About Munnar, India

Munnar, a charming hill station in Kerala, India's Idukki district, lies tucked away in the lush creases of the Western Ghats. Munnar, which is famous for its rolling tea plantations, mist-covered hills, and tranquil atmosphere, is located about 1,600 metres (5,200 feet) above sea level. This charming village has long been a favourite getaway location for nature lovers and vacationers looking for a break from the busy city life.

Historically created in the late 19th century by British planters, Munnar's topography was changed into an expansive tea garden area that is now a popular tourist destination. Munnar, which means "three rivers," is the name of the region. The town is situated at the meeting point of the Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni, and Kundala rivers, which contribute to the area's visual appeal.
