Ride to God’s Own Country – Munnar – Bangalore Bikers
Bangalore bikers organised a 3 day ride to God’s own country – Munnar. There were 18 bikes and 19 people were part of this lifetime memorable ride. Munnar is a town in the Western Ghats mountains in India’s Kerala state.
Munnar, a hill station and former resort for the British Raj elite, is set within rolling hills dotted with tea plantations established in the 19th century. Eravikulam National Park, home to the endangered mountain goat Nilgiri tahr, is a seasonal trekking destination encompassing the Lakkam Waterfalls and 2,695m-tall Anamudi Peak.
Refreshing breeze, mountains covered with mist and acres of tea plantations, beautiful valleys and mud roads between tea gardens and some adventurous ride through the hair pin curves would definitely be enthralling to anyone, and that is exactly why Munnar is one among the most loved hill stations in India and Munnar Tourism is well known. Stretched along the Western Ghats, this ‘hill range’ as it is widely called, has many breathtaking sights and landscape perfect for honeymoon and even for a family vacation.
Munnar in local language Malayalam translates into Three rivers and the name would have originated from the fact that this hill station which was the erstwhile summer capital of British was located in the confluence of three rivers.
