Munnar Tours and Travels

About Munnar

Set amidst dramatic mountain scenery, the hill town of Munnar, in the state of Kerala, sits at an altitude of 1524m and forms the commercial centre of some of the world’s highest tea-growing estates. It’s easy to see why Scottish planters who first developed this hidden valley in the 1900s felt so at home here with the cool weather and eerie mists that envelop the lush mountainsides. Raj-ophiles will enjoy spotting the many British bungalows that cling to the side of verdant valleys alongside the famous High Range Club with its manicured lawns and golf course, and the Stone Church built in 1910 to commemorate the memory of early planters with brass plaques.
