Munnar is a town located at 10°09'N 77°06'E of the southern state of Kerala in India. The name is most often used to refer to the whole tourist area, of which the town forms a part. The etymology of Muannar is believed to be derived from the Malayalam words Muunu (three) and aaru (river), referring to the town's strategic location at the confluence of the mountain streams of Muthirappuzha, Chanduvarai and Kundala. Situated at nearly 1,600 to 1,800 meters above sea level, the region is surrounded by vast jungles and remains wet and cold during most of the year.
The people of Munnar share in the culture and traditions of Kerala. Tamil immigrants from the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu also figure significantly in the population.
The area is between 1,600 and 1,800 meters above sea level and typically stays between 22 °C and 34 °C. The tourist season is from August to March but is especially lovely during the monsoons, with little streams and rivulets all over the place.
