South India  >> Kerala  >>  Munnar

Munnar, a picturesque hill station in the state of Kerala, is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams -Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala.

Located at I 600 m above sea level, this was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in south India. Sprawling tea plantations, picture-book towns, winding lanes, trekking and holiday facilities make Munnar a unique destination.

Anayirangal, 22 km from Munnar, is a lush green carpet of tea plants. A trip on the splendid

reservoir is an unforgettable experience. The Anayirangal Dam is surrounded by Tata Tea plantations and evergreen forests. An ideal picnic spot.

Top Station, 32 km from Munnar, is situated at an altitude of I 700 m above sea level. This is the highest point on the Munnar-Kodaikanal road. The rare Neelakurunji (Strobilanthus) belongs to this region. Top Station also offers a panoramic view of neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu.
