Munnar - In and Around

A beautiful town located on the Kanna Devan hills of the Nilgiri Mountain Ranges. An elevation of 13oo meters makes it a perfect spot to be called a Hill Station.Weather is pleasant throughout the year, during winters it feels cold in the mornings and the evenings. This town has a rich history of Tea plantations. There are a plenty of attractions in and around Munnar.

Nag Tibba – An Easy Two Days Trek
