Sitting at the point where three mountain rivers meet, the hill station of Munnar has become known as a tea-growing center in the south of the country.
On the 20th (Wed), see the interesting displays at Tea Museum, admire the natural beauty at Rose Gardens, then delve into the lush surroundings at Photo Point, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Tea Gardens. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the engineering at Mattupetty Dam and then get great views at Munnar Hill Station.
