I have been visited various hill stations in India but Munnar is one of my favorite from them. I visited Munnar hill station back in 2012 (January month), it was bit hot during that time but December can be best month to visit this place. We stayed in a hotel located in outskirt of Munnar city and i must recommend staying in such places which are far from the city.
