”Forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and winds long to play with your hair.”

The south-west territory of India, Kerala is one of the significant tourist destinations in the nation with its shimmering coast, serpentine backwaters, coconut woods influencing toward the south-west wind, and the Western Ghats canvassed in fragrant zest and tea estate. There is no lack of spots to see in Kerala and Munnar is one such spot. Situated at around 5,200 ft over the ocean level, Munnar is a delightful hill station in the area of Idukki, Kerala. once the summer resort for the British, Munnar is known for its wonderful atmosphere and flawless excellence. The moving slopes canvassed in fog crossed by the winding street, the dark emerald green shaded ranch and a couple of solitary houses in the middle of it will in a flash make you experience passionate feelings for this spot.

HISTORY:

The Munnar history started in the ancient, so demonstrate the relics found around the area point of Stone Age civilization. A British legal counselor and tea grower rented near 600 sq. km of land around Munnar, which was then secured with thick wilderness, from the Poonjar boss, a subordinate of the Maharaja of Travancore. He at that point cleared the wilderness for Tea estates. At that point in 1983, James Finlay Group sold its residual shareholdings and the organization got known as Tata Tea Ltd., the biggest incorporated tea organization on the planet. This land was later known as Kanan Devan (Kannan Thevar) Concession Land. Later in 1895, Messrs Finlay Muir and Company purchased Munro’s property and in 1976 Tata-Finlay Ltd. bought it.

THE CHARM:

Unending expanse of tea plantations ­ pristine valleys and mountains­ exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests ­ aroma of spice scented cool air ­ yes! This beautiful destination has all these and more. It’s the place you would love to visit; ­ it’s the place you would wish never to leave. Munnar is such a beautiful place in Kerala, which cannot be portrayed in a single canvas. Everything and anything here will make us excited. The hills, the mist, the valleys, the streams, the waterfalls, tea plantations, rare flora, and fauna.

MAGICAL JOURNEY:

Arranged on the banks of three streams Madupetti, Nallathanni, and Periavaru, Munnar is likewise honored with natural view-focuses separated from the tea-ranches. Munnar is partitioned into Old Munnar, where the traveler data office is, and Munnar, where the bus stop and most guest houses are found. The Eravikulam National Park, Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, and tea manors are its significant attractions. Munnar itself is a scruffy, traffic-clogged administration hub, not unlike a North Indian hill station, but wander just a few kilometers out and you’ll be engulfed in a sea of a thousand shades of green.
