We stayed at jj cottage in order to trek in Munnar. It's a good base for trekking as its outside the main centre and Eric can help organise all the treks for you at a very reasonable price, we did a sunrise trek with the guide Velu who was amazing! The only negative was a misunderstanding regarding the price of...

600 Rs for a double room with bathroom. Very clean, the family is really nice. We really enjoyed our stay here after 2 days of trekking. The owner advice us traditional ayurvedic massage in an ayurvedic center that was far from the center and not really good, we don’t advice you to follow his recommendation.

Well worth the money with a view over the edge of town with hills in the distance. The room was exceptionally clean with hot water which was good as Munnar was quite chilly...
