Day 1 - Getting to Valparai
Bored of getting suggestions saying that Munnar is the best hill station to visit down south.? Well, here is something different. Valparai is a hill station in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. First, get to the nearest places like Coimbatore, or Cochin by Flight, or get a train to Palakkad. From there, you can hire a cab or get to Valparai by Bus (Public Transport). It is hardly a 6 hour drive from these places mentioned. You get a plenty of homestays, hotels, and guest houses in the main city of Valparai.
Day 1 - Local Sightseeing
The way en'route Valparai is so beautiful that you would stop around every corner. The way up there is around 30 hair pin ends, and each of it offering a dramatic view of the city down the hills. You get to see many hills, tea plantations and view points on your way up to main city. This covers half of what the place has to offer you. So, the first day itself...you cover a lot of spots and reach the town and get a place to stay.!
