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.

It is better to start early morning journey early morning. So that you will be able reach the destination in time. No need to hurry during driving. Drive in constant speed. Make plan to visit the spots for the sight seeing, allot specific time for sightseeing, do not spent too much time in single spot.

We travelled to Munnar from Kochi Airport by Tavera. The journey was good and nice scenic view throughout the journey. It took 5 hours from Kochi to Munnar. Three falls and view points in between and nice time to go. Enjoyed food at small stall available through the way with lot of options available.

The route from Cochin to Munnar is via Kothamangalam and Adimali and till Kothamangalam the drive was through a typical town road but the real excitement was the drive from Neryamangalam Bridge to Adimali. On crossing the bridge it is forest area and no need to look for the sign board, we will realize it on seeing the monkeys playing on both sides of the road and branches of trees. They are harmless but occasional cases of monkeys taking the hand bags and other items from the vehicles were reported. Also, we will feel the fresh air, can hear the murmuring of the forest and the drive after the check post is remarkable. The drive through the zigzag road was awe-inspiring and we had to be careful about the vehicles coming down from Munnar.

On reaching Valara we stopped to see the waterfalls and several vehicles were parked there. Luckily the waterfall was in full stream due to the pre-monsoon rains. After spending some time there we continued our journey and on reaching Adimali town we bought water bottles and snacks. Adimali is a town famous for spices shops and people from settlements nearby come down to the town for selling their commodities. From Adimali it is only 30 km to Munnar but it took more than 90 minutes to reach Munnar because of the continuous flow of people coming back after visiting Munnar. The view of the hills and valleys, the mist and the occasional sight of streams flowing down from the hill top are precious.

On reaching Chithirapuram, we can see sign boards of several resorts, hotels and home stays. We drove to Munnar town which was not very crowded as expected and then headed to Chinnakanal where the Mountain Club Resort is but in between we took some time to drive through the Gap Road which is one of the most adventurous and exciting road to drive. Narrow road with rock mount on one side and steep valley on the other side we have to drive very carefully. Several resorts like Club Mahindra, Siena Village Lake Zone, etc are located in Chinnakanal and we drove past to the end where the Mountain Club Resort is. Driving and enjoying the nature is bit dangerous but the thrill is beyond description.

We always change the resorts or hotels when we stay in Munnar because each one will give diverse ambiance. We have stayed in most of the good resorts located in Chinnakanal, Munnar but I have to say that "Mountain Club" gave us an astounding feel. Right from the entrance we could feel the...more »
