Munnar nestled in the mountains of the Western Ghats is one of the most famous hill stations in Kerala. The hill station is surrounded by beautiful hills, tea and spice plantations which make it look like covered by green carpets.
The place is about 110 km away from the nearby airport - Cochin International Airport.
Being a hill station Munnar has cool climate throughout the year and during the evening hours, the climate could drop really low so we would like to advise the honeymooners to carry warm clothing with them while you are visiting Munnar.
Munnar is blessed by nature with its exotic hills, pristine valleys, mountain streams, waterfalls and lush greenery. The exotic beauty of the hills makes Munnar a favourite place for the honeymooners. Even though the tourist destination is up in the hills it has many resorts and hotels that provide all the modern amenities.
A walk through the aromatic tea gardens which covers the hill slopes as the leaves are covered in the morning dew will be a memorable experience. If you love to you can watch how the emerald tea leaves are turned into your favourite tea dust. At the Tata Tea Museum, you can witness the tea-processing.
Bask in the cool breeze while you are enjoying the numerous mountain streams and waterfalls that cascade down the rocks creating a treat for the eyes.
The majestic waterfalls of Munnar include Lakkam, Attukal, Nyayamakad, Chinnakkal, Kuthumkal, Cheeyappara, Valara and Thoovanam waterfalls.
While at the eco point shout your partner's name at the top of your lungs and hear your voice coming back to you.
Want to enjoy the feeling of standing above the clouds, and then visit Top Station - the highest point in Munnar. It is on the Munnar-Kodaikanal Road, it offers a panoramic view of the neighbouring villages of Tamil Nadu.
Other major attractions are the Mattupetty Dam (a perfect place to pose for some clicks and boating), Rajamalai-Eravikulam National Park that is home to the rare Nilgiri Tahrs, spend some leisurely hours around the picturesque Sita Devi Lake at Devikulam, go trekking through the hills, or go for some adventure at the Blossom International Park.
If you are lucky then you could visit Munnar at the time of the blooming of the exotic flower Nellakuriji. The phenomenon only happens once in 12 years and it is a sight to behold. Rajamala is one of the locations for this natural wonder. The flowers would cover the hill slopes like a carpet of blue and it is an ethereal experience. The last time the flowers bloomed was in 2006.
