Turning at an intersection on the highway to Munnar town, continue on the road to Aanachal. A hush filled with possibilities hangs in the bracing air. The road passes little hamlets, dipping and then climbing past sparkling rivulets and little waterfalls.
Guests arrive at Misty Lake through a path that travels to the apex of a hillock, welcomed by vividly plumed birds. A cluster of cottages with distinctive pyramidal roofs is situated on the lower slope of the hillock, their balconies overlooking a valley, bramble and silver oak trees. Paved pathways illuminated with lamps rows of lamps connect the cottages. Higher up the slope, Misty Lakes’ multi cuisine restaurant with a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape and the seemingly endless stretches of mountains in the distance is set beside a badminton court and play area for children and a couple of cottages.
Misty Lake is also surrounded by a fascinating range of trees, spice and flowering plants. Through the day, it is nature’s theatre at its best - mist descending to the bowl of the valley, pink streaked tendrils rise spectacularly in the air, simply memorable – Misty Lake.
