During the previous season in 2006, more than 5 lakhs people visited Munnar and the authorities are expecting double the number of travellers this time and are making elaborate arrangements for the safe and smooth conduct of the season. For reducing the long queues before the Entry Ticket counters and minimizing the troubles, online ticket vending facility is being introduced this time. This move will be convenient for the travellers. But the authorities are planning to charge Rs.150 for each online entrance ticket, against the counter ticket that sells at Rs.110. People are wondering why the difference in the price. Actually things or services that are sold online are expected to be cheaper as they require less staffs' effort and facilities.
