Munnar Hills Station Tour

If Kerala is God's Own Country Munnar is the Eden. Situated in the misty hills of the Sahyadri it was once a Hill station for the British and now a bustling tourist destination. Known for the green canopy of tea gardens and spice plantations Munnar is perfect holiday destination for both domestic and international tourists.

Munnar is at the confluence of three rivers. In Tamil, the word 'munnu' means "three" and 'aar' means "river". Hence "Munnar" is a shortened version of 'Munnu Aar'. The 3 mountain streams joining together here are Madurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala.

Munnar is a commercial centre with one of the world's best tea estates. There are about 30 tea plantations in and around Munnar. Among these, majority of the plantations are owned by Tata Group's Kannan Devan Tea Estate. A visit to Munnar can witness the nurturing of tea in plantation to the process of manufacturing and packing

Until the early 1990s, Munnar, despite itsenchanting natural beauty and salubrious climate, was a sleepy plantation town. Its tourism potential had been realised only by the Sterling Group and Mahindra Holidays who had set up Time Share Resorts there. However, the promotion of Kerala globally as God's Own Country and the increasing spending capacity of middle class Indians resulted in a virtual explosion of tourism activities in Munnar.

At around the same time, the District Tourism Promotion Council persuaded the Kerala State Electricity Board to permit boating in the reservoirs of the Mattupatty and Gundala dams. Mountain trekking was also promoted.

All these activities soon led to Munnar becoming the choice destination for foreign as well as domestic tourists. The Indo-Swiss Project, the cattlefarm run by the Kerala Livestock Development Board at Mattupatty, 15 kms from Munnar, placed restrictions on vehicles entering their campus due to the persistent vandalism from the tourists. Tata Tea Ltd closed down the private road from Gundala to Top Station through the beautiful Gundala club.

Top Station : Top station, 41 km (1hr) from Munnar is aptly named, as it is home to some of the highest tea plantations in India. It lies on the state border between Kerala and Tamilnadu and commands a panoramic view of rolling green hills.

Echo Point :
On the way to top station, at a spot on the lake embankment, amid some hills, every loud sound is echoed manifold by the surrounding hills- the spot is called Echo point which also offers panoramic views. It is just 15 km from Munnar. An excellent place, especially for young travelers to disembark for a while, yell out - and listen to your voice coming back to you!
