I and my four friends went to Camp Noel. We started on Saturday and reached back on Sunday evening. On the way we covered Waterfall. Then went to room. We came to Munnar after 3 years. While on our way back, there is tea garden on both sides. And we were able to see nice view. Clouds coming down and fog covering the area.
Munnar is like the heaven in Kerala that's what I felt about. The most adventures thing to do in Munnar is driving in mountain at your own risk and the feel when you get at the top is like nothing you have ever experienced, there is no words About the top Landscape view and the "Peace" you attain.
Compared to other hill stations I visited, the roads are good. Apart from a small patch of bad roads, most of the journey was comfortable. However, there are lots of turns and by the time we reach the hill station we have made quite a number of left and right turns.
