Munnar is a serene hill station in Kerala, once it was known as the High Range of Travancore. It is a scruffy, traffic-clogged administration hub, not unlike a North Indian hill station, just a few kilometers out and one will be engulfed in a sea of a thousand shades of green. Above the clouds watching veils of mist clinging to mountaintops, the low Western Ghats scenery is magnificent.
... Munnar is flourished as a tea-producing area from 1880 onwards. Today Munnar is the commercial center of some of the world’s highest tea-growing estates, most operated by corporate giant Tata. The rolling hills around this beautiful hill station Munnar is South India's largest tea-growing region, which is carpeted in emerald-green tea plantations, clipped, contoured, and sculpted like ornamental hedges.
Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kundala rise as three mountain streams merge in Munnar, it is 1,600 m above sea level, and this hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India. Sprawling picturesque towns, winding lanes, tea plantations, and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji, this flower which bathes the hills in blue, blooms once in every twelve years. Anamudi in Munnar is the highest peak in South India, it towers over 2,695 m. Anamudi is an ideal spot for trekking.
