Kerala Diaries - Munnar & Kochi

Munnar is a beautiful hillstation to enjoy the summer vacation.We booked a tour package to Munnar and Kochi. We started from Chennai to Munnar by bus. It took 11 -12 Hrs to reach our destination.

We stayed at a beautiful cottage named 'Glenmore Resort' which is covered with dense trees and plants.

We started at 12 noon to visit Mattupetty Dam. On the way we stopped our vehicle to see the beautiful view of Munnar

One of the main attractions in Munnar is Mattupetty Dam. The lake and Dam are ideal spots for Picnic.

The next day, the climate was too good and it was cloudy, we started to Eravaikulam National Park. This park is administered by Kerala Department of Forest & Wildlife. Private vehicles are prohibited, so everyone has to go by the government vehicles. We waited in the queue for 2 Hrs for our turn to come. Indeed the wait was fruitful and we started trekking around to have the wonderful view of the park.

Suddenly, it started drizzling and the place was fully covered with Mist and fog as usual.

Our day was well spent with the scenic beauty of Eravikulam. After that we visited the famous Kanan Devan tea museumThey played a small video of Munnar history and how tea plantations originated. After that they showed how tea powder is prepared from the leaves extracted.

The last day we traveled from Munnar to Kochi. It took 2 Hrs and we visited one the largest mall in India, LuLu Mall. The mall infrastructure and the interior decoration was speechless. The last hop of our trip was Kochi harbour
