off the beaten path and not much frequented, but worth the drive and the setting. Nestled between the bluish mountains u can combine it with with a trek in to the country side abt 15 km further up where theres a lot of interesting fruit gardens.

These can be found at on hills around Munnar. There might be many of them but we found these near our hotel - The Wind.
