Take a ride uphill to see the plantations
Getting the most obvious one out of the way first, you can’t leave Munnar without checking out the beautifully lush and green tea plantations up the hills. You can park your transport at any point and enjoy a beautiful view of the rich greenery all around. The higher up you go, the more chances you have of seeing clouds meet the trees and the plantations.
