Tourists are flocking in droves to the hill resort of Munnar to spend the Onam holidays. All rooms in resorts, homestays, and hotels in Munnar have been fully booked by tourists till September 3. In keeping with the spirit of the season, all prominent resorts in the area hosted sadyas (elaborate feasts) on the day of Onam.

Besides Munnar, other popular tourist locales such as Rajamala, Mattupetty, flower garden, botanical garden, hydel park, and the old children’s park of the Munnar District Tourist Promotion Council, have also been witnessing a rush of visitors for the past few days.

Meanwhile, more police personnel have been deployed in Munnar town and other tourist centres in order to prevent crimes and untangle traffic gridlocks caused by the rush of visitors during the Onam holidays.

Police personnel from stations under the Munnar subdivision and the police camp have been deployed on special duty for the duration of the holidays.

Oddly, the hill station is experiencing high temperatures during the day even as rain has stayed away. The temperatures during the day swing between 20 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius.

Lower temperatures are experienced only during the night and early morning. The morning temperature is between 8 degrees Celsius and 12 degrees Celsius. But, in the evenings, thick mist blankets areas from the Headworks Dam to Radaam Mile.
