Hello,

I am a little confused about when is the best time to visit Munnar?
My wife and I dont like the heat too much and prefer cooler temperatures.

What lured me to Munnar were some great pictures of mist and fog and would love to expereince that..

Is Munnar hot in May? Would September a good time..dont mind a little rainfall here and there..my travel options are April 26-May 4 or Sept 5th to Sept 10. Which would you recommend?

Thanks in advance

Munnar would be bit hot to be honest in april end to may.Best time is december for mist and fog.but for you its September just after rains it wouyld be like heaven lush green and water in waterfalls .It will be just great if you dont mind occasional shower.

actually for mist and fog try kodaikanal during december its just great.

Agree with Santos... Munnar is best during /after the rains. There is a chill in the air , even misty at times ,and when it clears its green all around.

I would advice September against may too. There will be a small chance that your vacation may get washed out. But it would still be better than being there in summer.

Thanks for all the prompt replies.

Will book munnar for September.
Thought i will add Kumarakom as well in the itenary.

Is there a direct road from Munnar to Kumarakom backwaters or does one have to go via Cochin?

Any suggestions for good 3-4 star properties in Kumarakom - with a nice view of backwaters or lagoon?

Thanks

I would recommend the Lemon Tree Resort at Lake Vembanad (about 17kms before Allepey). We had visited it in December 2008 and really enjoyed the stay. Situated right on the lake, the property has a beautiful location and an infinity pool that looks like its stretching out right into the lake. Fairly reasonably priced, the only drawback is that is there is only one restaurant at the hotel. But the service was very good, and the people very friendly.
