The state of Kerala lies sandwiched between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea. The breadth of

the state is just about 150 kms. Within this landscape there are highlands, midlands, and lowlands. The

tallest peak of the region is about 3 km above sea level (Anaimudi, Idukki district) while some places

in Kuttanad (Alappuzha district) are actually below sea level. The variety in the geography is the prime

reason for Kerala to be one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world.

The major hill stations in Kerala are Munnar, Wayanad, Ponmudi, and Wagamon. There are tea

plantations through the mountains of these hill stations. Tea production in Kerala was begun by the

Britishers who ruled here. There are numerous waterfalls and some major dams in the hill stations.
