Munnar is one of the best-known hill stations in the whole of Asia. It’s something like five to six thousand feet above sea level. Lush green tea gardens are a sight to behold, and couple that with immaculately pristine and unpolluted air, real cool environment, and remarkably affable ambience. You have to see it to believe. No wonder National Geographic described Kerala as one of the must destinations for the globetrotter. But Kerala is nothing without Munnar — and Munnar is nothing without Hillview. Munnar, in the vernacular, means three rivers. Munnar is the meeting point for rivers Muthirapuzha, Nallathanny and Periavurrai. In Munnar — and maybe nowhere else in the world — you could feel the otherwise elusive clouds drop gently onto your shoulders. In Munnar, you could experience the otherworldly feel of the cool mist surround you. And, in Munnar, you could find yourself rejuvenated, revitalized and invigorated after spending a couple or triple of days at Hillview Munnar. Well-known globetrotters say Hillview is the best place to stay at in Munnar. They are right. Beyond the tea estates and sprawling across the hills are rich tropical forests abounding in flora and fauna — some of them very rare and exotic. They also contain an assortment of wildlife such as Nilgiri Languor, Sambar, Gaur, Lion tailed Macaques and wild Tusker. Munnar is an ecologically significant spot.
