There is some magic in the hills of Munnar, that caught our attention, trull the place is the best holiday destination for all. When we were entering Munnar we saw endless gardens of coffee and it was so nice to stare at those feilds.... Wao Munnar hills has very rich vegetation area as well. We were trekking on the moderate trails and camping on flat grounds.. everything just commendable.
