After a wonderful wedding, it was our turn to spend some quality time with each other. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, we did not have a lot of time in our hands.

We began searching for good Munnar honeymoon tour packages and luckily for us, we came across the TravelTriangle page, which offered some great deals.

Day 1: Hello to the city of the Nilgiris: Munnar
We left from Bangalore in a sleeper coach bus at night and reached Kochi early morning, where we were greeted by our driver, a lovely fellow, who suggested that we immediately leave for Munnar honeymoon places. On our way, in the outskirts of Kochi, we visited the Chottanikara devi temple, a temple dedicated to goddess Laxmi. It’s a very peaceful place and chants of the mantras soothed our senses.
From there, it took us some hours and we finally reached Munnar by late afternoon. Upon reaching, we checked into our hotel Deshadan mountain resort, the highest resort in Kerala. It is located in the outskirts of Munnar and is at such a location that one cannot miss it.

The hotel is beautiful in every sense of the word. The staff is also very warm and friendly.From our welcome with fresh watermelon juice, to the rooms, everything was perfect. There is an indoor games station where one pass time. The food is also very nicely prepared.
Our stay in the hotel was one of the best parts of our honeymoon trip to Munnar.
In the evening, we decided to explore the local markets and streets. We had dinner at this great restaurant called ‘The Rapsy restaurant’, serving authentic Kerala cuisine. One must try the kozhi porichathu and nana’s green tea here. Its simply awesome.

Day 2: Sightseeing in Munnar
We had an early morning sumptuous breakfast in our resort and started off for sightseeing tour of Munnar honeymoon places. We first visited the top station, located about 32 kms from Munnar. it offers mesmerising views of the Nilgiris. This is quite in contrast to the views of the vast tea plantations, which had led up to top station. We stayed there for sometime and clicked really nice pictures.
Location of Top Station: Munnar
Best time to go: April to May
On coming down, we visited the Mattupetty dam and the echo point. They offer some scintillating views of the valley and one can easily spend hours here. Mattupetty Dam Munnar entry fee is mere INR 10 and for Echo Point it is free. One shouldn’t miss visiting both these places.
Later we visited the tea museum, situated in Nallathanni Estate. It is a fascinating place and one gets an insight into process of tea leaf rolling. After that, we decided to have dosas and tea in Sri Venkateswara restaurant, one of the oldest restaurant in the city. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed it. Before going back to our hotel, we stopped for shopping for some sarees and Kerala spices.
Day 3: Of dams and tea plantations
We had an early morning breakfast post which we visited the Hydel park, a well maintained park but we didn’t spend much time there. Then, we visited the Anairankal dam. The road drive from the Hydel park to the Anairankal dam was spectacular, we were literally compelled to stop every 5 minutes and click pictures of the scenery. Driving amidst the vast tea plantation filled our hearts with happiness. Upon reaching, we stayed there for some time, admiring the views of the fast-paced waterfall over the grid. It was another highlight of our trip and one of the best days of our Munnar honeymoon. The dams here offer beautiful views and so does the plantations. The scenery is breathtaking!
We were back to city by 4pm and boarded the sleeper coach back to Kochi, our hearts filled with memories of our honeymoon trip to the beautiful Munnar.
I wish we had more time to stay in Munnar. It is a perfect place for honeymoon and offers one a chance to experience the best of what mother nature offers with his better half. I thank TravelTriangle for helping me plan this trip so perfectly and taking care of all the arrangements in such a short notice. Cheers to them!
