   Home » Hill Station Holidays » Munnar


Munnar RiverMunnar is a picturesque scope of the lofty Western Ghats. Located at the Idukki district of Kerala State in India. The word "Munnar" means three rivers. 3 mountain streams (Madurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala) are joining together here. Situated at 1600 meter above sea level, this hill station was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India.

Sprawling Tea plantations, picture book towns, winding lanes, and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town. Among the exotic flora found in the forests and grasslands here is the Neelakurinji. This flower which bathes the hills in the blue every twelve years, will bloom next in 2006 AD. Munnar also has the highest peak in South India - Anamudi , which towers over 2695 m. Anamudi is an ideal spot for trekking.

Tea Estate
Munnar is essentially a tea town. The tea plantations have now been taken over by the TATA tea company. The visitor is greeted with miles and miles of unending tea plantations on entry into Munnar. In Munnar we can see the Assam variety of tea plants.

The varied habitat in the sanctuary supports a number of species of terrestrial, aquatic and arboreal animals. The major tourist activities that can be undertaken in the wild life parks are wild life tours. Staying at jungle lodges, tree houses, fishing camps etc. are other facilities available there. Most of the Southern Indian wild animals and birds are found in Munnar and surroundings. These include the grizzled giant squirrel, champak squirrel, elephant, sambar deer, gaur etc

Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary
(60 km from Munnar) It is located in Devikulam Taluks on the Tamilnadu border. The Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary lies in the rain shadow region of the Western Ghats. The sanctuary is also haven for two highly endangered species-the grizzled giant squirrel and the star tortoise. Another attraction is Thoovanam falls on the river Chinnar.

Eravikulam National Park
(15 km from Munnar) The Nilgiri Tahr can be observed at close quarters here. The park is breathtakingly beautiful and is easily comparable to the best mountain ranges found anywhere in the world. The park is divided into 3 regions - the core area, the buffer area and the tourism area. Trekking facilities are available here.

Places Of Interest
Situated at a height of 1700 m , Mattupetty is famous for its highly specialized dairy farm, the Indo-Swiss live stock project. Over 100 varieties of high yielding cattle are reared here. The Mattupetty lake and dam , just a short distance from the farm, is a very beautiful picnic spot.
