Munnar


It is one of the attractions that contributed to Kerala's popularity as a travel destination among domestic and foreign travelers. It is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. You can get there from Cochin or from Madurai. This hill station is marked by vast expanses of tea plantations, colonial bungalows, rivulets, waterfalls and cool weather. It is also an ideal destination for trekking and mountain biking.


Eravikulam National Park located about 15 km from Munnar; this park is famous for its endangered inhabitant - the Nilgiri Tahr. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes here get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of Neelakurinji. It is a plant endemic to this part of the Western Ghats which blooms once in twelve years. The last time it bloomed was in 2006. Anamudi Peak is located inside the Park and treks to the peak are allowed with permission from the Forest and Wildlife authorities at Eravikulam.





Mattupetty is known for its storage masonry dam and the beautiful lake, which offers pleasurable boat rides. You can enjoy the view amazing greenery and rolling slopes around it.




Near the town of Munnar is Chinnakanal. It has the Power House Waterfalls that cascade down a steep rock. It is surrounded by dense forests and steep mountains and is very scenic.



Top station is the highest point of the Munnar-Kodaikanal road, offers beautiful views specially if you can get here at sunrise!




Echo point as the name suggests is where you go to scream your lungs out, that is apart from the view there !





Tea gardens!! Green all the way! You can buy some amazing tea here and enjoy some freshly made tea at the gardens while you stroll around.
