    Ajit's 3 days trip to Munnar

    As a feedback....I would like to express that tour was nicely organised. All amenities were as per commitments.However I have got two suggestions 1. Tour vehicle driver shall be well informed about inclusions of diesel prices etc as driver was asking me to pay diesel money. 2. Driver and vehicle details shall be shared well in advance ...details was shared a bit late this time. Thanks for very good service extended.

    Deepak's 6 days trip to Munnar

    Overall the trip was good. The Driver and cab service was excellent. But Cochi hotel room was very small. Houseboat was also not as per standards. Agent has booked Whiterose houseboat. But the boat provided to us was nowhere similar ot one givenon their website. Other than that experience was great.

    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Home to extensive plantations of both tea and coffee, both the beverages and their local preparations are specialities of Munnar. Being a hill station, the weather is also something that makes Munnar quite special. Even in the summer months, Munnar's average high temperature is 26-28 degrees celsius. The Anamudi Peak which is near Munnar is also worth mentioning as it is the tallest peak in South India. The Eravikulam National Park is also home to the Nilgiri Tahir.

    Paddle Boating, speed boat ride, and horse riding are some of the activities you can do at Mattupetty Lake in Munnar. In the vicinity of the dam, tourists can visit the beautiful tea gardens that are a treat for nature lovers.

     

    There are rooms available from Rs.800 a night to Rs. 15,000 a night. Restaurants are plenty, mostly connected to hotels and serve various cuisines for roughly Rs. 200-300 per person for a meal. There are also cars available on rent for transport and cost anything between Rs. 600-2500 for half a day or the full day. At the very least, a day in Munnar would cost you Rs.1000-1500.

    As a lot of the attractions in Munnar are a little far from the main town, there is no specific ideal area to stay in Munnar. It is better to check according to the hotel that you are planning to stay in and get an idea of it's quality.

    Munnar being a hill station, there is no bad time to visit really. Every season has it's own charm in the city. Though most people go in winter for trekking or in the summer to escape the heat, monsoon in Munnar is incredible as well. Heavy rains and lush greenery everywhere make it a beautiful experience. Monsoon is also the time when Munnar is the least crowded

    Munnar has again started receiving tourist footfall. Many hotels are accepting bookings. Moreover, common tourist roots are open for tourist activities.
