Munnar Tourism

Munnar, breathtakingly beautiful and a haven of peace and tranquility,is an idyllic tourist destination in God's own country.Set at an altitude of 6000 ft in Idukki district, Munnar was the favored summer resort of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days.

Unending expanse of tea plantations, pristine valleys and mountains, exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests,and an aroma of spice scented cool air - yes! Munnar has all these and more. It's the place you would love to visit - it's one place you would wish never to leave.

Popular tea town

One of the most popular hill stations in India, Munnar is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala.It is located at 1600 mts above sea level.Sprawling tea plantations, picture book towns, winding lanes, trekking and holiday facilities make Munnar a unique experience. Munnar is essentially a tea town. The tea plantations have now been taken over by the Tata Tea Company.

Attractions
The visitor is greeted with miles and miles of unending tea plantations on entry into Munnar. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji, a flower which bathes the hills in blue colour once in twelve years. The Neelakurinji bloomed last in 2006 AD. Munnar also has the highest peak in South India - Anaimudi - which towers over 2695 mts and is an ideal spot for campers who would like to do some trekking .

Origin
The Duke of Wellington is reputed to have been the first European visitor to Munnar, in 1790, but this is unlikely. In the early 19th century, the headman of the villages of Anchanad, just to the north of the high ranges, was named Kanan Thevar. It is said that travellers from Madurai to the West coast passed through these villages and named these hills after him.
