If you are coming in flight you can hire tourist taxies from airports in Cochin (Ernakulam), Coimbatore or Madurai.
If you are a budget traveller with a show string budget you can depend on the buses of State Transport Corporations in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
If you are coming in train then you can alight in any Aluva, Ernakulam Junction, Ernakulam Town stations in Kerala and then proceed to Munnar.
What we wouls suggest you is to make your arrangments much before you arrive with a tour operator and combine it with few of the best tourist attrcations that can be enjoyed along with Munnar like a backwaters experience in Alleppey which is included in our Best of Kerala Package.
Enjoy your trip to Munnar
