Talk about the blissful hill stations in the country and we are sure Munnar would be one of the top 5 in your list. The serenity, the bliss, the lush green sights, the breeze, and everything over here makes this place so unusual and yet so accepting. This hill station in the Kerela state has the most beautiful sight of the mountains covered with the tea plantations. Adding to this, one of the most delightful experiences has to be of trekking in the valleys and trails of the epic Munnar.
Munnar means three rivers and this name emerges from the fact that this was the resort of the British Raj that emerged from the confluence of three rivers. And if you wonder what is there for you in Munnar then let me tell you that in the land of hills, teas, valleys, and rivers, there are mud roads waiting for you to take a distressing walk, hair pin curves that calls for an adventurous ride, tree houses to chill like never before, and obviously go trekking and explore the hidden gems.
