Can you imagine anything more refreshing than a walk in the misty valleys with nascent rays of sun caressing your face? Can any spa in the super luxury abodes match the rejuvenating effect of the clear springs cascading down the rocky mountains? You can never find a better place than Munnar, the tea garden of God’s own country, to have the perfect break you were waiting for all these years.

Among the hill stations of India, Munnar has a unique place with its ever charming climate and super cool atmosphere. You can have a face to face with nature’s wonders where ever you go in this tea garden which made it the favorite holiday home of the westerners from time immemorial. Munnar is not at all spoiled by the hectic pace of city life, here people still find time to celebrate and enjoy the nature up to the brim. Being one among them is the best experience one can have in life time. Learning the local wisdom, cuisines, customs, folk art and songs will fill you with ecstasy.

Nilgiri Tahr, a rare species among deers, is indigenous to Munnar hills. Many wild life photographers and nature lovers spend hours on end in the valleys to get a glimpse of this species facing extinction. Neelakurinji (scientific name) which blooms in the valley is another great sight one can have. Munnar is also a place for farm fresh vegetables untouched by the modern pesticides and harmful chemicals.

Above all, Munnar is synonymous to tea. Famous international brands including Kanan devan and TATA Tea found their origin from the gardens of this misty dream land. A sip of tea even from the wayside tea shops will imprint the taste on your tongue which will linger for years. Green Munnar always welcome honeymoon couples to her misty lap. Enjoy Munnar…
