Green Layers of Beauty

The early history of Munnar, Kerala is not perfectly known today. The early inhabitants of the region are members of the Muthuvan tribal community. However, it remained a wild and unexplored landscape till the later half of 19th century when ambitious planters from as far as Europe started plantations here.

If plantation industry ‘discovered’ Munnar in the 19th century, it was re-discovered by the tourism industry in the later half of the 20th century.  The hill station, situated about 1600 m above the sea level, began to be flocked by travelers from around the world. The town, which still retains its colonial charm, has a large number of hotels to greet travelers.  Virgin forests, savannahs, rolling hills, scenic valleys, numerous streams, waterfalls, sprawling tea plantations and winding walkways are attracting thousands every year.
