Munnar Tourism & Travel Guide

this is the first time i visited Munnar with my family. i started from Chennai and reached Coimbatore by a private bus and from there i reached munnar in the next day morning again by a mini van. the travelling session from coimbatore to munnar is best when you use the roads. the most exciting moment was when you travel through the forest to reach munnar. we booked a homestay which is some 5-15 mins far away from the city in munnar. the homestay was situated in a peaceful and pleasant environment away from the chaos of the city. usually, food becomes a big problem in hill station and it did. we found a small place which serves the home food and the quality is good and prices were reasonable. on the first day we booked and cab and visited the TATA tea museum- floriculture centre- kundala lake- view points and waterfalls. we even visited a tea factory and tea making process was demonstrated to us. on the second day we got up at 3 in the morning and hired a jeep to go up the kollukkumalai hill. who so ever reading this, please dont miss this part. this is the most thrilling and one of the best thing to do in munnar. to watch the sun rise and visit the world's highest tea factory with same old machines.the whole path from the bottom to top of the hill is bumpy than you could ever imagine and there's almost no roads to get to the top. if you or any of your family member have spinal problems then i would recommend you to avoid this. the travelling time was around 2 hours not because it is that long but because of the rocks on your way (told you, "BUMPY"!!)....

About Munnar

This is the kind of place that will look good on any camera, no matter which angle you take your picture from. Emerald green hills, with mist looming over them like wandering ghosts, Munnar makes for a vacation that will be etched in your memory for years. Munnar happens to be South India's largest tea growing region, hence a walk through its aromatic tea gardens cannot be missed. For more insight into the tea industry, the Tea Museum can make for an interesting visit. Sadly the meddling of the plantation industry with the flora and fauna, causes many species to lose their habitats and become endangered, some being the Nilgiri Thar, the Nilgiri wood-pigeon, the Grizzled Giant Squirrel, the gaur, the sambar, and the Neelakurinji flower, which blossoms only once in 12 years. Consequently, Munnar is home to many national parks, such as the renowned Eravikulam National Park, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Kurinjimala Sanctuary, Amaravati Reserve Forest, Anamudi Shola National Park and the Pampadum Shola National Park, a visit to which is highly educational and peaceful. More quiet and scenic spots include Devikulam Lake and Attukal waterfalls. Munnar also caters to restless spirits, who can enjoy adventure sports such as paragliding, rock climbing, rappelling and even cycling. Some famous places to eat are Rapsy restaurant, Saravana Bhavan and Eastend, all known for their delicious non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. Munnar is easiest to access by road through state run or private buses, compared to flights since the nearest airport is in another city, Cochin. The nearest train station is in Aluva, although cabs and buses are easily available from both the places to reach Munnar.
