Monsoons are here and so are the misty dawns, the cozy sleeps and the lazy mornings. A cup of hot coffee on a balcony overlooking a scenic landscape drenched in the monsoon rain – what better way to rekindle your romance and refresh your inner peace. If you are tired of your daily routine and your mundane work, pack your bags and rush to Kerala. With the monsoons setting in, the small state in south India is now truly God’s own country with lush greenery and captivating monsoon sights.
If you are a couple looking for a perfect honeymoon destination or just a small holiday to renew your romance, then Munnar is the place to be. The small hill station in Kerala offers untouched natural beauty and a peaceful private abode for couples. There are several resorts and holiday inns that provide accommodation for couples in exotic isolated locations – away from the hustle bustle of a city, away from the rush of daily life and away from stress and strain.
Munnar is situated at the peaks of the Western Ghats and is abundantly blessed by nature. The peaks are surrounded with tea plantations and other wildlife. Unlike other hill stations in India, it is also easily accessible from the major cities of Kerala, especially Cochin since it is situated in the adjacent district, Idukki. Just a small road trip to the town and there you are – away from the rush of the city and in the arms of the nature. Along with the endless stretches of tea plantations, Munnar is also abode to a plethora of flora and fauna.
Set at an altitude of 6000ft, the small town on Munnar used to be the summer destination of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days. However, the city now attracts tourists at all times of the year. Be it summer or monsoon, the city has an amazing charm, serenity and tranquility that make it easy for a person to fall in love with the place difficult to leave.
However, if you are looking for adventure and an opportunity to enjoy the monsoons, then take a trip across the state. The backwaters, rivers, ponds and waterfalls are filled with water at this point of the year and look extremely gorgeous. You can go for a ride on a houseboat in Allepey or take a trip to the Athirappilly waterfalls to enjoy the captivating beauty of the monsoons.
