Munnar Experience: Munnar is a place fully carpeted with tea gardens in a unique style, with wonderful climate, cool and a peaceful place. Not at all polluted, easily accessible, just four and half hours drive from Cochin airport, with beautiful landscaping, waterfalls & wild life makes it really beautiful. The highest tea plantations at Kolukkumulai Tea Estae is at a 8000 ft, we had a bumpy jeep ride but the view is really beautiful and exotic, its a MUST SEE this Organic Tea Factory, 75 years old..
I really loved Munnar and would love to visit it again.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Good Seafood is available here, Veg and non- veg both are available in the city restauarants, we liked their local snacks made in coconut oil Acchappam and banana wafers. Even home made chocolates are available here.Spices
Natural face packs, oils, aloevera gel and soaps are worth shopping. Tea gardens, flower gardens, kolukkumalai tea estate, Mattupatty dam, Rajamalai National park and Chinnar wild life Sanctuary are a must visit not to be missed out.
