It Was an Awesome Trip To Munnar , Pros: Traveling On Month Of July (monsoon Season) Make The Place More Special . The Place Where The Camping Held Has Given Stunning Panoramic View Of The Western Ghats and the Valley of Theni. On Way To Campsite You Can Also have A Chance To Encounter With Wild Animals Which is also an Thrilling Experince. The Dinner and Breakfast Which Provided By the Tour Company Was Quiet Decent. 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 :)

"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.

Arun is really a gem of a person. He is very informative, really kind and soft spoken. He shared knowledge about tea plantation and Munnar history too. Arun is also a good photographer and he captures amazing shots. The view is lovely as fog passes by. Also the trek is amazing given the distance and route. Arun also managed to provide a light snack and lunch on our way and we spent a fantastic time. The seven hills Lakshmi trek is really beautiful way to look at beauty of Munnar. Highly recommended.
The trip to Kerala was so good, I went to Kerala with my friends and we enjoyed a lot there. We explored 2 beautiful cities of Kerala- Kochi, and Munnar. We went to so many places and the waterfalls in Munnar was beautiful and mesmerizing. The stays were comfortable and the food was also tasty. The cab facility was also good.
The trip to Munnar was an amazing experience we had a lot of fun during the trip. The city is so beautiful and calm. The waterfalls and tea, coffee plantations make it more charming. It was fun bathing in waterfalls and visiting the Eravikulam National Park, We even enjoyed playing and feeding the elephants. It was a wonderful trip!!!
