Every time you visit the same place you get a little closer to the place and explore more and more, The last I visited Munnar was maybe 15 years back, trust me this place is full of lush greens, lofty mountains and Tea Estates all around, a huge variety of Flora and Fauna.

The best time to visit Munnar is considered from the months of December to February. Honestly, there are plenty of places to visit and things to do like Trekking, camping, boating, bird watching, hiking,and photography are some of the exciting activities.

I went during January and this was my first vacation in 2019, tagged my friends along and this trip was planned for 2 nights 3 days and yes, we did try to cover most of the important places.

We took a direct bus from Namma Bengaluru-Munnar , Its convenient to go by a sleeper coach. The Top Notch of our trip was our stay at Blanket hotel and spa. They are the top 5 star hotels in Munnar and they believe that luxury is the best experience they can provide to their customers, this place is perfectly situated in between lush green Tea Estates, with the view of Attukad Waterfalls. We were on the lap of nature, almost felt like home seeing the greens and fresh air every breath. They say it right Nature is not a place to visit but it is home. This hotel is more like an experiential hotel, where they offer a lot of exciting activities while we stay. The rooms were built with the most scenic view with the infinity pool and most importantly Staff were so friendly and they were always available when needed. (Brownie points for this)

Day 1

Day1.

Day 1 was mostly 'Chill and fill' day as we explored the property leisurely, chilled by the poolside for hours long and we filled our food bag with all the delicacies prepared by the in house restaurant for us, also we got a chance to cook with the chef and we did prepare Malabari Veg Curry, Tomato Rice, and Mix veg Thoran. I had so much fun doing this activity.

Day 2

Day 2:

Mountains woke us up and we were called to lose ourselves in amidst of nature. I and my friend woke early and explored the nature and headed towards the Waterfalls near the property, this was the most adventurous walk ever, we entered the prohibited area and the paths were actually dangerous. Somehow we reached our destination and wore our invisible crowns for all the hassle we took.

Visited KFDC Florticulture centre, a Scenic botanical garden with greenhouses full of rare flowers, succulents & other specimens.

Our next stop was Mattupetty Dam and lake, it's a concrete Gravity dam built in the mountains of kerala,with the most scenic view. I am sure a place to take Loads of pictures.

Our last stop was Top Station- got its name from the fact that it was the uppermost railway station located in the Kundala Valley. At this highest point, you may feel that the clouds are just a hand touch away from you. The destination is famous for the Neelakurinji flowers (Strobilanthus), which used to bloom once in twelve years. The bloom of these rare flowers will give the destination a different bluish look. The last flowering season of Neelakurinji was on 2018. We need to trek down for atleast for 45 minutes , reaching down will definitely be a visual treat

(Note: trekking back is definitely a task,carry water bottles, and shoes is a must for comfort.)

We were heading back to our hotel and on our way, we stopped in the midst of forests for some pictures, It was totally worth it. (got friends who are just crazy as me for pictures:P)
