ABOUT Thattekkad

   
 
    Munnar meaning "Three rivers" is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams Muthirappu (Kannimalayar), Nallathanni and Kundala and is a delightful, small hill station. Munnar was the summer resort of the British Government in the south. Munnar has some of the biggest tea plantations in the world. This hill station more than 5000 feet above sea level with its mist and flowers, has very good potential to bedeveloped into a tourist spot. Situated at 1600m above the sea level this hill station, leaves you with a cold summer sweetness. Completely dotted with lakes, reservoirs, mountains streams, scabrous rocks, wooded valleys, wavy grass hills, this hill station offers a great variety choices at short intervals. Along the quite drives of Munnar, through the unending sea of tea plantations, signs of human life itself is a rare sight apart from similarly attired plantation workers.




The unending dominance of the tea plantations and the mountain flower Neelakkurinji that bloom once in 12 years are both synonymous landmarks of Munnar. Playing mists, soul searching winds, hurling waterfalls, cold monsoons, picturesque towns, fragrant cardamom bushes, sprawling tea plantations, shaven silver oaks, indomitable elephant herds, long winding lanes, the bluish tint of the Neelakkurinji mountains, floating tunes of early morning radio, strangely uniform herds of plantation workers. With the mist covering in the valleys around, the plateau of a resorts sticking out, it is a heavenly feeling of being on the legendary flaying machine - Pushpak, floating over the clouds.   about munnar
