Munnar Becomes Busy as Snow Falls on the Mountain Peaks

The flow of tourist towards Munnar to enjoy the chilled weather has increased in the last few days. The flow of tourists which started to increase since November is expected to reach its full potential by Christmas vacation. The hill stations of Kerala such as Munnar, Thekkady, Vagamon etc has witnessed the huge flow of travellers in the last few days especially the weekends. A long queue of tourist vehicles can be seen on the road from Adimali to Munnar. Around 2500 tourists reach the Rajamalai wildlife sanctuary on a daily basis.

As per the tourism department around 1500 travellers visit Mattupetty in Munnar on a daily basis and this number is expected to increase in the coming days. Tourist destinations in Munnar such as Kolukkumalai and Meesappulimala have already started witnessing the increased flow of tourists. In the last few days, the temperature dipped to almost 4 degree celsius in Munnar town and the nearby estates such as Lekshmi, Chenduvarai and Chittuvara experienced a temperature of 2 degree Celsius. The withdrawal of the rain and the clear sky in Munnar has contributed to the dip in the temperature.

As construction work is going on along the Kochi-Dhanushkodi highway, a 42 kilometer road distance from Munnar to Bodimettu has been blocked from morning 7 to evening 7. As  a result, the tourists are reaching Munnar by deviating from Pooppara and taking the Rajakumari-Kunchithanni-Pallivasal route.
