    Kerala hill stations are known for their fresh and clean air. They offer a mix of adventure and serenity and a number of picturesque scenes of the milky waterways, lakes with the silver sheet of crystal clear water, mighty high rocks, dense and mysterious evergreen forests brimming with diverse and rare flora and fauna. The hill plantations of tea, coffee, rubber and fragrant cardamom stretching up to large areas are a great treat to watch.

    Among all the hill stations, Munnar hill station is very famous. It is engulfed in never ending tea plantations. It is a major hub of tea in Kerala. It is situated 133 km from Cochin and is above 1800 meters above sea level. The Western Ghats have many lakes, reservoirs, forests and tea estates. Munnar means three rivers and has derived its name from the three mountain streams –Muthirappuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. The hill station stands serenely at the confluence of these three rivers. Another attraction in Munnar is the highest peak of South India, Anamudi, which is about 2695m high. Munnar receives a very heavy rainfall during the months of June to September and hence not many people visit this place during that time of the year.

    The other places of interest in Munnar are Mattupetty, Devikulam, Pallivasal, Marayoor, Eravikulam, Chithirpuram, Anayirangal, Attukal, Echo point, Rajamala, Kundala, powerhouse waterfalls and Malankara reservoir. Trips for Munnar holidays are provided by almost every tour operator. One can choose packages according to their convenience. Holidays can be memorable and enjoyable by making a trip to this paradise in Kerala.
