Munnar | Tourist Destination in Kerala


Munnar is rising as three mountain streams merge-Mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala. This hill station was once the summer resort of the former British Government in South India at 1,600 m above sea level. Sprawling tea plantations, picturesque towns, winding lanes and vacation facilities make this a popular resort town. Among the exotic flora found here in the forests and grasslands is the Neelakurinji. This flower, which bathes the hills once in every twelve years, will bloom next in 2018. Munnar also has South India's highest peak, Anamudi, towering over 2,695 m. Anamudi is an ideal place for trekking. 

Let's now explore some of the options in and around Munnar that would provide ample opportunities for travelers to enjoy Munnar's captivating hill station.





Eravikulam National Park

One of Munnar's main attractions is Eravikulam National Park. This park is famous for its endangered resident-the Nilgiri Tahr. Spread over a 97 sq. area. This park is also home to a number of rare butterfly species, animals and birds. A great place to go trekking, the park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations caressed by blankets of mists. When the hill slopes here are covered in a blue carpet, resulting from the Neelakurinji flowering, the park becomes a hot destination. It is an endemic plant to this part of the Western Ghats that blooms once in twelve years.

Anamudi Peak

The Anamudi Peak is located inside the Eravikulam National Park. This is South India's highest peak, at a height of over 2700 m. Treks to the peak are permitted with permission from the Eravikulam Forest and Wildlife authorities.

Mattupetty

Mattupetty is another prime draw for visitors, about 13 km from Munnar Town. Located at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level, Mattupetty is known for its storage masonry dam and the beautiful lake that offers pleasurable boat rides, allowing one to enjoy the surrounding hills and landscape. Mattupetty's fame is also attributed to the dairy farm run by the Indo-Swiss Livestock Project, where different high yielding breeds of cows can be found.

Pallivasal

Pallivasal, placed at concerning three kilometre from Chithirapuram in Munnar is that the venue of the primary hydro-electric project in Kerala. it's an area of huge scenic beauty and is usually favoured by guests as a picnic spot.

Chinnakanal & Anayirangal

Near Munnar Town lies Chinnakanal and its waterfalls, popularly known as the Power House Waterfalls, which cascade down a steep rock 2000 m above sea level. The spot is enriched with a scenic view of the ranges of the Western Ghat. You reach Anayirangal after traveling about seven kilometers from Chinnakanal. Anayirangal, 22 km from Munnar, is a lush green tea plant carpet. A trip to the beautiful reservoir is an unforgettable experience. The dam of Anayirangal is surrounded by tea plantations and evergreen forests.

Top Station

The Top Station, which is about 32 km from Munnar, is at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level. It's the highest point on the Munnar-Kodaikanal road. Travelers to Munnar make it a point to visit Top Station to enjoy the panoramic view of Tamil Nadu's neighboring state. Enjoying the Neelakurinji flowers blooming over a vast area is among the prime spots in Munnar.

Tea Museum

Munnar has a heritage of its own when it comes to the origin and evolution of tea plantations. Taking this legacy into account and preserving and exhibiting some of the exquisite and interesting aspects of the genesis and growth of tea plantations in the high ranges of Kerala, Tata Tea in Munnar opened a museum exclusively for tea some years ago. This Tea Museum houses artifacts, photographs, and machinery; all of which have a story to tell about the origins and growth of tea plantations in Munnar. The museum is located at Munnar's Tata Tea Nallathanni Estate and is worth a visit.
