The hill stations of Kerala offer some of the best honeymoon getaways in the world. Foremost among them is Munnar. A Tour Kerala with a tour of some of the hill stations is sure to be an experience in itself. Munnar is a pleasantly cool and refreshing place to visit at most times of the year. Located at the northeastern side of the Idukki district, Munnar is a green delight of gentle rolling hills, quaint little town and villages. The tourist season is from August to May, but is especially lovely during the monsoons, with little streams and rivulets all over the place. It is close to the Eravikulam national park, famous for the Nilgiri Tahr.

A trip to Munnar is a journey through picturesque surroundings, feeling the fresh air complimented with a heady aroma of fresh-fired tea. Munnar with its breathtaking views was transformed into a plantation destination with early efforts undertaken by the Turner brothers in 1877. Today Munnar is a hill with more than 12000 hectares of lush, manicured tea fields, tea factories and evergreen forests hugging the mist-shrouded hills and sheltering several highly endangered species of wildlife.
