, Munnar’s terrains are scattered with waterfalls, with the most beautiful of them being the Atukkad Waterfalls. Mattupetty’s dam and dairy farm should also be on your list while you are touring Munnar. In Munnar’s Nullatanni estate, lies the tea museum which is a must-visit. And if you have time, incorporate a leisurely walk through the Marayoor Sandalwood Forests, that lies to the north of Munnar.

Weekend Getaways from Munnar  

Best time to visit - January,September,October,November,December
About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.
