enragement between lovers. It has remained a dilemma amongst newly-weds for several
generations, the answer to which is narrated by a beautiful place called Kerala – A “state” of
tranquility. A state with beaches to adorn one’s tan, hills that speak folklore, cuisines that linger for days and backwaters from the land beyond; voted best honeymoon destination in India by National Geographic, Kerala is lovers’ paradise with an enchanting array of sights, sounds and feelings.
This feeling of love is heightened at Kerala’s most popular hill station called Munnar. At 1600m above sea level, Munnar is home to a myriad tea estates and picturesque little towns.
