Taste ripple tea to experience the RippleTrails. You’d also come across Ripple Tea Chai Bazar – a new retail initiative across Munnar that sells some of the exclusive high-grown teas and other value-added products. This retail concept was quite unique, besides providing freshly brewed teas, these outlets offer free parking facilities and modern clean rest room facilities which is major requirement for tourists visiting the hill station.

Even though there are many options available for munnar stay, this tea plantation stay will be a destination itself and your visit to Munnar will not be completed without these experiences. This is the best resort in Munnar for a honeymoon and the best choice for families.
