    Munnar

    Hi..
    Munnar the peaceful tourist destination in God’s own country. Situated in the Idukki district of the Indian state of Kerala. The name Munnar is believed to indicate “three rivers”,referring to the town’s strategic place at the confluence of the Madhurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers. It is a beautiful, peaceful hill station enclosed with unending expanse of tea plantations. Munnar enjoys an energizing climate, with brittle mornings and sunny blue skies in the winter though as with all of Kerala, torrential rains descend during the monsoons. This hill station is marked by enormous expanses of tea plantations, colonial bungalows, rivulets, waterfalls and cool weather. It is also an ultimate destination for trekking and mountain biking. And Munnar’s greenery and cool air draws streams of well heeled honeymooners and weekenders from the metropolitan cities of South India.
