The route to Munnar from Kochi is filled with twists and turns and is a single lane highway. Do not venture to drive on your own unless you have experience doing so. Taking an experienced driver is better.

There are enough points on the way where one can stop and take in the vistas, but stopping is difficult as the roads are narrow and stopping means blocking the way.

There are restaurants till one starts the climb. Once the climb to the top starts there are not many options to eat.

We stayed at the Hotel Hill View, Munnar from 12th of May to 15th of May 2016. The rooms are clean. The WiFi provided is good, except that we had to go to the person at the reception and ask him to connect our mobiles to the WiFi. For some reason they did not disclose the password.

Enjoyed driving a lot with gorgeous beauty of Munnar, using our own cars makes our trip more comfortable and it will give you a nice experience, we went to Lakkam waterfalls (Loved this place). At summer this waterfall doesn't have too much water and hence pulls less crowd. But that is advantage for peace lovers. One can take a bath as well. Bathroom and locker facilities are available. In monsoon the water level increases and it's not safe for bath anymore. Very good place for nature lovers and photographers too and also for horse riding, Rose garden and etc

The best driver and a new Innova car, enroute we enjoyed watching Kerala forest trees, botanical gardens, spicy trees and so on, we purchased spicy food and other ayurvedic medicines, the overall trip is excellent. This is a ghat road, the vehicle driver is having GPS. Waterfalls is the best sight seeing on the way to Munnar. The aruvi resort that we booked the hotel, the resort was fine. We enjoyed different types of trees.

We arrived at Cochin airport by 0320 Pm and later drive towards Munnar, roads conditions are very good from Cochin airport to Munnar and the journey was awesome due to little rain while driving through green mountains.

We stopped in 02-03 points and 01 waterfall on the way. The journey was approx 05 hrs from Cochin to Munnar and as it was December month the traffic was bit high.

But it was round all a excellent and relaxed journey and shall love to be there again.
