Munnar can be said as the splendid crown of ‘God’s own country’- Kerala. Situated at the altitude of 1600 mts to 1800 mts above sea level, this pristine valley is covered with the green carpet of huge tea plantations along with coffee and cardamom plantations and abundant exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries. This wonderful hill station of Idukki district, Kerala was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British government in South India. According to Etymology the name Munnar has derived from the two Malayalam words Muunu (three) and Aaru (river). Those three rivers are Muthirappuzha, Chanduvarai and Kundali. While you are in Munnar it may confuse you, is it this place in Scotland or in India or this century or last century. You will never believe mountains can be as charming as this. Munnar is also renowned for its peak Anamudi, which is the highest peak of Southern India at 2695 m. Besides its tea and cardamom plantations, the old-world charm of Colonial establishments is another point of attraction for the tourists.
