is one of the most unspoilt hill stations in India and
is a jewel of Kerala. Located at an altitude of 6000
ft in Idukki district, it was a favorite summer retreat
of the British.
Munnar stands at the confluence of three mountain streams
- Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. Its pristine
valleys and mountains, the exotic plant life in its
forests and the aroma of spice that pervades the cool
air make it a memorable vacation resort. Today it is
full of tea plantations that keep it green all through
New Age Tours can plan a perfect trip for lovers of
the outdoor. Your Munnar vacation can
be booked online and even local transportation can be
reserved in advance. The fascinating area is a picturesque
sight, with its sprawling tea plantations, picture book
towns, winding lanes and miles of trekking. Once in
twelve years the Neelakurunji flowers blossom in the
forests and the surrounding hills are bathed in blue.
New Age Tours can guide you about the choice of hotels
and the day trips you can take from here. A Swiss dairy
farm near the Mattupetty lake and dam is well worth
a visit. The lake is a beautiful picnic spot and speed
boat rides add to the excitement.
The sprawling Kundala tea plantations and the Kundala
lake are other attractions in the vicinity.
Make a trip to Pothamedu just outside Munnar and catch
a spectacular view of the tea, coffee and cardamom plantations
all around. Hikers and climbers can trek in the area
and revel in nature’s beauty. There is another
place offering adventure tourism close by- that is Lock
Heart Leap. The mist clad hills and panoramic views
are worth a visit for everyone. Many neighbouring areas
of Munnar still exude an old world charm, such as Chithirapuram
and Devikulam. The life on the tea, coffee and spice
plantations is pretty much as it was a hundred years
ago. Let New Age Tours help you to sample a bygone era
and enjoy a memorable Munnar vacation.
