Munnar Hillstation


Munnar Hillstation is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Kerala. Munnar means 'three rivers', nestles in the Western Ghats at the confluence of three mountain streams (Mudrapuzha, Nallathani, and Kundala). The scent of fresh eucalyptus leaves, Verdant green hills and rolling tea gardens makes Munnar like a paradise. It was the summer resort of the Government official during the British rule in India. Munnar is one of the world's highest tea growing estates. The calmness and mild cold climate throughout the year makes it the favourite tourist place.

Munnar is well known for its vast expanse of neelakurinji, a blue flower which blooms only every twelve years. It bloomed last in December 2006. Munnar also has the highest peak in South India, Anamudi, at 2695 m.
