MUNNAR INDIA IS STUNNING!!! 🇮🇳❤️ Kerala Hill Station Grand Tour

Hi guys!

We are making a move from our Munnar Mountain Resort to the town of Munnar, India.

Even though it was only a short drive to our next hotel, getting all our luggage in the Jeep was quite the challenge. Eventually, we made everything fit.

Silvertips in Munnar, India - Unique Bollywood-Themed Hotel

We checked into the Silvertips Hotel in Munnar. And WOW, what a unique property. Silvertips is a Bollywood-themed hotel inspired and dedicated to the massive Indian movie industry. 

Once we got settled into our cozy rooms, we went down to the Silvertips restaurant for another amazing Indian feast. We have to admit, it’s tough to say what Indian food we liked best. Every time we switched locations or tried a new recipe, it instantly became our favorite! 

Hands-on Tea-Making Experience at Tea Museum in Munnar, India

Munnar is famous for its infinite rolling hills dotted with tea plantations. They even have an entire museum dedicated to tea, where we learned so much about the benefits and history of this healing plant and had the chance to participate in the production process.

Did you know that green, black and white tea all came from the same tea tree? The secret lies in the way it’s processed and ground. We also learned that you should never have green tea on an empty stomach! Cool right?

Bustling Munnar Open Market and Pink Police Cars!

Leaving the museum, we headed for Munnar’s open market. To call it busy would be an understatement. But one thing was particularly interesting to see - a pink police car. Yes, it's a female-only police patrol that enhances the safety of women and children in public places.

Another thing we loved about Munnar, and India in general, was the fact that they are truly trying to cut down on the use of non-recyclable plastics and thus fight extreme pollution, which has been one of the country’s biggest problems. Great job, India!

Grand Tour of Munnar, India: Botanical Gardens & Chocolate Factory

In the morning, we had another finger-licking, Indian-style breakfast and got ready for our Grand Tour of Munnar. 

Our first stop for the day was the Botanical Gardens of Munnar. I can easily say these were one of the most unique gardens we’ve ever been to. You never know what to expect in India!

Then we stopped at their small chocolate factory and bought some delicious snacks. 

Grand Tour of Munnar Continues: Mattupetty Dam, Elephant Crossing & Echo Point

Our next destination was the Mattupetty Dam in Munnar. While it was fun to see a tourist spot in Munnar, it was absolutely dangerous to cross the bridge together with all those cars and trucks.

Once again, in India, you can go from quiet, pristine views to crazy moments of chaos within seconds, which only adds to the charm of this extraordinary country.

Leaving Mattupetty Dam, we headed to the place known as Echo Point, but before we reached this location, we were lucky enough to spot a herd of elephants in the wild. Magnificent creatures!

Echo Point is a popular tourist spot nestled among the breathtaking Nilgiri Hills. People often come here for picnics, hiking, bird-watching, boating on the lake, and taking amazing photographs, which we absolutely did. 

Finishing the Munnar Grand Tour: Roadside Lunch and Tea Plantations

After we did our fair share of “echoing,” we were ready for the last stop of the day, but traffic had other plans. The waiting made us hungry, so we hopped out of the car and found a nice place that served amazing Indian food on the side of the road. 

We finished the tour with a hot cup of chai tea, walking through the awe-inspiring tea plantations and enjoying the views of the neighboring Tamil Nadu state.

Thanks for watching, guys! Don’t forget to follow and join our channel to be able to see where the roads of India take us next!
