1. Munnar via Kochi (Rs 3,205)

Tucked away in the Idukki district of Kerala at the confluence of three rivers is Munnar, an ideal destination whether you’re travelling solo, with family or with friends. The hill station is a three-and-a-half hour drive from Kochi and is well known for vast number of tea and cardamom plantations that stretch far into the distance. Go on tea trials, bike around the hills, explore the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, which is home to rare birds, trek in the Western Ghats, or try your hand at rappelling and rock climbing. Check out the roaring beauty of the Attukal Waterfalls and Pallivasal Falls, along with the scenic Mattupetty Dam. Munnar has some stunning views that will keep you coming back for more.
