    Munnar Tourism

    The name Munnar originates from the Malayalam words ‘Munnu’ (three) and ‘Aaru’(river) owing to the strategic location of this town at the junction of the three rivers, Muthirappuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly. Munnar is essentially a tea town, with tea estates consuming most of the land available in Munnar, and also a hill station known for its scenic beauty. The green dew covered shimmering tea estates, the winding roads, picture perfect peaceful towns, trekking and holiday facilities make Munnar quite a famous tourist destination among travelers who visit India.

    Travelers who visit Munnar find themselves engrossed in learning about tea, taking long strolls around tea plantations, trekking, parasailing, camping outdoors, hot air ballooning, and going on wild life safaris in the protected areas. Munnar is well known to be the protected homes of some threatened and endemic species such as the Nilgiri Thar, Sambar, Elephants, Grizzled Giant Squirrel, and the Strobilanthes kunthiana, also known as ‘Neela Kurunji’, which has led to the naming of the Nilgiri hills as they were found abundantly in the Nilgiri hills at one point of time. The beauty of this flower is that it blooms only once every 12 to 16 years and the flower is of purple color. The average temperature in Munnar ranges from about 10 degrees to about 25 degrees in the summer. Due to the pleasant climate Munnar provides, many tourists come to Munnar seeking peace, quiet and relaxation as Munnar knows how to provide best.

    One of the bonuses of staying at a Munnar hotel is the fact that lodging facilities include choices between tree houses; luxury tents etc. available at most hotels, and the fact that an air conditioner is totally unnecessary, cutting down on lodging expenses allowing the tourist to indulge more in luxury and elegance. Visiting tea gardens and tea factories to learn about the process from which a freshly hand-picked tea leaf is processed to the tea we drink, visiting the Mattupetty lake and dam which provides excellent view and an excellent picnic spot, and visiting the specialized dairy farm called Swiss Livestock Project Farm, which holds over a 100 different breeds of high yielding cattle established in 1961 are some of the few attractions that tourist indulge themselves into during their stay in Munnar.
