The Vacation

About a couple of months back, we had gone for a vacation.

Mumbai> Cochin >Munnar> Allepy > Kumarakom > Cochin > Back Home
Kerala is really the God's own country. Hope you enjoy a tiny part of it here, with me.
Here are a few pics with some description.

Spot ME here!

Lots of such alluring waterfalls enroute Munnar from Kochi. I'm getting into the vacation mood!

We stayed in a wonderful hotel named 'The Tea County' in Munnar

Sounds english right? It looked English and felt like one too. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Me and Aravind enjoyed the typical Kerala massage here. It's a must for all those who enjoy getting pampered and more so for those who don't. You'll realise what you'd been missing so far!

This is the right view from the balcony.

The front overlooks the mountains. Would have loved staying here for eternity, sharing my days with those magnificient trees and watching every bud bloom.

After a quiet morning, sipping tea and watching the sunrise, we were ready for a little excitement. We took a boat ride in a lake in Munnar.

Tanya was all excited after this photo. She looks a bit scared here. That's calm before the storm ;)

This is another spot for a Kashmiri boat ride. We skipped that but just look how amazing the place is.

Spot Aravind here!

After this we were off to the misty mountains. Lot of winding roads, but in the end we reached a spectacular spot and literally took a walk in the clouds.

It is kind of curious when you can't see how deep the valley runs. I always imagine it to be extremely deep! ;)

Can you see that house in the edge of the cliff?
I wonder how it would feel living there?

Next day was our trip to 'Aanamala' ( elephant-mountain), a 45 mins bus drive from the town Munnar. Private cars aren't allowed here.

Just look at the backdrop.

Close your eyes,
turn any which way and open your eyes for a brand new magnificient view.

There will be a part 2 to this in a short time.
