After finishing our breakfast, we went for Eravikulam National Park which is 30-35 mins for our hotel through via Munnar - Udumalpet Rd and Eravikulam National Park Rd.
The Eravikulam National Park is located along the crest of western ghats in Idukki.
Leave the car at the entrance gate of the park, then buy the tickets for the bus, (Rs 100 per person),for the rest of the journey,bring the ID card while visiting the place.
You can enjoy the beauty of tea gardens and landscape during bus ride, trek to top of the mountain and on the way, if lucky, get a glimpse of Nilgiri Thar ! Go early in the day, to avoid crowd !
A serene place on a mountain top, one can spend time peacefully in nature's lap. Well-maintained by the forest department, with transportation facilities and other amenities.This place is also famous for its purple flower(neelakurinji) which blossoms every 12 years,and also for Nilgiri Thar (Hemitragus hylocrius).It's a must visit place if you visit to Munnar. Placid lakes, never-ending plantations, and sprawling grasslands are ubiquitous in Munnar. There are many features that make the Rajamalai National Park and its premises unique among the deluge of grasslands. Rajamalai is located within the Eravikulam National Park which spreads over an extensive area of 97 sq.km.
But we missed the beds of blue, as we visited in 2017 and the flowers again bloomed in 2018, we did saw few flower buds. Trek all the way up to have the majestic view of the Rajamalai hill and Anamudi is located within the Park
