Where Heaven Meets Earth
Munnar, meaning “three rivers”, is located at the confluence of three mountain streams videlicet Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. Located at an altitude of 1600 meters above the sea level, Munnar offers an ideal escapade from the heat and buzz of urban life into the tranquil laps of nature. The mist covered rolling hills, exotic plantations, colonial remnants, panoramic views, and pristine wilderness - all add to the exquisite beauty of this hill station. Munnar also boasts of the highest peak in South India, Anamudi with an altitude of 2695 meters above the sea level.
This idyllic, picture postcard hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Raj. The town still proudly retains its old-world colonial charms in much the same way. The exotic flora and fauna found in the region further accentuates the beauty. Munnar cordially welcomes a visitor by rolling out a plush green velvet carpet of verdant valleys laced with plantations. This fairytale town will side sweep you with its dazzling kaleidoscopic visions of nature.
The hill station of Munnar is located on the Western Ghat mountain range in Idukki district, Central Kerala. Idukki is a landlocked district bordering with the districts of Ernakulam, Kottayam and Thrissur and the Western Ghats mountain range in the east.
Munnar enjoys a temperate climate akin to that of an English summer. Summer temperatures hover between 15° C to 30° C and winter temperatures in the 0° C- 10° C range.
