I've been there with Tours to Kerala, They have arranged me a wonderful Kerala Tour Package which I can never forget. These guys are just awesome, contact them if you want to visit Kerala for your holidays

A sculpted mass of tea plantations like a garden of the gods high up in the mountains of eastern Kerala, this is the state's classic hill station. Lovely for a couple days' stay and walks through the hills, the town itself is a bit shabby. Definitely stay up in one of the tea plantations in the hills.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

We had planned a trip to Munnar. I got impressed with their best deals and I received complete details about the packages they included in my trip. Three days vacation at Munnar makes us inspiring. The beauty and serenity feels awesome. It was a wonderful experience. I would like to visit this place again through eagle wings vacations. We had wonderful experience with them. Now I planned to write my overall experience at my blog.
Munnar gives you a heavenly feeling, with the thick mist surrounding you in the middle of the plantations. The area is blessed with the natural beauty of winding lanes, misty hills, and forests full of exotic plants and wildlife. Most Visiting places in Munnar is Tata Tea Museum, waterfalls, Attukal is one of the most spectacular. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities.

Go to Munnar! Make your way there, any way you can. While I was in India (working for three months), I went there twice. It was worth it.
It's in the southwest state of Kerala, which is famous for its houseboats, backwaters and hill stations—all of which are worth seeing, if you have the time.
Fly in to Kochi/Cochin, and then hire a car (or take a bus, if you're feeling adventurous) to make the 4-5 hour drive up to Munnar, a hill-station (back in colonial times, the Indian and British elite went to Munnar and other hill-stations to escape the scorching summers).
Stay at the Kaivalyam Retreat (www.KaivalyamRetreat.com). It's a yoga retreat that offers the most delicious vegetarian, all-organic cuisine I've ever had. I lived in India for three months and travelled all over, and I can say, without a doubt, that the food here was the absolute best. Fresh, light, healthy and delicious! They also offer yoga in the morning and afternoon (not mandatory but definitely worth a try). Even for a newbie like me, it was a relaxing experience.
And if you do anything else in Munnar, make sure to take a drive around the tea plantations and take a walk through the forest near the yoga retreat. The beautiful green spirals of hills that make up the tea plantations here are just mesmerizing. During monsoon season especially, the leaves are ridiculously green. It's a sight to see.

Get lost in the endless black tea fields. Spend a couple hours with the pickers, drinking tea, and take a hike along the river. An interesting example of religious integration.

What can i say about Munnar ? It is just awesome. Miles and miles of tea gardens which you dont see anywhere in India and the best part was that we decided to stay in Camp Noel the best hotel in Munnar.
We booked our stay in Munnar at Camp Noel through the famous tour operator - Iris Holidays who arranged for our honeymoon package in Kerala ! They had given us a choice of hotels from each place that
we wanted to stay and encouraged us to look into the online eviews and shared with us the past experiences of their guests. I am posting this review here now becauseonline reviews helped us a lot when we made the decision about hotels. We had a good idea about all the hotels that we would be staying in before the trip - Thanks to Iris Holidays.
what can i say about Munnar ? It is just awesome. Miles and miles of tea gardens which you dont see anywhere in India and the best part was that we decided to stay in Camp Noel the best hotel in Munnar. Camp Noel was just awesome other than the bumpy ride we had for 45 minutes through an estate road. Please make sure that you are reaching the resort before 6 PM or else you wont get a feel of the resort and you may wonder at which god saken corner of the world you are in. We reached their at night and were not happy initially. We had reservation for a club room but we wanted to stay in a cottage and Iris Holidays contacted the hotel and upgraded our rooms. Eventhough some reviews mention about the unavailability of television in teh room. But They also provided us with a TV in our room on special request.
A pleasent surprise was waiting for us in the morning.When we woke up in the morning we could not help but just admire the surroundings . The resort was just awesome. A unique mountain experience far from the heat and hustle and bustle.We went for a walk in the surrounding countryside and it was just awesome with verdant hills all around. A fire will be lit in your sitting room in the evening if it is chilly. Staff is what makes Camp Noel what it is if you think how one of the farthest hotels in munnar can become No:1 among all hotels. The service was just awesome and we hope to return their one day with our kids and hopefully the road will be tarred by then making every single thing positive about this mountain resort

Beautiful and lush, though the cold (end of March) was a bit of a shock after the heat at sea level. We stayed in the middle of a tea plantation on a hill, which had a stunning view but less than clean accommodations. Enjoyed the Kathakali performance we watched in town.
