Set in the lap of God’s own country, Munnar remains till-date one of the least spoilt destinations of the world. Sanctuaries, reservoirs and more than 12,000 hectares of tea fields have helped retain Munnar as a hill resort.

The hill station is situated in the Idukki district of Kerala and derives its name from the confluence of three mountain rivers- Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. In Tamil, the word 'munnu' means "three" and 'aar' means "river".

It was in the late 1800s that the first tea plantations were set up in Munnar, a hitherto untouched mountain land. Low-riding clouds, cascading waterfalls, unending expanse of green and a pleasant respite from southern India’s humidity create a picturesque surrounding.

As you go up the hills through the twisting roads sandwiched between the valley and the hills to Munnar, nestled in the undulating mountain ranges of the southern Western Ghats, your mind becomes cool and light as the breeze around. Its inescapable natural beauty lures scores of tourists each and every year from not only India but also from abroad. The major highlights of Munnar are its remarkable ambiance, lush green tea gardens, mesmerizing lakes, dense forests and a cool salubrious climate. The word ‘Munnar’ means three rivers, as it is located at the confluence of three mountain streams, Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. Once, Munnar was the summer resort of the British government in South India. There is much more about Munnar that simply cannot be put in words. Be totally informed about this magnificent hill retreat before embarking on a tour.
