Day 1

Munnar is a famous hill station, located 280 kilometers from the state capital of Trivandrum in Kerala. Famous for its natural beauty and magnificent hills, it is truly a great place to visit in India. I visited Munnar with my girlfriend in November 2018 and had spend two days there. Munnar has been an exciting place. Munnar was great to be honest. We reached Munnar on a Sunday morning. It was chilly and instantly we regretted not having brought enough warm clothes with us. After having a quick breakfast we set off to explore the town of Munnar. On the first day we rented a local auto and covered the spots in Mattupetty and Cochin directions.

Munnar had been great! If the picturesque view Munnar provided made it a pleasant stay, my company made it all the more exciting! We couldn’t stay for more than two days, but trust me, we both seriously wanted to stay there; spend a few more days traveling. If I can, I will surely go back to Munnar and relive those days again.
