about munnar

Munnar is not just Kerala’s most sought-after hill resort, it is also the centre of the state’s tea growing district, aptly known as the High Range. In Tamil, moon aar literally means ‘three rivers’, a reference to the streams around whose confluence the town grew. The Nallthanni and Kundale streams flow into the Muthirapuzha River here. Tea is Munnar’s claim to fame. More than 12,000 hectares of lush, manicured tea fields form an irresistible canvas against which honeymooners pose. Stately eucalyptus plantations, which fuel the many tea factories in the vicinity, sway gently in the wind, their fragrance wafting over Munnar. And shola trees hug the mist-shrouded hillsides, sheltering many endangered species of wildlife. For the more adventurous, there’s the challenge of climbing the 8,841 ft Anaimudi, the highest peak in India south of the Himalaya, which towers majestically over the town.

Munnar is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. The hill station in God's own country is known for its serenity and remarkable beauty. Set amidst thriving green tea plantations, exotic wildlife and clear trout streams, Munnar is a delight for adventure seekers. Hill View Park, Sita Devi Lake and Mattupetti Dam are some the major tourist attractions. Situated amidst forested hills and jungles, Atukkad Waterfall is another major attraction. The lush greenery surrounding the cascading waters creates a site to behold. A blue flower known as ‘Strobilanthus’ blooms once in two years and is only found in this region.  

Munnar is in a valley hemmed in by hills. Many of its attractions are to be found on its outskirts, within a radius of 30 km from the town. All these places are part of the Munnar experience, and are linked to it by local bus, taxis and autos along a network of excellent roads. Contact DTPC for information and bookings, trekking, sightseeing, tickets for boating at Mattupetty Dam and cycles on hire.
