To steal the words of our travel bible, the Lonely Planet, we could “hear the collective sigh” as we entered the mountain air of Munnar. We decided to round the year off the best way we could and set off on a 7 hour hike in the hills of Munnar. The views were absolutely breathtaking as you can see from the pictures below. We hiked around the many tea plantations of the region and loved to see the scenery. But what topped it off is that we could actually hear birds chirping versus cars incessantly honking.
This is the group we hiked with. A highlight of our trip has been to meet people from everywhere. Here we are with a couple from Sweden and a couple from Scotland.
Munnar is surrounded by tea plantations.
Even the cows drink tea here…ok not true, but they love the leaves.
Happy New Year!!!
