Next on our route was the Kundala dam area. Nothing prepared us for its picturesque beauty, amazing tall trees and clear water. It is also a beautiful picnic spot by the lake.
10.30 AM - If you are a natural beauty seeker, I am sure that out of all the lakes, you will love this one the best. The lake has a breathtaking tranquillity. The lakeside flaunts tall Eucalyptus trees. The lake is surrounded by lush greenery and is frequented by interesting birds. Boating and horse riding are the two activities one can enjoy by the coast of the Kundala Lake.
Another lake we went to was Kundala . Kundala is a picturesque place, about 20 km from Munnar on the way to Top Station. It is at a height of 1700 meters above sea level. It is located at a distance of 20 kilometers from Munnar. In Kundala, cherry blossoms appear twice in a year. The famous Neela Kurunji flowers which bloom once in twelve years, bloom in the hills and valleys around Kundala lake.Ikka Nagar :After having good time at these two dams/Lakes , we went for lunch in Ikka nagar ,Munnar city . We had heard about this hotel , "Hotel Guru Bhavan" so entered inside. First we ordered Kerala thali which had plain rice and different sabjis. Then tried Roti sabji and Tomato rice . Food was not at all did justice to comments which heard previously . But hunger make you eat anything so if you are planning to have food here then i would suggest to try some another restaurant .
Checking out, We left to visit the Top Station, which is on the border of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. On our way to Top Station, We stopped by the Echo Point. We had to fill in and do the touristy stuff too. Bought obligatory Nariyal Paani and started screaming. It does echo! Soon we stopped at Kundala Lake and did some boating. Not because we wanted to do boating, but because its beautiful. A lake amidst the hills, the view was breathtaking. We finally reached Top Station.. Surrounded by clouds, We couldn't see anything. A little bit of trekking has to be done from the parking to reach the Top Station point, but nothing major that cannot be managed. Photo sessions were obligatory, and so was eating Mirchi Pakoda. Kerala has the best pakode, just btw!
