Munnar..... beautiful Munnar

My random thoughts summarized:
  • Visiting a hill station is trill and fun more than a relaxation with friends.
  • Trekking in a path that was never used and the destination unknown is a super duper adventure (esp. wen u find a worn out snake skin in the middle of the path and everyone recollect the "itchadhari nagam" matter ;) )
  • Wen 12 crazy ppl stay awake till 1.00am in the hall in Munnar and discuss abt paranormal activities, the temperature raises to that in Chennai.
  • Dont be lazy to wake up early in the morning for another trek. I happily slept the next day morning only to find that the initially 3 member 'morning trek' gang eventually became 12 minus 1 left at 8.00am (idhudha avanga oorule early morning trek pola)
  • Choose the right resort to stay. Dont believe in exaggerating feedback from friends esp. when the person is a known exaggerator. So "Chancellor resorts" is not worth all the hype by my dear friend DV. If u want to use the resort, one - expect no hospitality and have zero expectation on decent food and hot water bath.
  • Dont forget to visit the neaby potti kadai for MASALA TEA. The taste wont be gr8 but having tea, in a road side shop, with friends, in a hill, in that climate is just out of the world
  • Visiting the usual tourist spots should be avoided\kept for the last day to have max. fun wen with friends.
  • And for the most important thing, pick the right ppl for the trip.


  1. wow !!! Did you say a vacation ? I would like to go on any kind of vacation right now :). :(

  5. @Lavs: yup vacation!! take the break at the right time and enjoy the most of the stress-less files

    @Sathish: no thambi no...indha madri nelamai'le dhan dhairiyama irukkanum. did it really take u on a virtual trek??

    @GC: Thanks CG. I dont kno other resorts :( . But it wud be better if u select one that is outside the Munnar town. Bcoz this time wen we went, it was hot in the town(like in Chennai) but in the resort that was kind of outskirts to the town, it was pleasant and cool.

    @Chan: No we didnt go there. we had only time from sat 3.00pm to Sun 3.00pm with us for the full trip. So stuck to the trek and some sight seeing.
