Memorable Moments And FunFilled Trip Is Guarantee . Cons : Food are Really Expensive on Outside Of The Campiste Residency If You Are Planning A Other Activities Than Camping Beware Of The Activities You Pick bcoz In Some Places( Example :Elephant Safari,Etc..) They Charge You More Than It Deserve Since I Had Private Tour I Did Not Have Problem With Restroom Facilities (because Campsite Was Near The Building Of The Tour Company ) I havn't Seen Any Restroom On The Places Of Group Tour Camp So Please Enquire Before The Begging Of Your Camping. --- At Last One Line Decrption --- " Nature Always Wears The Colors Of The Spirits " Live In The Moments In Munnar Have A Good Life :)

Paragliding was a an absolute delightful experience for me. it was my first time and intially it was a little scary but when you start your flight its amazing. also the pilot was really friendly and explaining me everything from important points about the place and his experience of flying. best parts was when he was doing stunts like flying 360 degree. it was a very memorable experience.

My money spent on this trip was totally worth it and i strongly recommend this as a holiday point for you.Especially i liked that ride on the houseboat, which is a typical and very famous tourist attraction in Kerala and you gonna love that too.

"Simply Amazing. If you love adventures , this is a must try. There's Jeep safari, off-roading through the tea estates, Fog covering the way when you reach the top, Mesmerizing view, Quechua Tents, Tasty food, Campfire, 2 km trek to the top of the mountain and last but definitely not the least breathtaking sunrise and feel of heaven on the top. The team organizing this is super helpful and super friendly. Had some difficulties contacting the vendor in the beginning but once we met things went super smooth and the team at the top (Oscar and team) definitely deserves an applause.\nP.S.: Don't miss the Sunrise from the top of the mountain for which one has to trek for 2KMS.

We recently went on a trip to Kerala and it was a wonderful trip. The places included in the trip are so beautiful and alluring, From scenic waterfalls in Munnar to lush green tea estates, beautiful beaches of Kumarakom, we even tried some watersports there. Boat cruise in river and backwaters in Alleppy was one of the top high lights of the tour. We really enjoyed four hours cruise on the boat. All staff on the boat were friendly. Lunch served was tasty and sumptuous. Stay was short but enjoyable. We very much enjoyed our touring holiday in Kerala.

The food in Kerala was so tasty, the driver was polite, punctual and gave us great insight about Kerala and its lifestyle. We had a great time in the houseboat, the authentic food at the boat was yummy. We had fun exploring the tea museums and other places in Munnar.
