The moment roads start climbing upwards with sharp curves, the only colours you can see are green of the tea leaves and blue of the sky. Patches of white clouds dot the expansive view making you think if it were all a gigantic masterpiece by a godly painter.
Mist engulfs the top of mountains as if keeping in secrecy the best that Munnar has to offer.
The name Munnar comes from the three (moonu) rivers (aaru) Madupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru which flow through this town. There is much written about the Neelakurinji, wild orchids in violet, but to actually be there at the time it blooms is something that words or photographs can't explain.
Abode of the British during summers, Munnar has a close understanding of western ideologies and still holds that old world English charm to some extent but strong local cultures defines the lifestyle of the people here.
At an approximate height of 1500 metres above sea level, Munnar is home to around 60, 000 people. There is much to see, do and feel in and around Munnar and the more you spend time, the less you feel you have experienced this majestic hill station.inn-right-content
