Set between the pristine valleys and mountains of the Western Ghats, Munnar welcomes one with an array of aromas from an expanse of tea and spice plantations. Thekkady on the other hand, brings visuals of a placid lake with half-submerged trees jutting out. Enveloping wildlife parks and shoal forests, these twin-towns are home to a wide range of flora and fauna as well. All this makes Munnar one of the most sought after destinations by families and nature lovers.
The options for accommodation is a long list and you can choose from home stays, tents, bungalows, camps, hotels and resorts, which cater to different visitors-nature enthusiasts, trekkers, couples and others. Kerala is also a gourmand's paradise with an elaborate menu for vegetarians, non-vegetarians. Seafood delicacies are a standout. The sinfully pleasant climate is another major contributing factor as to why it's a perfect getaway.
