Misty Mountains: Munnar Munnar At 1,500 m above sea level, Munnar is a beautiful hill station in Kerala which was also once the summer retreat of the erstwhile British rulers. Munnar is famous for its sprawling tea plantations, many of which were started by the British and are now run by the Tatas. View of Munnar town perched atop the hills of the Western Ghats The rolling hills of Munnar carpeted in lush green… …will leave you enchanted with their pristine beauty. The ghats are a hotspot for biodiversity… …with a rich flora and fauna. Thankfully, Munnar has pretty good roads to drive on, perfect for road-tripping! With mesmerising views such as this, it is hard not to stop your car every now and then to take a click! …and of course, for a warm cup of tea in the cool mountain air… …straight out of the tea factory! A visit to the serene Mattupatty lake is also well recommended when visiting Munnar… …or you could simply lay back and watch the sun set into the misty mountains from your hotel room!
