Escape to Munnar. India

My last leg of this trip was to Munnar, India and this is just a weekend road trip with my new friends.

Munnar rises as three mountain streams merge - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. 1,600 m above sea level, this hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India. Sprawling tea plantations, picturesque towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji. This flower which bathes the hills in blue once in every twelve years, will bloom next in 2018. Munnar also has the highest peak in South India, Anamudi, which towers over 2,695 m. Anamudi is an ideal spot for trekking.

The road trip to Munnar started off with watching the sunset at one of the mountain tops. It was the perfect sunset and it was just too perfect. 

The view from my hotel room was just mind blowing 

In Munnar, I ended up waking up at 3 am and hike downing to the tea fields to see the sunrise. It was a new experience and I would like to thank all the people who joined me on this hiking experience. The view was breathe-taking, it was a moment that cannot be expressed in words but its more visualized. 

In Kerala, the food was amazing but it was the view and the natural scenery that stole my heart.  This was my first trip by myself and it has a special place in my heart. Kerala, itself is a beautiful place and if you ever feel like rediscovering yourself -- I would recommend you to visit Kerala at least once in your life. 

This was the final leg of the trip and this was one of most memorable one. 

With lots of love,
