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

    Munnar hills

    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.
