Discover The Plantations of Munnar, Kerala

- A Secret Retreats journey -
4 days / 3 nights
from 760 USD /person



“From Kashmiri origin, based in Delhi and owner of Neeleshwar Hermitage in Kerala, Altaf travels extensively and all the time around India, he knows the country like the back of his hand, and with his team, they have prepared several short itineraries to discover several key destinations in India: here the hill station of Munnar.”

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • Tea and Spice plantations
  • Lake and Forest hikes

Munnar is a former hill-station founded by the British during the period of colonial rule. At an elevation of 1,600 metres (5250 feet), it is pleasantly cool to visit after the heat of the lowlands. Tea grows well here and the lower slopes of the hills are carpeted by orderly plantations of emerald-green bushes, tended by colourfully-attired tea-pickers. Kerala's highest peak, Anamudi (2695m), which is also the highest Indian peak south of the Himalayas, rises up above the town. This journey offers you to explore the nature in the hills around Munnar.
