Tea tourism in Munnar, in Kerala state

At the southwestern corner of the country, in Kerala state, this charming town of 32,000 is a hill station (established during the British Raj as an getaway from the summer heat of the lowlands and still popular as a tourist destination today), located some 1,600 metres (5,200 feet) above sea level in the Western Ghats mountain range. And the local landscape includes lush, green, enticing views of miles upon miles of numerous tea plantations dating back to the 1880s, which furthermore are among the few in India which offer tea tourism (as well as accommodations) on a medium-range budget. Munnar is also home to various tea-themed hotels/resorts as well as an interesting Tea Museum on one of the estates.


It's one of 6 Top Tea Tourism Destinations in India from Tripatini member Linda Wilson.
