In this episode, The Musafir Stories takes the listeners to God's own country, Kerala, and talks about Munnar in Idukki District.
What listeners say about Munnar - A Slice of God's Own Country
Very mediocre travel story on Munnar
In this episode the anchors have decided to do it on their own which means you get to keep on listening to only their story of travel and in their own broken English. They need to brush up on basic English grammar and general communication skills before attempting to tell us their travel story. Secondly they need to write down on a piece of paper where all they visited instead of discussing and guessing on the show. They have to get their facts right. For eg Kolukkumalai Sunrise point is in TN and not in Kerala. Since I have visited the place with my family a few years ago, I could easily recall this wonderful place on which one could share one's experience starting from a Jeep trip on an uneven trail by itself an experience in the wee hours till return. This place is thronged by Foreigners to witness the Sunrise which is the best one that we have seen compared to so many places including Andamand Radhanagar beach. Better than this is what we saw recently in Lempeyong, Bali which is called Heaven's Gate during February. Faiza says you could go on a two wheeler to this point?? There is a big cartel to reach out to this place by the local Jeep/ Suv owners. They charge you a flat trip charge irrespective of no of people. Two families shared a suv then from our resort to beat the cartel. After they drop you, we need to take a small trek to reach the sunrise point and grab a place to click photos much before the rise. They have not spoken about another important sight seeing place which is a must visit place to a Spice factory or a tour they call it where there is a guide who takes you around explaining about various spice plants in their Garden. This is a very enriching experience and not to be missed. Normally after the tour you could buy spices from their adjoining Store and grab a Kerala style meal from their kitchen. Oops not to miss on spending some leisurely time near the adjoining river and your guide will help you click pics. I am yet again disappointed with such average coverage. Boat ride is another attraction. Please skip this too.
