Morning post breakfast we head for a half-day tour of Munnar, visiting the world's highest tea estates spread like a green
carpet over hundreds of kilometers, Lush green hills all around - a place to be seen to be believed. Then visit a one-of-a-
kind tea museum - the Tata Tea Museum, which was set up to cater to tea aficionados and connoisseurs, as well as people
who are curious to learn the process of tea-making. The museum preserves the tea legacy of the town, showcasing exquisite varieties of tea, photographs, mementos, and
machinery used in the processing of these aromatic tea leaves. The
museum remains closed on Monday and Good Friday.
After that visit Eravikulam National Park. The first national park of
Kerala and a UNESCO world heritage site, Eravikulam is home to an
immense population of endangered mountain goat, Nilgiri Tahr and
variety of flora and fauna. Further adding to its beauty is the highest
peak in southern India, Anamudi. While exploring the park, you
could spot Nilgiri langurs, leopards, tigers and Indian bison. Also, it
is known for blooming wild balsams and orchids. The park remains
closed for visitors from 29th January 2018 to 31st March 2018 due
to the calving season of Nilgiri Tahr.
After that proceed to Mattupetty Dam. Flanked by steep hills and
lush green tea plantations, Mattupetty Dam is known for its
beautiful lake. View of the valley from the dam is breathtaking,
which makes it quite famous amongst locals to enjoy a picnic. While
here, travelers could choose to enjoy a picturesque cruise or stroll
around and see elephants. The dam is located in the middle of lush
green tea plantations and forests and is an ideal place for trekking.
Then visit one of the popular sightseeing places in Munnar is the
Echo Point which is located at 15 kilometers away from Munnar.
The point is known for its natural echo phenomenon which is what
attracts tourists from all over. People can hear their name
reverberating around the surroundings again and again as they
shout out their name. Situated at an altitude of 600 ft. above sea
level, it also offers a spectacular view of the enchanting valleys
below and surroundings covered in a blanket of lush greenery.
Tourists can take a stroll, soak in the misty landscape or take an
exciting boat ride in a nearby lake. Since, the echo point can only be
reached by trekking, it is suggested to wear comfortable shoes.
After the tour transfer to hotel. Overnight stay at hotel.
