Welcome

Nestled in the High Ranges of Western Ghats in the State of Kerala, lies MUNNAR with its lush green tea plantations and breathtaking scenery interspersed with valleys, cliffs, gurgling brooks and streams.......... Bristling with wildlife and crystal clear trout streams, the enticing charm of Munnar is simply irresistible.

Very little has changed over the years, with the High Range Club retaining its original character and ambience.

Membership of the Club is restricted to corporate planters in Munnar. The High Range Club is affiliated to 41 clubs in the country and 2 overseas Clubs. The Club provides inviting, well-appointed accommodation for its members, members of affiliated Clubs and select visitors.

Trekking, Trout fishing, Picnicking, Photographing… name any nature activity, there is something in Munnar for everyone, from the retired senior citizen to the youngest of the young. There are romantic woods to be explored, fantastic spots to be camped at without disturbing the abundances of flora and fauna you could never hope to find a better location than Munnar.


Accommodation

The distinguished Gentleman’s Lounge transports the visitor back in time to re-live an era long since past of swirling cigar smoke, dimly lit corners, period furniture surrounded by the hats of the pioneering planters who painstakingly fashioned Munnar and its Plantations into what the are today.

The spacious main lounge with facilities is ideal for business meetings and social get-togethers. (View Photo)
