Tea Garden at Munnar- Kerala
The most famous hill station of Kerala with around

irresistible destination that brings alive the dream of seeing
nature's exemplary creations, of breathing in fresh air redolent with
the aroma of tea leaves, seeing animals rare and common and most of
all lazing around doing absolutely nothing.
The location of Munnar itself is inspiring - 5000 feet in the Western Ghats at the confluence of three rivers - Nallathani, Kundale and Muthirapuzha. The three streams later join the Periyar river and finally the Arabian Sea. The name Munnar reflects this very fact, since in Tamil moon aar literally implies three rivers.

However, regular jeep, taxi and auto services ensure that you do not have even slightest of issue hassling you in such a wonderful place.
