Day 1

We ( A group of seven friends) started took a flight from Mumbai to Cochin, the nearest airport to Munnar. We had had planned the trip just a few weeks back since we had a couple of days to spare.
Having the option of choosing between a rental car with a driver and a zoomcar we preferred to drive it ourselves.
The trip from Cochin airport to Munnar was just 116 km but it being a hat road took us around 3.5 hours to reach with some steep climbs and moments of sheer fear when our car stopped Midway on the slope and we had to come back reverse before we could accelerate again.
We reached at around 6 in the evening, we were staying at Club Mahindra for one of our friends was a member there.
