We hired a driver and asked him to take us off the beaten path. This was a wonderful day out in the hills and countryside.
Munnar is tea country. We saw a lot of tea plantations and stopped at a small roadside cafe for a taste. Next stop was Echo Point which was pretty but a bit crowded for us. Maybe because it was the weekend and families were out enjoying the country and lake with canoes here along with horse rides as well.
Then on to Athirapally for lunch overlooking the falls. This was most enjoyable. And even though it started to rain, that made for some interesting misty shots in between showers.
