Head to the misty hills of Munnar if you want to escape the sweltering heat of the cities.
With the start of the tourist season, more number of tourists are travelling to the pretty hill station to enjoy its scenic sights and relax in the cool climate. The peak season in Munnar is during the months of April and May.
Though the daytime temperature could be up to 28-30 degrees Celsius, the weather will be pleasant by the evening. The early morning temperature hovers around 8 degrees Celsius. The hill station has been receiving intermittent summer showers too.
After the massive floods of 2018, the number of tourists heading to Munnar during the mid-summer holidays had reduced. Now with the Covid curbs being lifted, the tourism sector is expected to bounce back. Hotels and resorts are reportedly getting more number of bookings than previous years. Tourists can find accommodation for prices starting at Rs 500.
Mattupetty Dam, echo-point, top station, Kundala dam, Periyavarai and even the Rajamala, home to the Nilgiri Tahr, have now been opened for tourists.
