Tata Tea Plantations - Munnar

The Kanan Devan Hils Plantation Co. was taken over by Tata Tea Ltd. The plantations are located in Munnar and are a great place to rejuvenate oneself.
Breathtakingly beautiful. Would remind you of the country life as they show it in soutn Indian movies. The tea museum is one to watch out for! Also, do take out time to watch a Kathakali performance in one of the theaters. From the 'shringaar' to the 'nritya', one was one of the most spectacular things I came across on the trip.

Eravikulam National Park - Munnar

This national park is the breathtaking home of a plethora of precious flora and fauna, and lies along the Western Ghats. Considered the magnum opus of Kerala, the park provides magnificent panoramic views of tea plantations and rolling hills blanketed in mist. The grasslands protect the endangered Nilgiri Tahr and harbour several other species of animals, birds and butterflies, including a new species of frog that was discovered recently. Eravikulam park becomes a sought after destination when the hill slopes get veiled by a carpet of blue, a miraculous phenomena caused by the flowering of Neelakurinji, which blooms only once in 12 years. Anamudi, translating to elephant's forehead and located within the park, is the highest peak of South India and its might and height of 8,842 ft can be enjoyed from a distance at Rajamala, from where the endangered Nilgiri Tahr can also be observed. The park provides a number of safaris for convenient and safe tourism around the park. The Kurinji Trail, which follows through misty tracks of protected animals and flowery grasslands, is a must for trekking lovers. Another famous but charming spot is the Lakkom Waterfalls, which provide an enchanting view along with an eco-shop cafeteria to eat at. Close to these falls is a log house, which offers comfortable accommodation with complimentary food and the much desired solitude and peace amidst the lap of nature.
