So here's from the Puneri mulgi..we flew from Pune to kochi. I got return tickets for 4 of us in 25k. That's the benefit you get when you book in advance. The kochi airport looks like an old castle which is newly decorated with English colours. Loved the feel of it!
We started off for Munnar from there. Stopped on the way for some SOUTH INDIAN snacks. At the beginning of the journey you're excited about everything and food is an important aspect when you travel.
Our driver, Mr. Eldos, looked like those villains from CHENNAI EXPRESS..me and my sister constantly giggling at his South Indian accent. He appeared like a villain, but was very quiet and shy.
The road from kochi to Munnar is a super adventurous and bumpy ride. Though the distance is not too much , it still takes about 5-6 hours to get there because of the winding ghats. The road is full of sharp turns and twists which I haven't seen anywhere in Maharashtra.
So be ready to swing from one end of the car to another.
This day ends and we check into a leisure hotel Plum Judy. Words are less to describe this place. It's absolutely amazing! Located at the highest point in Munnar,this hotel offers captivating views of the hill station and the lush green tea estates.
It offers all the modern and luxury amenities and even an inhouse restaurant. The menu is limited but food is delicious .
The staff here is very courteous and welcoming, going by the Indian hospitability.
It also has a spa which offers variety of options for relaxation.
