|Munnar Moonnar Tea plantation of kerala
Munnar is situated at the confluence
of three mountains streams - Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala.
1600m from sea level , this hill station was the summer resort of
the British Government in South India. Sprawling tea plantations,
picture-book towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this
a popular hill station.
Among the exotic flora found in the forests and the grasslands
here is Neelakurunji. This flower which bathes the hills in blue
once every twelve years , will bloom next in 2006 AD. Munnar
also has the highest peak in South India, Anamudi , which towers
over 2695m. Anamudi is an ideal spot for trekking.
