Day 1

We arrived at Kochi airport late at night so the plan was to take rest overnight and start for Munnar the next day early morning. The excitement was knowing no bounds as Munnar was on the list since a long time.

Day 2

We hit the roads running by 9am with all the good vibes and lush greenery surrounding us. Munnar is to be precise 75-80 kms far from Kochi. The roads are scenic and you can find spices and home-made chocolate shops on the way. Mid way around it started to rain which made the journey even more beautiful.

Top Station is a bit on the outskirts so we had to travel a good amount of distance to reach it. But trust me the view from up there in between the tea plantations was something to die for.
