Munnar is referred to as a “hill station.” To get there we climbed in elevation, and left the heat and humidity of the backwaters behind. It’s a small town, surrounded on all sides by tea plantations. For miles as you approach Munnar, and miles after you leave, all you can see in every direction is tea. We spent two nights there, but definitely could have spent more. On our only full day there, we spent the morning walking through tea plantations and ended up at a pretty waterfall. The smell of tea wafts throughout the whole area. In the afternoon we rented bikes and biked down a long and windy road through more and more tea. The amazing thing about the tea trees is how they are able to grow at extreme angles and on steep hills. The average tea tree produces harvest for 100 years. The food in Munnar was unbelievable and it was so much fun to be among one of our favorite things…delicious tea!!
