At an elevation of 5,026 feet above sea level, Munnar is a mountain town on the Western Ghats of India. Located in the southern state of Kerala, Munnar is a destination for those that wish to unwind within a small-town setting.
The primary attractions of Munnar are its forested mountains dotted with tea estates, hiking, a bird sanctuary and national park. If you love to trek, bring your trekking poles or hiking staff.
It’s a relaxing three-hour drive to Munnar from the nearest airport, Kochi. Temperatures will vary between Kochi, a port city, and Munnar, a mountain town. Check for these changes before you embark upon your trip. There are several places to stay in Munnar, both within the town and its outskirts. High-end accommodations costs between $200-$500 per night. I recommend that you confirm your lodging ahead of time. This will also allow you to book a car through the hotel or resort and have it waiting for you when you arrive at the airport.
