 About Munnar:

Lonely Planet compares Munnar "With a Sound-of-Music-in-India backdrop of rolling mountain scenery, craggy peaks, manicured tea estates and crisp mountain air, Munnar really hits the spot after the sticky heat of the lowlands. Once known as the High Range of Travancore, today Munnar is the commercial centre of some of the world’s highest tea-growing estates. But don’t be fooled by the noisy and grubby namesake town of the region; the real attractions lie in the surrounding hills".Munnar is a cosy hill retreat in Kerala which was patronised by the British due to its cool climate and hilly area where tea could be easily cultivated in plantations.Munnar also had a ropeway in those days which the British used to transport tea leaves from the platations to the factory in the olden days.The remains of this ropeway can be seen in Munnar town.
Munnar is abundantly blessed with numerous waterfalls and flowing rivers and streams which is formed by the condensation of mist and clouds on the top of mountains. The sparkling water which condenses on the top of these mountains flows down as waterfalls and flowing streams.One such waterfall can be seen just opposite to Wild Elephant Resort from where the Hotel gets its water requirements
