Munnar ResortsSearch Hotel By Name:
Munnar is an idyllic tourist destination. Snuggled in the Anamalai ranges and perched at an altitude of about 1600 meters, it is a charmingly elegant hill resort that has almost been tailor made for the lovers of mountains. Literally meaning three rivers, Munnar is indeed located at the convergence of three mountain springs of Madrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala.
Encasing everything that a lover of nature would wish to enjoy in a hill station, Munnar excels in its pristine hinterland, mist clad hills, numerous lakes, reservoirs, lush green forests and sprawling tea estates. Pepper, rubber and cardamom plantations lend a distinct aroma to the cool and bracing climate of the hill resort.
Munnar is also close to Anamudi(2695 meters), the highest peak in South India. This makes it an important getaway to the world of trekking, rock climbing and numerous other adventure sports. Being almost untouched and unaltered from its indigenous charm, Munnar is also opulent in rare species of flora and fauna.
Rosewood, red sandalwood, teak and jungle jack are some of the most prominent trees of the region. Often referred to as “Kashmir of the Southern India”, Munnar is even a Paradise to the ornithologists. Therefore, a rare amalgamation of craggy cliffs, bubbling brooks, rolling hills, extensive tea estates, streams and valleys, makes Munnar the perfect holiday destination where nature flaunts its variegated bounty.
