The Beauty Of Munnar From My Eyes

Whenever it comes to the best hill stations in South India , Munnar is one of the popular most hill stations. Munnar is situated on the Western Ghats in Kerala. In Munnar you will enjoy a soothing climate due to its height (more than 2000 meters from the mean sea level). Everywhere you will see greenery...tall trees ,  tea gardens....and the "neelakurinj" , a blue flower that blooms every 12 years. We had been in Munnar in the month of February. So it was a little hot. A perfect destination for couples .... that is equipped with lots of hotels....eateries and travel agencies to make your stay memorable.

Here are few of the beautiful memories I captured through my lens.

A view of the narrow road that leads you to Munnar.....believe looks beautiful...but some times it gets scary....when two vehicles come head on and one has to go back to the wide turning point so that the other one can go ahead.

While you are on your way ....keep your eyes open for such scenic beauty. On one side you see huge rocks and on the other side.... deep valley.

The famous Mattupetti Dam around 10 kms away from Munnar. It is a picnic spot. You can go for boating or horse riding here.

The Kundala lake. Unlike the other points, here you will not find lots of people. Here also you can go for boating , however , be there before 4:00 p.m. because the boating closes up at 4:30 p.m.

The beautiful sunset in the land of God. During the evening you will feel a little cold as the temperature drops suddenly.

It is taken on the way to the top station. Top station gives you a beautiful view of the Western Ghat  specially in the evening. And if you feel hungry after the all day tour , go to the restaurant at the Top station and indulge in hot pakodas and tea. I am sure no other food can beat this combination at that time.

The famous photo point , this particular picture can be easily found in many calenders.

A small waterfalls on the way to Alleppey from Munnar. You will find few such beautiful falls in and around Munnar and they look beautiful during the monsoon. 
You can read about the house boat trip at Alleppey here Valentine' s Day in Houseboat @ Alleppey .
