On the way, we visit Valara Cheeyappara waterfalls & lush green tea plantation. Take a break with a cup of local South Indian Tea. Check in at hotel on arrival at Munnar. After a spicy authentic Kerala meal at the hotel at 2.30pm, we visit Eravikulam national park, one of the main tourist attractions, where you can find the endangered species of Nilgiri Tahr (mountain goat called "varayadu" in Malayalam). On a trek to Rajamala ("King of hills" in Malayalam), you can also find Gaur, Langur, lion-tailed macaque, and elephants depending on the season and time of travel. The altitude is 1,600-1,800 m above sea level. Temperature ranges from a minimum of 0 Celsius to a maximum of 28 Celsius. Warm clothes and rain gear are recommended. The Tea Museum in Munnar is perhaps the choicest of places to preserve and showcase some of the exquisite and interesting aspects on the genesis and growth of tea plantations in Kerala's high ranges. A section of the Tea museum also houses classic bungalow furniture, typewriters, wooden bathtub, magneto phone, iron oven, manual calculators and EPABX of the1909 telephone system. We head towards Munnar town, a beautiful hill station, which was the summer resort of the British. Tourists come here to see the vast tea plantations of the area. The town itself is typically Indian with the usual shops, guest houses and is really beautiful and traditional. It is a good place to stay to see the surrounding countryside. It is also a popular place for Indian honeymooners. Overnight at hotel.

Breakfast at the hotel and we drive to Munnar town. If waking up to music of birds, witnessing greenery all around and experiencing cold breeze is your thing then Munnar is surely the spot that you are looking for. Munnar is famous for tea plantations, hills and nature’s green backdrop. It was once the summer resort of the British in South India. Munnar is a part of the Western Ghats and has the famous Anamudi hill which is the tallest in south India. The town is divided into two parts, Old Munnar, where the tourist information office is, where the bus station and most guest houses are located. Three rivers - Mattupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru flow through this town, but join some distance away from Munnar. Munnar is famous for its tea plantations, many of them started by the British. The "Kannan Devan" brand of tea from Tata is cultivated and processed here. The strobilanthus ("neelakurinji" in Malayalam, the local language), a blue flower which blooms only every 12 years, is found in this region. It bloomed last in December 2006. Malayalam and Tamil are the main languages spoken here. You can manage with English or Hindi. Packed lunch will be served. Next we visit the Matupetty Dam and Reservoir. The location is a very popular tourist destination. Further up from the dam is Echo Point. Tourists are expected to scream in the valley. You could shop at the stalls put up on the banks of the reservoir. The Blossom International Park is located at 3 km away from Munnar on the way to Cochin. Commencing from Headworks Dam it stretches about 15 acres. Beautiful gardens with rare varieties of plants and flowers, shady trees, facilities for water cycling, boating cycling for kids, roller skating etc. awaits you. Late evening we return to the hotel. Later at night we adjourn for a sumptuous local buffet star dinner-a variety of local delicacies.
