Munnar in one word - tea.
Emerald green carpets of tea plantations on mild slopes of the Western Ghats punctuated by silver Oak trees lie tranquilly under dazzling blue skies. Being in Munnar is as much feeling pleased and relaxed as looking at the world after a delicious, satisfying meal.
Lying at a mild elevation, Munnar is scenic, pleasant and chilled out. On the backpacker-must-visit list.
