They say in India, there is nothing more refreshing than a good cup of tea or as locally called ‘chai’! But visiting a place in India where tea actually comes from is an even more refreshing experience. Kerala, the God’s own country and one of the most sought after destinations in India, has some really great tea plantations to visit. As flights connectivity to India’s southern state is excellent from the rest of the world, reaching here is always convenient. People who are planning on reserving tickets on flights to Kerala for a holiday that will recharge their body, mind and soul, should definitely include Munnar and Wayanad in their itinerary.

Munnar
The popular hill station, Munnar is one of the most fascinating towns of Kerala blessed with natural grandeur that never fails to draw nature lovers. The British, who had the town as the summer Resort during the period of the Raj, account for major chunk of tourists reserving flights tickets to Kerala and visiting Munnar. Undulating hills carpeted with lush green tea bushes is one of the most overwhelming sights in the town. The name ‘Munnar’ literally means three rivers and has been derived from the merging of three rivers namely Madhurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly. Tourists taking a tour of the breathtaking tea estates do include a visit to the factory to see how the locals grow the popular Assam Tea as well as the pruning, plucking and processing into the packed tea that is simply a treat to the senses. You may even taste some of the best Assam Tea during your tour. The lazy and relaxed pace of life here is every bit worth the monies spent on air tickets aboard flights and accommodation for stay at this tranquil escapade. Keen travellers can book flights and accommodation for holidays during August to May which is the main tourist season here.
