Munnar, located at an altitude of 1600 meters above the sea level, the place offers an ideal escapade from the heat and buzzing of urban life. The mist covered rolling hills, exotic plantations, colonial remnants, panoramic views, and pristine wilderness all add to the exquisite beauty of this hill station.
Our munnar journey started around 4pm(I know too late to start for munnar) and travelling by bike. its an overnight ride through Hosur , Salem. As we are riding very slow because we know we had to cross one tiger reserve and one wildlife sanctuary and that won’t be open around night. So, next day early morning we reached to tiger reserve and ride inside tiger reserve is beautiful(sad we din’t spotted any tiger over there).
Roads are nice and scenery around you is spellbounding. After crossing the tiger reserve we reached to some wildlife sanctuary. Ride through the narrow roads of ghats is always excites me and adventurous.
Finally after clicking couple of pics on the way we reached main munnar town around 12pm . After reached there,we are hungry like anything and we are tired after long bike ride. Had some food there and went to get fresh and meantime we also got a 1bhk to stay for 8 people.
After had some rest and sleep we started for madupatty dam. I must say view from madupatty is awesome. It looks like we are out of india and travelling somewhere around UK.
Lake in the middle and hills surrounding is a picturesque view. we had long photo session out there. It was already evening when we finished our photo session and decided to returned to our home stay.
Its a short trip and we planned to leave for Bangalore next day by morning. But before that we planned to go to echo point and while going to echo point clicked couple of pics of tea gardens and the views around us.
Near to echo point found a good place which we saw from the dam. Lake in the middle and hills surrounding by. We had fun over there for sometime.
While returning to Munnar main town,clicked couple of pics which are as beautiful as Munnar.
So, finally we started from Munnar around 3pm and reached bangalore next day morning after a whole night ride.
That ends the journey from Bangalore to Munnar and munnar to Bangalore. It was tiring and hectic journey though enjoyable ride through the ghats and tiger reserve.
