One of the many reasons why newlyweds go on a honeymoon is to be alone in a new place where no one knows the couple. Of course, there is privacy within the confines of a hotel room but what about privacy in the open. The honeymoon destination is normally a new place and in this place the couple enjoys privacy even in the open. The honeymooners from not only India but all over the world can look up to Munnar, a beautiful hill station in God’s Own Country, Kerala.
Best Munnar Honeymoon packages
The Western Ghats have thrown up three incredible hill stations that are the pride of South India in Ooty, Kodaikanal and Munnar. Munnar in Kerala is a great honeymoon destination for Indians as well as international travelers.
The hill station is located at the confluence of Kundalathree, Nallathanni and Mudrapuzha Rivers, three small mountain rivers flowing at an elevation in excess of 5000 feet. The name Munnar means three rivers.
Munnar, as are many other places in India, came in for special treatment from the British while they were ruling India. The hill station became a favorite summer resort for its remarkable climate during the summer months. The location of massive tea gardens in the area complements the natural environment of the area.
Munnar’ natural environment speckled with massive tea gardens is an ideal place to spend a honeymoon. Many places of interest in Munnar beckon all types of honeymooning couples. There is adventure, there are pristine places to visit, there are treks on benign routes, there are treks under tough conditions, there is wildlife to be seen, there is the highest peak in the region and there is exotic flora including the Neelakurinji, which only blossoms every twelve years.
The Beauty of Neelakurinji
The year 2018 will be a great year for planning a honeymoon trip to Munnar. The Neelakurinji is slated for blossoming in that year. The place to visit would be Top Station, located 5,500 feet above sea level, from where the valley can be seen awash with the shimmering purplish blue hues of the Neelakurinji flowers. Another place to be is the Eravikulam National Park from where the slopes of the hills will be festooned with the Neelakurinji flowers. The park hosts the Nilgiri Tahr, an endangered species of goat. The park and its environs are at its romantic best when the mist moves in the air

The couples that love natural beauty should visit the Power House Waterfalls. From here the Western Ghats can be seen in all its beauty with lush green forests along the slopes. A quiet evening with the sun setting would be a romantic moment worth experiencing.
